THE G4PC40W IS INSULATED GATE BIPOLAR TRANSISTOR. IGBT stands for Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor. It is a type of power semiconductor device that combines the advantages of bipolar transistors (high voltage and current handling capability) and field-effect transistors (fast switching and low on-state resistance).

They are also used in applications where high voltage and high current are required, such as in welding equipment and induction heating.

An IGBT consists of a P-N-P-N structure with an insulated gate, which is used to control the flow of current between the emitter and collector terminals. When a positive voltage is applied to the gate terminal, it creates a conducting channel between the emitter and collector, allowing current to flow.

• Lower switching losses allow more cost-effective operation than power MOSFETs up to 150 kHz (“hard switched” mode)

• Of particular benefit to single-ended converters and boost PFC topologies 150W and higher

• Low conduction losses and minimal minority-carrier recombination make these an excellent option for resonant mode switching as well (up to >>300 kHz) TO-247AC
