Infineon combines IGBT and SiC for complete 22kW motor drive
Infineon‘s 22kW motor drive reference design combines IGBT, SiC, gate drivers, microcontrollers and software as well as a 3D case for a complete product

Infineon Technologies has launched a pre-tested industrial reference design for a 22kW general purpose motor drive that combines both IGBT and silicon carbide (SiC) transistors. Offering a 3D printed casing allows the design to be used as a product for faster time-to-market, taking Infineon into the motor control system market.

The drive integrates the AC-DC converter to allow motors for pumps, fans, compressors, and conveyor belts to be operated directly on a 380 to 480 V three-phase grid in industrial applications with network control and sensor monitoring. The design can be fully re-used for customization and allows customers to evaluate Infineon’s products under real operating conditions.
