High Performance DT-Triac™ Technology Platform with 1600V/1800V Discretes and Modules

IXYS Corporation announced the expansion of the “Dual Thyristor –Triac” technology platform (DT-Triac™) for 1600V up to 1800V.

The DT-Triac™ technology distinguishes itself as a high performance solution in Triac related applications with superior ruggedness and better dV/dt and di/dt ratings when compared to state of the art triacs. The DT-Triac products use IXYS’ advanced planar thyristors that extend the current and voltage ratings of Triacs beyond the limitations of current triac technology. 

Presently IXYS has offered a wide portfolio of 1200V DT-Triac™ in several standard housings including the established ISOPLUS technology for in-package isolation. With these new products the range is extended to 1600V Triacs.

The first products are two 60 Amp discrete devices in the TO-247 case style, the CMA60MT1600NHB with the standard TO-247 case and the CMA60MT1600NHR providing the same outline and pin compatibility but with a ceramic backside (DCB) for a high performance isolation. Other current classes are in planning.

On the module side IXYS provides two power classes in two different packages. MCMA650MT1800NKD is a high reliable 1800V Triac in the common housing Y1 (50 mm).
Next to this powerful AC-Controller, IXYS shows a special 700A phase-leg in its new ComPack package outline. The MCMA700P1600NCA connected in an anti-parallel mode creates a 1600A Power-Triac that combines all the advantages for a Triac application with the capability and high performance of singles thyristors in this current class.
