NEW: 650V TRENCHSTOP™ 5 L5: Low Saturation Voltage Optimized IGBT Setting a New Efficiency Benchmark for Polarity Switches at 50Hz


The TRENCHSTOP™ 5 family L5 with low saturation voltage VCE(sat) is optimized for polarity switches at switching frequencies of 50kHz-20kHz. The intrinsically low conduction losses of the 55µm TRENCHSTOP™ 5 thin wafer technology have been reduced further with additional optimization of the carrier profile.

Key features
  • Lowest saturation voltage V CE(sat) of only 1.05V
  • Low switching losses of 1.6mJ @ 25°C for 30A IGBT
  • High thermal stability of electrical parameters – only 2% drift with T j increase from 25°C to 175°C
  • Enhanced efficiency for 20% lower switching losses in TO-247 4pin Kelvin-Emitter package

TRENCHSTOP™ in TO-247PLUS Package – Maximum Flexibility in High Power 600V Designs TRENCHSTOP™ 5 in TO-247 4pin Package – Redefining new Levels of Switching Losses and Power Density
  •  100A and 120A IGBT co-packed with full rated diode in JEDEC standard TO-247PLUS
  • Increase of Power output or power density: One-to-one replacement of 75A IGBT with 120A device allows up to 40% power output increase keeping the same footprint and thermal conditions
  • Better thermal performance: 35% bigger thermal pad area of TO-247PLUS contributes to 10% -15% better heat dissipation allowing lower junction temperature T j
  • Higher reliability and longer lifetime
  •  Size and cost reduction
  • 20% reduction in total switching losses compared to TO-247 package using same technology
  • Extremely low emitter inductance loop· Sense pin for driver feedback· Benefit increase at high current conditions
  • IGBTs operates under lower junction temperature· Much less power dissipation under overcurrent conditions

Major Differences – TO-247 and TO-247PLUS

TO-247   TO-247PLUS
  • Screw hole vs. no screw hole
  • Maximum allowable chip area in single die ∼70mm² vs 120mm²
  • Current capability (DuoPAK) 600V: 75A vs 120A (+60%)
  • Increased creepage by 52% to 4.25mm
  • Bond wire limit increased from 80A to 160A
  • Bigger backside active thermal pad area due to missing hole 140mm² vs 190mm²
    • 20% lower thermal resistance R th (jh)
    • 10%-15% better heat dissipation
