This is a practical guide to the Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor, or IGBT. You’ll learn how to use it from a practical standpoint – without going into the physics of what it looks like on the inside. The IGBT is often presented as something complex and advanced. But when you strip away the physics explanation and get down to practice, putting it into a circuit is straightforward.
By the end of this guide, you will be able to use an IGBT and build your first simple circuit with it.
