Infineon’s energy-efficient CIPOS™ Mini Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) integrate the power and control components of an inverter, motor or Power Factor Correction (PFC) power stage in a single package, enabling designers to achieve higher reliability and to optimize PCB size and system cost.
The high level of integration in a CIPOS™ Mini IPM simplifies the design of power systems and markedly shortens time to market. These IPMs may be used to control AC motors in variable-speed drives consuming up to 3kW.
The CIPOS Mini package, a fully isolated dual in-line molded module with Direct Copper Bonding (DCB) offers good thermal conductivity and high electrical isolation. The IPMs are also notable for their high immunity to EMI. Circuit protection is well catered for, and includes an accessible Fault pin and overload protection.
The CIPOS Mini IPM power stage is implemented with either:
- Infineon’s reverse-conducting IGBTs, which offer low saturation voltage and an optimal anti-parallel diode for better EMI performance
- TRENCHSTOP™ IGBTs, which feature a low saturation voltage
- Or high-efficiency CoolMOS™ power MOSFETs
They are controlled by a new, optimized Infineon silicon-on-insulator gate driver for excellent electrical performance, including stability in the presence of transient or negative voltages.
FTM Development Board
This evaluation board is a complete power stage for driving three-phase motors rated for up to 750W. It is equipped with an MADK M1 20-pin interface connector for use with EVAL-M1-099M-C control boards.
Paired with an iMOTION™ control board, the EVAL-M3-102T, this board provides a powerful inverter and PFC system based on TRENCHSTOP™ IGBTs.
