A range of 13 new products has been added by Renesas Electronics to its 7th generation Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) line-up. The new IGBTs include the RJH/RJP65S series for 650V and RJP1CS series for 1250V.

The new IGBTs are power semiconductor devices used in systems that convert DC into AC power, and are designed for applications that handle high voltages and large currents, such as power conditioners (power converters) for solar power generators and industrial motors.

The 7th-generation technology, that is based on enhanced thin wafer process, sets a low losses trade-off between conduction, switching losses and robustness capability to withstand short ­circuit conditions.
