With the arrival of the Enhanced Planar (SPT+) IGBT cell technology, ABB set a benchmark in device per-formance that yet still competes with Trench cell IGBTs. Nevertheless, the market continually demands increased performance. ABB has thus combined the merits of the Enhanced Planar cell with Trench tech-nology and created the Enhanced Trench TSPT+ and Enhanced Planar SPT++ IGBTs. Representing the lat-est generation IGBT cell technology, enabling a further loss reduction and hence the possibility to in-crease the current density.
ABB’s vast range of power semiconductors will be expanded with the following new products for trac-tion, power transmission & distribution, renewable energy and industrial markets:
