Low profile split dual Si/SiC hybrid IGBT modules featuring multiple circuit topologies available from Powerex
Combining the NFH-Series Powerex IGBT, still the industry’s fastest power IGBT, with a Zero Recovery® Schottky diode, Powerex is now offering split dual Si/SiC hybrid IGBT modules (QID1210005 and QID1210006) designed for use in high frequency applications: upwards of 30kHz for hard switching applications and 60 to 80 kHz for soft switching applications.
Each module consists of two IGBT transistors, with each transistor having a reverse-connected Zero Recovery free-wheel silicon carbide Schottky diode. A 30% decrease in switching losses result from this innovative design. All components and interconnects are isolated from the heat sinking baseplate, offering simplified system assembly and thermal management.
