This device is an IGBT developed using an advanced proprietary trench gate field-stop structure. The device is part of the V series IGBTs, which represent an optimum compromise between conduction and switching losses to maximize the efficiency of very high frequency converters. Furthermore, the positive VCE(sat) temperature coefficient and very tight parameter distribution result in safer paralleling operation.
Co-packed with the IGBT a silicon carbide diode has been adopted: no recovery is shown at turn-off of the SiC diode and the already minimal capacitive turn-off behavior is independent of temperature. Its high forward surge capability ensures good robustness during transient phases.
