Fairchild Semiconductor's Shorted-Anode IGBTs an EPC Top-10 Power Products Award Winner
High-Voltage IGBTs Reduce Total Power Losses and Board Size in High-Power Induction Heating Applications
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fairchild Semiconductor (NYS: FCS) , a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile semiconductor solutions, has been named a winner in the 11th annual Top-10 DC-DC Power Product Awards, hosted by Electronic Products China (EPC).
This is the seventh time Fairchild has received this prestigious award, after submitting its high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs for consideration by the panel of judges in the Best Application Award category. This category recognizes outstanding achievement in performance/cost and in understanding the market demands.
These high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs, ranging from 1100-1400V, are 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. These devices are ideal for high-power and high-frequency induction heating (IH) appliances that require lower conduction losses and superior switching performance in order to achieve higher efficiency and system reliability.
Fairchild Semiconductor's field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs provide industry-leading technology to meet the energy efficiency and form factor challenges encountered in today's designs. These applications are part of Fairchild's energy efficient power analog ICs, power discrete and optoelectronics solutions that maximize energy savings in power-sensitive applications.
The Top-10 DC-DC Power Product Awards are designed to highlight significant advances in a technology or its application. The awards emphasize innovation and excellent price/performance, and cover all power products. Submissions are evaluated on three criteria: a significant advancement in a technology or its application, innovative design and a substantial achievement in price/performance. Additionally, there are five individual awards: Technology Breakthrough Award, Best Application Award, Optimized Development Award, Green Energy Award and the Independent Innovation Award.
