SAN JOSE, CA--Fairchild Semiconductor, a global supplier of high performance power and mobile semiconductor solutions, has been named a winner in the 11th annual Top-10 DC-DC Power Product Awards, hosted by Electronic Products China (EPC).
This is the seventh time Fairchild has received this award, after submitting its high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs for consideration by the panel of judges in the Best Application Award category. This category recognizes outstanding achievement in performance/cost and in understanding the market demands.
These high-voltage field-stop shorted-anode trench IGBTs, ranging from 1100-1400V, are optimized with intrinsic anti-parallel diodes for soft switching applications. With advancements over the typical non-punch-through (NPT) IGBT technology, Fairchild’s shorted-anode silicon technology offers a lower saturation voltage of more tha12% less than the same rating NPT-trench IGBT.
The Top-10 DC-DC Power Product Awards are designed to highlight significant advances in a technology or its application. The awards emphasize innovation and excellent price/performance, and cover all power products. Submissions are evaluated on three criteria: a significant advancement in a technology or its application, innovative design and a substantial achievement in price/performance. Additionally, there are five individual awards: Technology Breakthrough Award, Best Application Award, Optimized Development Award, Green Energy Award and the Independent Innovation Award.
