An Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor, IGBT, is a device that switches power on and off between a collector and emitter by controlling the voltage between the gate and emitter in the same way as MOSFET. Toshiba IGBT can be used in a wide range of applications, from home appliances to infrastructure equipment like trains. Our discrete IGBT are used in IH cooking equipment, rice cookers, kitchen microwaves, refrigerators, washing machines, air-conditioners and other household equipment. The collector- emitter voltage of discrete IGBTs covers from 300 to 800V, with a DC current from 5 to 80A. Discrete IGBTs are more suitable for controlling high voltage and current than silicon MOSFETs.
