In this paper, we present a newly developed 62Pak with optimized IGBT and diode performance for high temperature operations. The latest generation of ABB’s enhanced planar 1700V IGBT (SPT++) has been improved by introducing a new termination concept and silicon design. Diode leakage current at 175deg C has been significantly reduced by introducing the field shielded anode concept while still keeping the same electrical characteristics of the previous soft SPT+ diode platform. All mentioned features enable the development of a 1700V 62Pak module rated at 300A and operating at -40deg C to 175deg C junction temperature range with low losses and high Safe Operating Area (SOA).
