IGBT modules enable high power density

Infineon Technologies AG has launched the new TRENCHSTOP 1700-V IGBT7 chip in the standard EconoDUAL 3 industrial module package. With the new IGBT7 chip technology, the EconoDUAL 3 claims leading current of 900 A and 750 A and enables an improved power range for inverters. These new IGBT modules target a range of applications including wind turbines, motor drives, and static VAR generators (SVG).

IGBT modules enable high power densityCompared to modules with the previous IGBT4 chipset, the new FF900R17ME7_B11, with the TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 chip, enables up to 40 percent higher inverter output current in the same package size, said Infineon. In addition, the 1700-V IGBT7 modules feature significantly lower static and dynamic losses while addressing applications with static losses in diode chips, added the company.

Other features include enhanced dv/dt controllability, improved diode softness, and an improved FIT rate, which is an an important parameter when working with high DC link Voltage, said Infineon.

These new power modules, with an integrated temperature sensor, offer a maximum overload junction temperature of 175°C. They are qualified for industrial applications according to relevant tests of IEC 60747, 60749, and 60068.

In addition to the 1700-V EconoDUAL 3 with 900 A, a 750-A module with a larger diode also has been added to the portfolio. The FF900R17ME7_B11 (900 A), FF750R17ME7D_B11 (750 A), and FF225R17ME7_B11 (225 A) can be ordered now. The roll-out for 300-A to 750-A modules will follow at the end of 2022.

Infineon will showcase the new 1700-V 900-A and 750-A EconoDUAL3 modules with the TRENCHSTOP IGBT7 chip in a presentation during PCIM 2022, May 10-12. Infineon is exhibiting in booth #412 in Hall 7.
