Motor Control ICs
Solutions for motor control systems in automotive, consumer and industrial applications
Automotive Embedded Power ICs (System-on-Chip)
Infineon Embedded Power ICs are specifically designed to enable mechatronic motor control solutions for a range of motor control applications, where a small package form factor and a minimum number of external components are essential, including but not limited to: window lift, sunroof, wiper, fuel pump, HVAC fans, engine cooling fan, water pumps.
Motor System ICs
Infineon’s Motor System IC family offers high integration and high performance with optimized system cost for DC and BLDC motor control applications. It combines half-bridge gate drivers with power and communication supply. The family features multi MOSFET driver in brushed DC 2x or 4x half bridges pre-driver as well as a 3-Phase BLDC pre-driver configuration. The IC is complemented with a low-dropout voltage regulator of up to 250mA, CAN FD (5 Mbit/s) and LIN transceiver as well as well as high-side switches (7Ω typ.), wake inputs and supervision features.
iMOTION™ products target industrial as well as consumer motor control applications.
With the continuous push towards higher energy efficiency the use of variable speed drives in industrial as well as consumer markets is growing continuously. In parallel the product life cycles are getting shorter by each generation asking for ways to easily and rapidly integrate the required control algorithms.
iMOTION™ products are offered in several integration levels on both hardware as well as software. The hardware integration ranges from stand-alone motor controllers up to fully integrated inverters in the SmartIPMs. And in terms of software Infineon is offering full turnkey solutions as well as freely programmable modules. Using the turnkey products that are based on the patented and field proven motor control engine (MCE) and assisted by powerful tools like MCEwizard and MCEdesigner the implementation of a variable speed drive is reduced to configuring the respective motor.
