Hi!

There is an equivalent of IKW40N60H3 ?

In all distributors is out of stock..

 

tnx

Dear Alberto,

unfortunately, the answer always depends a bit on your specific case.

I assume that you are looking for an IGBT with short circuit ruggedness. So please have a look at the TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 family. The part number is

  • IKW**N65ET7 (highly controllable switching speed, low Vcesat)

If you do not really have short circuit ruggedness requirements you could also consider the TRENCHSTOP™ 5 family, in particular the part numbers

  • IKW**N65H5 - optimized for lowest switching losses
    (performance optimization, general purpose)
  • IKW**N65ES5 - still quite fast but with lower Vcesat
    (performance optimization, general purpose)
  • IKW**N65WR5 - still quite fast but with lower Vcesat, reverse conducting
    (cost/performance optimization for boost converters or circuits operated in soft switching mode)
  • IKWH**N65WR6 - still quite fast but with lower Vcesat, reverse conducting
    (cost/performance optimization for boost converters or circuits operated in soft switching mode)

Note that I put a double-asterisk instead of a specific current rating because the four devices listed above are more recent IGBT technologies than the IKW40N60H3. Since they might allow a drastic reduction of both conduction and switching losses you could potentially consider to use a 30A device instead of a 40A device.

Hope that helps!
Best regards,
Klaus

Hi,

  Thank you for posting on the Infineon community. 

 

The following discrete IGBTs can be used as an alternative to IKW40N60H3,

1) IKW75N60H3

2) IKW60N60H3

Below table compares the specs of all 3 IGBTs,

Product OPN Product Status Package Voltage Class max [V] Switching Frequency min [kHz] Switching Frequency max [kHz] IC @  25° max [A] IC @  100° max [A] ICpuls max [A] Type Technology Qualification Ptot max [W]
IKW40N60H3 IKW40N60H3FKSA1 active and preferred TO-247-3 600 20 100 80 40 160 IGBT + Diode IGBT HighSpeed 3 Industrial 306
IKW75N60H3 IKW75N60H3FKSA1 active and preferred TO-247-3 600 20 100 80 75 225 IGBT + Diode IGBT HighSpeed 3 Industrial 428
IKW60N60H3 IKW60N60H3FKSA1 active and preferred TO-247-3 600 20 100 80 60 180 IGBT + Diode IGBT HighSpeed 3 Industrial 416
