New Product Introduction


Infineon Technologies’ iMOTION Modular Application Design Kit (MADK) is a modular and scalable evaluation platform for testing different Infineon products targeting 3-phase PMSM/BLDC motor drives. The iMOTION™ MADK platform offers users system flexibility and scalability at multiple levels:

  • Various controller options – iMOTION motor controller ICs or XMC1302 ARM® Cortex®-M0 MCU
  • Inverter boards with maximum power ranging between 20W and 2kW
  • Inverters with or without active PFC control
  • Boost or totem pole PFC options
  • Power stage maximum voltages ranging between 40V and 1200V
  • Discrete or IPM-based power stages

The iMOTION MADK modular approach with standardized interfaces between different controller and power boards allows users to mix and match different control and power stage options for maximum flexibility and scalability during the evaluation and development phase at an affordable cost. This flexibility and scalability on the hardware level is complemented by state-of-the-art motor control algorithms delivered for both control board options:

  • iMOTION ICs on control boards are pre-programmed with ready-to-use sensorless FOC motor control firmware which can be parametrized and tuned using iMOTION PC tools
  • XMC1302 control board is delivered with matching FOC motor control library, supported by μC Probe-based GUI

Infineon will keep expanding the iMOTION MADK platform with new control and power board options for inverterized BLDC motor control, to enable users to test the latest Infineon products in their familiar evaluation environment.

  • Several control boards with iMOTION controllers using field-proven Motion Control Engine (MCE) to fit different use cases:
    • With or without additional MCU core for system control
    • With or without active PFC control
  • XMC1302 MCU control board is supported by:
    • μC Probe-based GUI for motor parametrization and tuning
    • FOC motor control library
    • Free-of-charge DAVE™ IDE and other 3rd party ARM® IDEs
  • A growing number of inverter boards offering flexibility and scalability:
    • Different CIPOS™ IPMs with various packages, switching elements (IGBT or FET), and power ratings
    • Power stages based on discrete components (IGBT/FETs + gate drivers)
    • Power stages without PFC, with boost PFC and with totem pole PFC options



1) External MCETOOLV2 debugger (sold separately) is required for some older iMOTION control boards
