Tiny inverter modules offer high power density for motor drives

17-06-2019 | Mouser Electronics | Subs & Systems

Mouser now offers the Infineon Technologies CIPOS Tiny three-phase inverter modules. The module is the company’s newest generation of Intelligent Power Modules, providing very high power density for variable-speed motor drives in products such as range hoods, room air conditioning, washing machines, and industrial and commercial fans.

The modules utilise the company's latest TRENCHSTOP IGBT 6 to facilitate maximum efficiency in a footprint 33% smaller than the CIPOS Mini series. The modules combine a single three-phase, level-shifting high voltage driver IC and are compatible down to 3.3V controller outputs. The series offers a blocking voltage of 600V and four output current classes from 6A to 20A. With features such as under-voltage lockout, a high-precision temperature monitor, and over-current protection, the modules deliver fail-safe operation with high system-level protection.

Mouser also offers multiple evaluation boards with several variants of the CIPOS Tiny modules on board. The easy-to-use boards work with the iMOTION Modular Application Design Kit to assist in minimising development time.
