IGBT for (CDI/inductive) ignition applications with around 400V self-clamping feature, with reasonable (above 330mJ at room temperature) avalanche energy durability.
Logic level gate drive, nice for GenBoard v3.x
Usually HGTP14N40F3VL or IRGB14L40C (14A continuous) or ISL9V3040P3 .
A few IGBTs, with GenBoard v3.x can compete with most DIS racing ignition kits (but provides much more), the dwell can be configured to match the coil and application.
Negotiate price if you need many.
- Insulatorsheet necessary between case and TO220 device (IGBT or FET)
- For driving fuelpump (around 10A if driven directly, not via a relay) and other low-voltage devices we usually choose the FET (lower dissipation) not IGBT
- under 1A (eg. small lights) small NPN (like 2N2222) or the stepperdriver
- under 350mA (most relays) the TPIC6A259 (that has 8 channels).
