What is an IGBT?

An IGBT, or insulated gate bipolar transistor, is a solid state device (with no moving parts). It is a switch that is used in order to allow power flow in the On state and to stop power flow when it is in the Off state. An IGBT works by applying voltage to a semiconductor component, therefore changing its properties to block or create an electrical path.

Types of IGBTs

There are many different kinds of IGBTs. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Turn-on Delay Time, Turn-off Delay Time, Collector Current @ 25C, Collector Current @ 100C, Packaging Type and Maximum CE Voltage. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common values for Maximum CE Voltage are 600 V and 1200 V. We also carry IGBTs with Maximum CE Voltage as high as 3300 V. Collector Current @ 100C can be between 3 A and 1200 A, with 20 A, 30 A and 40 A being the most common values.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as Fairchild, International Rectifier, IXYS and STMicroelectronics, among other manufacturers. You can easily refine your IGBT product search results by clicking your preferred IGBT brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for IGBTs:

IGBTs are used in high power applications such as:

  • Appliance motor drives
  • Electric vehicle motor drives
  • Power factor correction converters
  • Uninterruptible power supplies
  • Solar inverters
  • High frequency welders
  • Inductive heating cookers

Choosing the Right IGBT:

When you are looking for the right IGBTs, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Maximum CE Voltage (1.8 V, 600 V, 1200 V,…), Collector Current @ 100C (3 A, 30 A, 40 A,…) and Turn-on Delay Time (between 6 ns and 125 µs) to name a few. You will be able to find the right high voltage IGBT, IGBT inverter, IGBT gate driver or high power IGBT for your electronic circuits or insulated gate bipolar transistor circuit applications.

IGBTs in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of IGBTs that you require is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our IGBT products in tube or other quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
