1800A/3.3kV IGBT module with the highest current rating was developed. Advanced Trench HiGT structure was used to achieve low loss characteristics. Module electrical and thermal characteristic were optimized in order to reduce thermal resistance and parasitic inductance. The current ratings of new IGBT module can be increased by 20% from the conventional product type.
