Re: [TCML] For the SISG experienced out there
Very cool about the smaller cheaper IGBTS!!!
I used the most giant ones I could get since we just did not know...
But those giant IGBTs seem to run "too" cool 8-) I think smaller ones
running hotter and maybe with a fan will do great.
I paid $8 for them way back, but now they are like $30!! (and that is
before the new postal rates)! So getting the price of the IGBT thing
down is really important.
The IGBT's I'm using are not the original robust components Terry
Fritz found. I'm using the ones mentioned a few weeks ago (decent
specs but smaller die area which means heat is a concern). However, I
populated 6 boards at about $100, so if they fail, it's not like I'll
commit suicide. I'll just chalk it up to experience and continue on.
If they do work fine, well, we then have a low priced IGBT readily
