“With this new technology, the EconoDual 3 chip provides 900A of current and allows an improved power range for inverters,” according to the company. “Compared to the modules with the previous IGBT4 chipset, the FF900R17ME7_B11 with the IGBT7 chip allows up to 40% higher inverter output current in the same package size.”

In addition to the 900A part, there will be a 750A module with a larger diode (FF750R17ME7D_B11) and a 225A FF225R17ME7_B11 225.

For the new modules, the company also claims improved dv / dt controllability, improved diode softness and improvements in FIT speed caused by cosmic rays, the latter “an important parameter when working with high voltage DC connection”.

The maximum temperature of the reloading unit is 175 ° C.

The parts focus on applications, including wind, propulsion and static VAR generators. Modules with rated currents between 300A and 750A should go on sale at the end of 2022.

During PCIM 2022, Infineon engineer Alexei Gurvich will present a report on the IGBT7 modules (May 10, 14:00 CEST in the Munich 2 conference hall, or visit the company at booth 412 in hall 7).
