IGBTs are automotive-qualified for small-motor drives

December 09, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
International Rectifier’s AUIRGP66524D0 and AUIRGF66524D0 are automotive-qualified 600V IGBTs which are intended for small auxiliary motor drive applications including air conditioning compressors for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Using IR's COOLiRIGBT platform and co-packaged with a soft recovery diode, the 24A devices feature low VCE(ON) to reduce power dissipation and maximum junction temperature of 175°C to achieve high power density.

Available in a standard length lead TO-247 and long lead TO-247 package, the devices offer a minimum 6 μsec short circuit rating at 150°C. A square reverse-bias safe operating area (SRBSOA) provides additional ruggedness. The devices are designed with a positive VCE(ON) temperature coefficient for simple paralleling for higher power applications.

IR’s automotive IGBTs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100% automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IR’s automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. Spice models are available on request.
