Alpha and Omega Semiconductor (AOS) enters the IGBT market
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor today announced the release of its first family of high efficiency 600V Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) in AlphaIGBT™ technology.
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS), a designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors, today announced the release of its first family of high efficiency 600V Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) in AlphaIGBT™ technology to address the growing need for energy efficient devices targeting motor control and power conversion applications. AOS's patent pending AlphaIGBT proprietary technology combines a unique cell and vertical device structure to offer best-in-class conduction (VCE(SAT)) versus switching loss (EOFF) trade-off and longer short-circuit capability. As a result, AlphaIGBT enables a wide operation frequency range to address a variety of applications such as white goods (air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines), industrial equipment (general inverters, servo motors, sewing machines, welding machines, uninterruptible power supplies), as well as commercial type heating and solar inverters.
