Fort Worth, Texas – TTI, Inc. a leading specialty distributor of electronic components, has availability of Rohm Semiconductor’s class-leading low conduction loss RGS series of IGBTs. The automotive-grade 1200V-rated IGBTs are ideal for inverters used in electronic compressors and for switching circuits used in positive temperature coefficient (PTC) heaters. The RGS series represents ROHM’s large lineup of AEC-Q101-compliant IGBTs in both 1200V-rated and 650V-rated devices. The class-leading low conduction loss contributes to reducing size and to improving efficiency of applications including server power supplies, UPS systems, solar power inverters, and EV charging stations requiring high efficiency.
Increasing the number of electric vehicles also advances the need for electric compressors often driven with IGBT’s. Especially in electric vehicles, the power consumption of the compressor and heater affects the driving range, and, therefore, improved efficiency is desirable. Additionally, higher voltage batteries (800V) require power devices featuring low loss and higher withstand voltages, which increases the demand for both 650V-rated and 1200V-rated IGBTs. For more applications see Rohm RGS IGBT’s at TTI.
