Intelligent power module combines three-phase gate driver and IGBTs
Infineon has integrated the iMotion motion control engine (MCE) with a three-phase gate driver and 600V/2.0A or 600V/4.0A IGBTs in a compact DSO-22 package in the latest intelligent power module (IPM), the iMotion IMI110.
The IMI110 series offers improved creepage and clearance. The IPMs are also rugged and qualified according to HV-H3TRB. The bill of materials is reduced with the inclusion of sensorless single-shunt operation, integrated bootstrap diodes and single-layer PCB design contribute to a reduced bill of materials. IMI110 devices are pre-certified for applications requiring functional safety to UL/IEC 60730 (Class B) standard. They also offer a full set of protection features in hardware and software.
The integrated motor controller series is suitable for motors in small and large household appliances as well as fans and pumps with typically 70W output power. Depending on the system design, even higher outputs can be achieved, said Infineon.
The MCE implements efficient field-oriented control in sensorless motor inverters. The ready-to-use MCE comes with a code-free motor control and integrated scripting. The MCE has the Solution Designer software tool for easy configuration and tuning and is claimed to simplify the development of highly integrated, function-optimised motor control and accelerate time to market. Two new control boards have been added to the iMotion modular application design kit for rapid prototyping of a customer specific iMotion IPM.
The iMotion IMI110 series can be ordered now in the 600 V/2 A (IMI111T-026H) variant. The 600 V/4 A (IMI111T-046H) variant will be available early in the second quarter 2023.
Infineon will showcase the new iMotion IMI110 series at embedded world 2023 (14 to 16 March) in Nuremberg, Germany, Hall 4A-138.
