RE: ISSTC Components

Original poster: "David Trimmell" <humanb-at-chaoticuniverse-dot-com> 

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it, BUT I asked if "anyone used the
CM300DY-24H IGBT bricks in a ISSTC?". I might append that question with
this: Are the rise and fall times of this brick (500 and 350 ns,
respectfully) to slow to use in a "standard" (Steve Ward design) ISSTC?
I also have interests in high power Staccato (1-30 PPS) type coils.
Currently I am doing just that, but only getting 25-26" Staccato sparks,
but depending on pulse width, I believe peak current is getting pretty
high. These are those wicked VTTC type sparks.

I'll third this.  All of my IGBTs i've blown have been killed most
due to voltage transients within the full bridge - not high current.
