Discrete and Bare Die IGBTs for Hybrid and All-Electric VehiclesJuly 26, 2016 by Fairchild Semiconductor
Fairchild expanding its growing portfolio of automotive-grade semiconductor solutions for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles
Fairchild expanding its growing portfolio of automotive-grade semiconductor solutions for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and electric vehicles (EV) with its new discrete and bare die IGBTs and diodes. These IGBTs and diodes are ideal for traction inverters, a core component of all HEVs, PHEVs and EVs that convert the batteries’ electricity from direct current into the three-phase alternating current required by the vehicles’ drive motors.
All of these new discrete and bare die IGBTs and diodes use advanced third generation Field Stop Trench IGBT technology and a soft fast recovery diode qualified to automotive-grade standards and have additional features and options.
