Infineon to Showcase Array of Power Management Solutions at APEC

February 28, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Infineon will showcase its latest power management solutions at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) 2019, March 17-21, in Anaheim, California, at booth #711.

The company invites APEC attendees to discover its latest power electronics innovations that make life easier, safer and greener in applications that range from renewable energy, home appliances, and industrial applications to efficient power conversion for consumer applications, high-performance servers, and telecom using its CoolGaN™ technology.

Infineon says its solutions set the benchmark in energy efficiency and power density in electronic systems. With its solutions, customers gain innovation and cost performance for their applications including battery-powered devices, dc-dc computing, servers, industrial automation, industrial welding, motor controls and drives, lighting, SMPS, solar, wireless power, and uninterruptable power supply solutions.

Digital DC-DC Power Solutions

Infineon Technologies says it offers highest density end-to-end power management solutions including integrated power stages, multi-phase digital controllers, and integrated POL & PMIC converters for next-generation SOCs and FPGAs.

SiC Devices

SiC wafer

Silicon Carbide (SiC) devices belong to the so-called wide-bandgap semiconductor group, which offers several performance advantages for high voltage power semiconductors when compared to commonly used silicon (Si). In particular, a much higher breakdown field strength and thermal conductivity of SiC allow the creation of devices which far outperform the corresponding Si alternatives, and they enable the achievement of otherwise unattainable efficiency levels.

Infineon takes advantage of these SiC performance benefits with its CoolSiC™ semiconductor solutions.  The company's CoolSiC combines SiC technology with its extensive system understanding, best-in-class packaging, and manufacturing excellence. The company says that these CoolSiC solutions enable the development of radical new product designs with best system cost-performance ratio.

Laptop Adapter Solutions

Slimmer and sleeker laptop chargers from Infineon match consumer desires. The company boasts reliable and top-quality high-voltage and low-voltage MOSFETs, and offers and extensive portfolio of controller ICs. Its products and expertise in laptop adapters reportedly draw on decades of collaboration with laptop manufacturers.

Wireless Charging

A broad selection of components for wireless charging helps overcome design challenges for resonant and inductive solutions. As a member of the Wireless Power Consortium and the AirFuel Alliance, Infineon says it is dedicated to actively shaping the trends of tomorrow.

Gallium Nitride

GaN enables higher power density and high-frequency switching, and it can deliver the highest efficiency through novel topologies such as the totem pole PFC.

EiceDRIVER™ 1EDN Gate Driver for MOSFETs

Rugged, cool, and fast, single-channel low-side 4A/8A gate driver ICs provide the critical link between control ICs and powerful MOSFET and GaN switching devices. These gate driver ICs offer high system-level efficiencies, excellent power density, and consistent system robustness.

High Power Solutions

Whatever the application ranging from automation, UPS, CAV, motor control and traction to renewables and home appliances, Infineon offers best-fit solutions. In addition to meeting function requirements, the company's high-power solutions match demands for efficiency, reliability, size, weight, and cost.

Motor and Control Drives

Infineon points out that companies are looking to find new ways to increase energy efficiency, mobility, and security, in all motor control applications. At the same time, the software's increasingly critical function in systems directly contributes to the complexity and increases costs.

Also, according to the company, at low or high voltage, its semiconductors for motor control and drives provide the right innovative solutions in reliable German-engineered quality. With excellent figures of merit and cutting-edge software tools to save you time and money, the price point of the company's motor controls and drives fits your budget, Infineon noted.

Power Modules

As a supplier of IGBTs, Infineon offers a comprehensive portfolio of power modules for applications including industrial automation, solar and wind energy, construction, commercial and agricultural vehicles (CAV), traction, and UPS.

Smart Lighting

Infineon delivers innovative, high-performance smart lighting solutions boasting best-in-class technologies that can be used in a wide range of lighting applications.
