Default Whats up with IXYS IXTP01N100D?

What is up with the restrictions on this part?

Check out the attachment. There is apparently some kind of restriction on the distribution in (The Netherlands) or I suppose Europe.

This pisses me off.

They probably have an exclusive contract with some other distributor for Europe region.

Aaah ok...that sucks...Digikey is also not allowed to distribute it in Europe. So I'll have to do a couple of searches to see who is allowed. Farnell, RS-components and Conrad don't seem to carry it or their search function sucks

Thanks for the reply.

KWx is listed on the IXYS site as your distributor

I bought mine from Arrow in the US, Mouser also lists them

my local rep is however useless - I wanted more info and to buy direct small qty of the 2.5 KV parts which isn't yet stocked at distributors


a interesting problem is that the packaging doesn't meet creepage distances for anywhere near the device V ratings - for diy I can hand coat with "corona dope" or rtv silicone but production probably means going to conformal coating

you may be interested in my crude spice model for the part here:

Thanks jcx. Bummer. These guys charge € 16,00 for orders below 250 euro's. And I don't get the idea they do business with diy folk. But I'll try to find out.

You could try contacting IXYS directly and asking for engineering samples. I have had some success with other manufacturers. It does mean bending the truth a bit and pretending you may order a few thousand but hey who cares if it gets the parts you need.

I would have thought that at some point in the future Mouser will stock them in their depot in Germany if its any consolation

Anyway they look rather interesting and I have the same trouble getting IXYS and Supertex stuff here. You could also try a local inverter drive repair house that stocks IXYS IGBTs etc. They tend to be able to get parts from the manufacturer.

Cheers Matt.

I've run into that "creepage distance not large enough for device rating" problem before. I'd think that alone would keep it out of Europe.
