XMC4000 is the ideal solution to enable sophisticated algorithms in applications like advanced motor control and power conversion control. Innovative products powered by XMC4000 serve market segments like renewable energy, logistics, factory and building automation, transportation and any others where leading-edge real-time and signal-processing capabilities are needed, even in ‘hot environments’ e.g. in proximity to a motor.

 

Application Examples:  1. CNC Machine, 2. Field I/O, 3. Device Solar String Inverter



1. Application Example: CNC Machine

 

Infineon XMC4500 is best suited for supporting high-end motor control applications such as servo drives for CNC machines. The XMC4500 offers the computing performance to run several hard real-time tasks in parallel to heavy communication stacks. With 1 MB embedded flash, 160 kB RAM and a rich peripheral set, it is possible to tailor the application’s specific requirements.

2. Application Example: Field I/O Device

 

Industrial field I/O devices must safely control process inputs and outputs. These can be e. g. switches or relays for process actuators, digital sensors for supervision or light curtains for protection. Infineon’s ISOFACE™ family is specifically designed for this purpose. Together with XMC4000 devices a complete system solution is possible. A safe path can be accomplished by using a redundant chipset of ISOFACE™ or XMC4000.

3. Application Example: Solar String Inverter

 

In today’s solar inverter applications the goal is to achieve the last percentage of efficiency. This is only possible by using optimized inverter topologies with best-in-class power switches. The control of these topologies requires sophisticated pulse generation with symmetric, asymmetric, periodic and aperiodic shapes. In order to operate the solar module in its maximum power point, a fast and accurate simultaneous measurement of current and voltage is necessary. Low load conditions have to be managed in the same way as overloads and safe switch off. Furthermore today’s solar inverters are connected to the internet for remote control and data acquisition. The intelligent peripheral set of the XMC4500 offloads the CPU to safe enough headroom for computing both the hard real-time tasks and the heavy software communication stacks.
