Renesas Electronics Introduces 8th-Generation IGBTs that Improve System Power Efficiency Through Industry-Leading Ultra-Low Loss Features

Samples of the 8th-generation IGBTs are available now. System manufacturers can select the product version that best matches the inverter circuit type and required output capacity. Pricing varies per product version, for example, samples of the RBN50H65T1GPQ-A0 650 V/50 A product version are priced at US$3.00 per unit. Mass production is scheduled to begin in September 2016 and is expected to reach a volume of 600,000 units per month by March 2017. (Pricing and availability are subject to change without notice.)

Refer to the separate sheet for the main specifications of the new 8th-generation IGBTs.

(Note 1) The trench gate configuration involves the formation of deep, narrow grooves (trenches) in the chip surface, followed by the formation of MOSFET gates on the sides of the trenches. This permits a higher cell density and contributes to lower on-resistance.

(Note 2) The saturation voltage (Vce (sat)) is the most important index of IGBT performance. It indicates the voltage between the collector and emitter in the operating state. The lower the value, the less the conduction loss when current is flowing to the element.

(Note 3) The performance index represents switching loss × Vce (sat).
