IGBTs for Automotive Implementation

IGBTs for Automotive Implementation

ROHM Semiconductor has launched insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) with low collector emitter saturation voltages that are designed for ignition coil and solenoid driver circuits. The RGPx series of transistors each feature high self clamped inductive switching energy, gate emitter protection diodes and gate emitter resistance. They have an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +175ºC and a storage temperature range of -55ºC to +175ºC.

These devices are housed in 3-pin TO-252 and TO263S packages and are qualified to AEC-Q101 for deployment in automotive applications.
