Infineon adds discrete TRENCHSTOP

Infineon adds discrete TRENCHSTOP

The family comes in a TO-247-3-HCC package and offers a broad portfolio comprising 20 A, 30 A, 40 A, 50 A, 60 A and 70 A current ratings.

The devices can be used for replacing previous technologies like Infineon’s TRENCHSTOP 5 WR5 and HighSpeed 3 H3 as well as competitor technologies.

The family is optimized for power factor correction (PFC) for residential and commercial air conditioning systems as well as welding applications.

The TRENCHSTOP 5 WR6 switches provide very low conduction losses (30 A, 1,45 V at 25°C) as well as lowest switching losses (30 A, 1,55 mJ at 175°C). They feature a saturation voltage (V CE(sat)) of 1,45 V and a monolithically integrated diode with optimized forward voltage for the target applications.

The TO-247-3-HCC housing of the WR6 family increases the creepage and clearance distances thus improving the isolation voltage rating.

With this, the product family enables more reliable system designs that are resistant against contamination and condensation which e.g. often occur at AC outdoor units.
