The latest IGBT chip technology
The generation 7 IGBTs represent the latest IGBT chip technology. This new generation is specifically designed to match the requirements of motor drive applications. The IGBTs come with a significantly lower forward voltage drop and deliver optimized switching performance. Thanks to roughly 25% smaller chips, higher nominal currents can fit into existing power module packages.
In application, the IGBT 7 provides reduced power losses or increased maximum output power and power density. This translates into lower system costs. As to motor drives, the generation 7 IGBT will initially be introduced into conventional drive topologies: CIB (Converter-Inverter-Brake), sixpack and half-bridge configurations. For low and medium power drives, MiniSKiiP and SEMITOP E1/E2 are the first available choice. For higher power classes IGBT 7 is available in SEMiX 3 press-fit and SEMiX 6 press-fit. More power modules are to follow.
