GT20N135SRA features a collector-emitter saturation voltage of 1.75V and a diode forward voltage of 1.8V, approximately 10% and 21% lower, respectively, than for the current product. Both the IGBT and diode have improved conduction loss characteristics at high temperature (TC=100℃), and the new IGBT can help reduce equipment power consumption. It also features a junction-to-case thermal resistance of 0.48℃/W (max), about 26% lower than that of the current product, allowing easier thermal design.
The new IGBT suppresses short circuit current that flows through the resonance capacitor when equipment is switched on. Its circuit current peak value is 129A, about a 31% reduction from the current product. As its safe operating area is widened, it makes equipment design easier compared to the current product.
Home appliances (such as tabletop IH cookers, IH rice cookers and microwave ovens) that use voltage resonance circuits
• Low conduction loss:
VCE(sat)=1.6V(typ.) (@IC=20A, VGE=15V, Ta=25℃)
VF=1.75V (typ.) (@IF=20A, VGE=0V, Ta=25℃)
• Low junction-to-case thermal resistance: Rth(j-C)=0.48℃/W (max)
• Suppresses short circuit current that flows through the resonance capacitor when equipment is switched on.
• Wide safe operating area
(Unless otherwise specified, @Ta=25 °C)
