Automotive IGBT RC-DA

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.

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.

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.

In comparison to the competition the product family shows a significant improvement in thermal performance. Due to the better
thermal resistance the operating junction temperature gets reduced and this results in:
„„ Higher reliability over lifetime
„„ Lower cooling efforts
„„ System cost reduction
