What is the full form of mosfet ?
You all must have this kind of questions in your mind. Below article will solve this puzzle of yours. Just take a look.”
MOSFET vs IGBT – Here we are going to define difference between MOSFET and IGBT.
What is a MOSFET ?
1. MOSFET full form is “Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor”.
2. There are two types of MOSFET i.e., n-channel MOSFET and p-channel MOSFET. It can also be classified as Depletion MOSFET and Enhancement MOSFET.
What is a IGBT ?
1. IGBT full form is “Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor”.
2. There are two types of IGBT i.e., NPT-IGBT (i.e. non punch through) and PT-IGBT (i.e. punch through).
|1.||MOSFET stands for “Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor”.||IGBT stands for “Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor”.|
|2.||MOSFET Terminals are gate, source and drain.||IGBT Terminals are emitter, collector and gate.|
|3.||MOSFET gate/control signal occurs between the gate and source, and its switch terminals are the drain and source.||IGBT gate/control signal takes place between the gate and emitter, and its switch terminals are the drain and emitter.|
|4.||MOSFET has High Switching Frequency (> 100kHz)||IGBT has Low Switching Frequency (<20kHz)|
|5.||MOSFET has low power handling (<250W).||IGBTs has high power handling (> 250W).|
|6.||Low-voltage, low-current and high switching frequencies favour MOSFETs.||High-voltage, high-current and low switching frequencies, on the other hand, favour IGBTs.|
|7.||MOSFET used in SMPS (Hard switching greater than 200 KHz).||IGBT used in UPS (constant load, typically at low frequency).|
