The H series 1200 V IGBTs have the option of an integrated anti-parallel diode for hard-switching circuits and minimizing energy losses in circuits with a freewheel diode.

The IGBTs have a latch-up-free operation and a short-circuit time of 5┬Ás (at 150 C starting junction temperature). The extended maximum operating junction temperature of 175 C helps enhance service lifetime and simplify system cooling.

Other features include EMI (electromagnetic interference) characteristics thanks to a waveform during switching events. A positive temperature coefficient of Vce(sat), with close distribution of parameters from device to device, allows safer parallel operation in high-power applications.
