 Originary produced by MITSUBISHI / POWEREX, the manufacturing of the gate driver circuits like hybrid driver and
 DC-DC converters has been outsourced to IDC ISAHAYA (Isahaya Electronics Corporation) in year 2004.
 We provide to you all Isahaya parts related to IGBTs and  power electronics, like hybrid ICs and circuits for power
 and signal supply. But we cannot help with small signal and HF parts of Isahaya Electronics.

 Be aware, that for most of the parts listed below are circulating also Powerex data sheets.
Powerex Inc. has decided to  source the US market still by themselves under own brand name. So for many Isahaya parts you will find a datasheet of  Isahaya and of Powerex, and sometimes even an  old data sheet  of Mitsubishi. In fact, those are describing the same  parts all the time.

 We are offering the following integrated circuits. Many of them from stock - price on request.

The 7th generation Mitsubishi IGBTs have a higher gate charge [Qrr] compared to older series with the same power. That is why you should consider more power reserve in the peak gate current of your driver.

For the high current NX IGBTs there are two versions of the new VLA598 driver board:
VLA598-01R without collector clamping (active clamping), and
VLA598-11R with active clamping.

up to 60 kHz the drivers are tested up to 200 Amperes (600V and 1200V types)
