Fast IGBT based on TRENCHSTOP™5 technology for industrial applications








Historically, fast IGBTs have been proposed as the replacement of conventional or Superjunction MOSFETs due to higher power density. However, because of technology limitations, there are only limited areas where IGBTs can reach both commercial and technical advantages.

The new TRENCHSTOPTM5 IGBT overcomes many of those technical limitations, providing an interesting solution for high speed applications to be found in applications like solar, UPS, and welding.

This application note was designed to provide engineers information and advice on how to design-in the new TRENCHSTOPTM5 IGBT into standard IGBT applications.

After providing an introduction of the new technology, measurements on bipolar H4 solar inverters are provided with more technical details.
