Electronic solutions for quieter and more energy-efficient appliances driven by intuitive sensor-based operation
We live in a connected world and with the rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), home appliances are part of smart home automation networks. Resulting in quieter and more energy-efficient home appliance designs driven by intuitive sensor-based operation. Products can now be linked seamlessly together, forming widespread digital networks with intelligence and communication built-in. This trend delivers higher levels of functionality, making life more convenient for tech-savvy consumers.
Infineon’s components and system solutions will bring more intelligence to your smart and connected home appliances to securely sense, control and connect them. Achieve the highest efficiency levels and smallest form factors and significantly improve your appliances' carbon footprint based on the smartest power designs. By choosing Infineon components, you can easily set your designs apart from the competition. We offer a comprehensive portfolio that makes it easy for you to meet all consumer needs.
CIPOS™ family of IPMs is the optimal solution for highly integrated compressor drives whilst discrete solutions are the best choice, whenever the layout flexibility and thermal performance optimization are the major factors. They can all be combined with iMOTION™ products for dedicated motor control. For the auxiliary power supply, the CoolSET™ rounds up our power portfolio by offering increased robustness and performance. Infineon’s Discrete IGBTs products designed for induction heating applications, in combination with PSoC® microcontrollers for system control, AIROC™ Wi-Fi & Combos products, and XENSIV™ sensors enable highly compact, robust, and reliable systems that consume less power and offer a rich user interface.

CIPOS™ Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) are highly integrated, compact power modules designed to drive motors in applications ranging from home appliances, fans, pumps to general-purpose drives. They are divided into the compact, standard, and performance families: CIPOS™ Nano, CIPOS ™ Micro, CIPOS™ Tiny, CIPOS ™ Mini, and CIPOS™ Maxi, with different semiconductors in different packages and different voltage and current classes. These energy-efficient intelligent power modules integrate the latest power semiconductor and IC technology.
iMOTION™ is a digital motor controller family of highly integrated products for the control of a variable speed drive. It integrates all control and analog interface functions required for sensorless field-oriented control (FOC) of PM motors using DC-link or leg shunt current measurements. They also feature Infineon’s patented and field-proven motor control engine (MCE) which frees the motor control algorithm development process from software coding. Implementing a variable-speed drive is reduced to configuring the MCE for the specific motor.
CoolSET™ AC-DC integrated power stages with quasi-resonant switching scheme offer increased robustness and excellent performance. Infineon's latest generation of fixed frequency CoolSET™ offers higher efficiency and lower switching frequency at medium and light loads, enabled by an integrated frequency step-down.
Infineon combines the industry-leading performance of the TRENCHSTOP™ family with the innovative Reverse Conducting RC IGBT technology to create a new generation of best-in-class devices. With a monolithically integrated diode, the RC IGBTs are perfectly suited for soft switching application as inverterized microwave ovens, and for high-frequency PFC topology. The 600V RC-D2 is a perfect match for low-power consumer drives application.”
PSoC® 6 microcontrollers (MCUs) bridge the gap between expensive, power-hungry application processors and low-power microcontrollers. The ultra-low-power PSoC® 6 MCU features an Arm® Cortex® M4 for high-performance AI/ML tasks such as _FP match algorithm, TFT LCD driver, voice recognition and motor control, and an Arm® Cortex® M0+ for low power tasks System control, BLE, and Caps. With built-in security, your IoT system is protected.
PSoC® 4 microcontrollers have tackled some of the complex portions of embedded system design making it easier for you to get your product to market. Functions such as analog sensor integration, capacitive touch, and wireless connectivity have been integrated and optimized to make the PSoC 4 the perfect product to build up the user interface in a smooth way.
Our AIROC™ Wi-Fi & Combos integrate IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth in a single-chip solution to enable small-form-factor IoT designs. Combo solutions are available for both 1x1 SISO with up to 433 Mbps PHY data rates and 2x2 MIMO with up to 867 Mbps PHY data rates. These solutions can be coupled with external MCUs from popular vendors or Linux on applications processors to implement a complete Wi-Fi + Bluetooth system.
Predictive maintenance enables a data-driven approach to predict and prevent device failures based on pattern recognition and intelligent software models. To collect the necessary data, and enable monitoring of the condition of devices in a building, smart XENSIV™ sensors help to record the most crucial parameters of a device’s status.
Responding to a growing focus on embedded systems amongst attackers, Infineon offers OPTIGA™ Trust hardware security solutions based on a high-end security controller optimized for connected devices. It provides extremely flexible, high-performance, secured access to any major cloud provider.
Overcome ground-shift challenges in your design with Infineon's single-channel, non-isolated EiceDRIVER™ gate driver ICs that feature true differential inputs. The 1EDNx550x gate driver ICs have true differential inputs. Their control signal inputs are largely independent of ground potential. The EiceDRIVER™ 25-V single-channel low-side non-inverting gate drivers for IGBT feature typical 2.6 A source and sink currents in a 6-pin PG-SOT23 package with best-in-class fault reporting accuracy.
