iMOTION Modular Application Design Kit with Two Power Boards
Infineon Technologies AG adds two power boards to the family of iMOTION™ Modular Application Design Kits (MADK)
Infineon Technologies AG adds two power boards to the family of iMOTION™ Modular Application Design Kits (MADK). The two half bridge boards complement the compact and flexible evaluation system providing a scalable design platform for 3-phase motor drives in the range from 20 W to 300 W. The MADK aims at applications in the field of industrial and home appliance, e.g. pumps, fans, air conditioners and major home appliances. The new power boards additionally address battery powered applications. Using the kit, a functional motor system will be running in less than one hour, enabling fast time to market.
The power boards are based on the µIPM™ from Infineon and come in power ratings of 100 V/20 A and 40 V/6 A. They feature an overcurrent/under-voltage lockout protection with fault output and an onboard power supply of 15 V and 3.3 V, respectively. Since no heat sinks are required, developers can optimize the copper area of the PCB for thermal performance. In combination with an XMC1302 or IRMCK099 control card, designers only need a few steps to run the motor: plug the cards into the PC, motor and grid equivallent voltage supply and download, install and set the parameters of the software.
The Field Oriented Control (FOC) software supports sensor-less motor control based on the XMC1302 microcontroller. The XMC1302 control card includes a debugger based on Segger J-Link technology. The IRMCK099 based control card with debug MCE-tool 2.0 features the patented and field proven motor control engine (MCE) from former International Rectifier.
Infineon Technologies AG is a world leader in semiconductor solutions that make life easier, safer and greener. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. In the 2019 fiscal year (ending 30 September), the Company reported sales of €8.0 billion with about 41,400 employees worldwide. Infineon is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and in the USA on the over-the-counter market OTCQX International Premier.
