Product Brief Reverse Conducting RC-DA IGBT according to AEC-Q Standard High Intensity Discharge Lighting Applications (HID) Key Features The RC-DA technology is based on the established Trench Field Stop IGBT technology. The reverse conducting IGBT chip has a monolithically integrated freewheeling diode which leads to a substantial Si area saving. Operating range of DC to 5kHz Reverse conducting IGBT construction Short circuit capability of 5µs Maximum junction temperature 175°C Very tight parameter distribution Best in class current versus package size performance Smooth switching performance leading to low EMI levels Key Benefits Excellent cost/performance for hard switching applications Outstanding temperature stability Very good EMI behavior An automotive application field of RC-DA devices is High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp where only small space is available resulting in the usage of small packages like DPAKs. These HID lamps have two important issues, namely a greater starting voltage and the presence of acoustic resonance. The first issue is resolved by using a sort of starting aid, called igniters, which ignite the lamp. In the starting phase the devices are stressed by several hundred volt which makes it necessary to use devices with a high blocking voltage. In order to avoid acoustic resonance and flickering, the designer must avoid the combination of power fluctuation and operating frequency. A typical switching frequency used in this application is 400Hz. Power fluctuation can be avoided by using square wave alternate current techniques. This current control can be achieved by using a full bridge that converts the DC current coming from a DC/DC converter into a AC current for the lamp. www.infineon.com/discrete-automotive-igbt Up to 60% space saving on the PCB Higher reliability due to monolithically integrated IGBT and diode due to less thermal cycling during switching Applications HID Further Applications –– Piezo Injection –– Pumps –– Small Drives Product Brief Reverse Conducting RC-DA IGBT according to AEC-Q Standard High Intensity Discharge Lighting Applications (HID) Due to the low switching frequency for HID the conduction losses dominate the total power losses. With the RC-DA technology a VCE(sat) reduction of 20% compared to former technologies was achieved.
