Toshiba release a 1350V/40A IGBT targeting high-speed inverters
Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced its first high-speed, integrated IGBT to feature a voltage rating up to 1350V. Designed for voltage resonator inverter switching, the new device will address growing demands for IGBTs with higher voltage withstand capabilities.
The N-channel ‘enhancement mode’ GT40RR21 saves space and component count by combining an IGBT and a reverse recovery freewheeling diode into a single, compact monolithic device. Suitable for high-temperature operation, target applications for the IGBT include induction heating and induction cooking appliances.
