Re: IGBT
@Samicksha:

  You are right, the ITRS roadmap suggests that the IGBT is one of the technology that will drive us forward and new improvements will open up space for new applications.  IGBT's are in use in automotive applications already and further improving the realibility will help the cause.  I don't know to what extent the new generation IGBT will help.

Motor Control
It could be expected that new generation IGBT could easily control the motor because of small EPI gap on condition of motor turn on-off transition period time, based on IGBT electric characteristics review.

Re: IGBT
When i see IGBT being at continious growth and improvement path, the only question i ask is can we now reliably use IGBT for electric vehicles and hybrid cars.

Re: IGBT
@fasmicro:  With the applications changing, raning from high voltage to high frequency, low power low leakage the challenges on the existing technology is huge.  As you pointed, changing the process tech is the way forward, but the cost of R&D is so much that it can hit a business.

Re: IGBT
I have always failed to see competitive position from the redesign of transistor than from the business model which drives the products. Yet, Fairchild and others still think changing transistors offer a new opportunity. They are right but Wall Street may not always care.

The links at the bottom are very helpful.

@amrutah, true. I really liked "The links at the bottom are very helpful" article. I would like to download those spice models not sure if its freely accessible to all.

IGBT
In summary, the new device can make the FS IGBT more useful for designs of soft-switching applications that are not requiring high performance anti-parallel diode.

I believeboth FRD and TGBT functions are combined into single chip, still claim is that the new device performs better than the previous devices, but is it size which will increase.

Small-power motor drives such as fan motors, dishwashers, circulation pumps, and major applications are constrained by challenging form-factors and lower standby current.
Reverse polarity is a dangerous electrical condition that can be difficult to prevent once a system leaves the factory, so adding circuitry that protects against its effects is an important part of improving system reliability. This article looks at the many methods for protection and weighs their tradeoffs.
The resistor-capacitor-diode (RCD) snubber, the key element of a Flyback converter, requires solid calculation and experiment verification to figure out the optimum parameters.
The Power Switches are the heart of every power converter. Their operation will directly determine the product's reliability and efficiency.
