STMicro’s 650V High-Frequency IGBTs Suit Advanced Power Apps

May 7, 2019 Alix Paultre

STMicroelectronics’ HB2 650V IGBT series delivers efficiency and performance gains for medium- and high-speed applications such as PFC converters, welders, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and solar inverters, leveraging ST’s latest Trench Field Stop (TFS) technology. The series also includes automotive-eligible devices meeting AEC-Q101 Rev. D.

Joining the STPOWER portfolio, the HB2 series has a VCEsat of 1.55V, with enhanced dynamic behavior due to reduced gate charge, enabling fast switching at a low gate current. The HB2 series IGBTs can be specified with either a full-rated or half-rated diode, or a protection diode to prevent accidental reverse bias.

The 40A STGWA40HP65FB2, is available now in the TO-247 long-lead package.
