IXYS has expanded its range of rectifier modules for thyristor/thyristor, thyristor/diode and diode/diode phase-legs in its TO-240 outline with blocking voltages of 2200 volts.

The TO-240 package is an IXYS DCB based module with the highest performance in thermal behavior and power density. “With this latest expansion of the TO-240 package portfolio, IXYS is now offering rectifier products in an industry standard outline with blocking voltage ratings up to 2200V,” states Dr. Elmar Wisotzki, Director of Technology for IXYS Germany. “This best in class performance is achieved using IXYS’ unique technology of die design and an integrated assembly process that we have been using for more than two decades, thereby achieving rugged SCR and diode designs with highest field reliability.”

The MDNA and MCNA 2200 V modules complement IXYS’ product line that now offers a current range from 25 to 140 A at a case temperature of 100ºC with low forward voltage drop and high performance in the reverse blocking direction. This allows designers the freedom to build applications with the highest power densities. while maintaining IXYS’ well known quality performance. In addition, IXYS’ offerings for the corresponding thyristor module outline a maximum junction temperature of 140 degrees C and 150 degrees C for diode modules. The isolation voltage of 4800 volts meets industry requirements and underlines the outstanding capabilities and the high reliability of the IXYS’ TO-240 product line.
