What is RBSOA?

RBSOA is an abbreviation of Reverse Bias Safety Operating Area. The data sheet contains a characteristic graph describing double the rated voltage and rated current under the condition of maximum continuous operation temperature Tj(op). It illustrates a range of VCE and IC where safe operation is maintained when IGBT is turning off. The operation can be repeated within the RBSOA range.
