IGBT stands for insulated-gate bipolar transistor. It is a bipolar transistor with an insulated gate terminal. The IGBT combines, in a single device, a control input with a MOS structure and a bipolar power transistor that acts as an output switch. IGBTs are suitable for high-voltage, high-current applications. They are designed to drive high-power applications with a low-power input.
Thus, typical applications of IGBTs include induction cooktops.
