Fairchild Semiconductor's Shorted-Anode IGBTs Provide High Reliability and Superior Switching for High-Power Induction Heating Applications
High-Voltage IGBTs Reduce Overall System Costs, Board Size and Total Power Losses
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- High-power and high-frequency induction heating (IH) appliances require lower conduction losses and superior switching performance in order to achieve higher efficiency and system reliability in applications such as IH rice cookers, table-top induction cookers and inverter-based microwave ovens. Fairchild Semiconductor's (NYS: FCS) high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs provide designers with a highly efficient, cost-effective solution to these design challenges.

Ranging from 1100-1400V, this new product family is optimized with intrinsic anti-parallel diodes for soft switching applications. With advancements over the typical non-punch-through (NPT) IGBT technology, Fairchild's shorted-anode silicon technology offers a lower saturation voltage of over 12 percent less than the same rating NPT-trench IGBT. Additionally, when compared to the competitor's IGBT offerings, this product family offers a lower tail-current rate of over 20 percent. These rich features allow Fairchild's advanced IGBTs to provide better thermal performance, higher efficiency and reduced power losses.
Features and Benefits:
High-speed switching frequency range: 10 to 50 kHz
Lowest tail-current in industry for improved switching loss (FGA20S140P)
Low saturation voltage drop than existing NPT trench IGBTs
Robust pot detection noise immunity for reliability
High temperature stable behavior: Tj(max) = 175 degree C
RoHS compliant (Pb-free lead plating)
Packaging and Pricing Information (in US 1,000 quantity pieces)
