This paper describes new results of I2t capability study for IGBT modules used for xEV power train applications. Combination matrix of RC-IGBT or the conventional FWD and leadframe or bondwires were investigated, and 2.4 times higher performance was obtained in combination of RC-IGBT and leadframe compared with that of FWD and bondwires.
