Discover the next level of security, power and efficiency
For consumers, a home appliance takes over everyday tasks and makes life much easier and more comfortable – be it washing clothing or dishes or cooling a home. Historically home appliances have been big energy consumers. But at an age of heightened awareness for the environment and financial costs, the demand for energy efficient systems is rapidly growing. At the same time, consumers expect the sleekest, quietest, most compact and visually appealing home appliances. Also, connectivity between an increasing number of devices requires a fallback for user privacy. Product designers are challenged in terms of form and function: They must deliver smaller, smarter secure solutions that are the most powerful – and the most energy-efficient.

More and more home appliances, including refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, air condition units, are getting a boost in the form of a digital inverter to control the motor. It can turn the motor on and off as required, as well as intelligently regulate its performance. Consumers clearly benefit from the inverterization trend: appliances with digital inverters have longer lifetimes, make less noise, and consume less energy.
Room Air Conditioning
To meet the challenges of Inverterized Drives Infineon provides innovative solutions, all out of one hand. For Aircon systems Infineon offers a system solution consisting of an active PFC and an Inverter Stage. The cost-performance optimization allows a reduced bill-of-material and a performance increase of the application itself.
RC-Drives – optimized solution for Consumer Drive Applications:
Expansion of Infineon’s reverse conducting (RC) technology of IGBT plus anti-parallel diode in a single die for 600V. Specifically designed for hard switching applications; for example inverterised fans, compressors, washing machine motors and general purpose drives. Cost optimized and offering excellent space saving capabilities available in 4A, 6A, 10A and 15A current classes in either IPAK (TO-251) or DPAK (TO-252).
Applications: domestic and industrial drives: compressors, pumps, fans
