With the coming of the Enhanced Planar (SPT+) IGBT cell technology, ABB set a benchmark in device performance 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 technology and created the Improved Trench TSPT+ and Enhanced Planar SPT++ IGBTs. Representing the latest generation IGBT cell technology, enabling a further loss reduction and hence the possibility to in-crease the current density.
ABB’s massive range of power semiconductors will be expanded with the following new products for traction, power transmission & distribution, renewable energy and industrial markets:
