Firm intends to develop its market share within the international photo voltaic power market with the discharge of this new IGBT
Magnachip Semiconductor Company (“Magnachip”) (NYSE: MX) introduced at the moment that the corporate has unveiled a brand new 650V insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) for photo voltaic inverters.
As environmental impacts from local weather change have gotten extra extreme, using renewable power like solar energy continues to broaden globally to scale back carbon emissions. Omdia, a worldwide market analysis agency, estimates that the worldwide marketplace for IGBTs within the renewable power sector will develop 15% yearly from 2022 to 2025. In March 2022, Magnachip developed a brand new 650V IGBT constructed with superior “discipline cease trench know-how” for quick switching velocity and excessive breakdown voltages and the corporate will start mass manufacturing of it this month.
The present density of this new 650V IGBT was improved by 30% in comparison with the prior era by adopting the newest know-how. This IGBT can also be designed to supply a minimal short-circuit face up to time of 5µs and it’s optimized for parallel switching due to its constructive temperature coefficient. The parallel switching of this IGBT will enhance the load present and thus the utmost output energy.
As well as, the 650V IGBT options anti-parallel diodes for quick switching and low switching loss, whereas guaranteeing a most working junction temperature of 175°C. Based mostly on requirements issued by the Joint Electron Gadget Engineering Council (JEDEC), this new IGBT might be broadly used for functions requiring strict energy stage and excessive effectivity, akin to photo voltaic enhance inverters and converters, uninterruptible energy provides and common energy inverters.
“Magnachip’s first IGBT was launched in 2013, and since then, we’ve been dedicated to creating high-efficiency merchandise for quite a lot of markets, whereas strengthening our presence around the globe,” stated YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip. “With this new product, we’re increasing our efforts to ship high-performance merchandise for the eco-friendly renewable power market.”
