Induction rice cooker
Our products enable you to build devices with optimized heating control and ease-of-use HMI touch control
Induction heating is a key element in many small home appliances such as tabletop and multi-hob cookers, fryers, and even milk-frothers, giving the benefits of precise heating control, speed of response, and better energy efficiency when compared to conventional electric heating elements. Customers demand high efficient and reliable devices while keeping costs and size down. Here inverterization and Wi-Fi connection come into play making cooking appliances more efficient, smarter, and safer. Infineon's product portfolio offers a comprehensive range of solutions for precise system control, optimized energy efficiency, and an intelligent touch interface.
For system control, we recommend our Arm Cortex 32-bit PSoC® Microcontrollers (MCUs) with ultra-low power consumption and high performance. Use our XENSIV™ magnetic Hall sensors for simple, robust and cost-optimized galvanically isolated current sensing with highly accurate current detection and smaller form factor.
For auxiliary power, our Gen 5 CoolSET™ offers an AC-DC Integrated Power Stage with optimal light and medium load efficiency and low standby power consumption combined with high reliability from the integrated 700 V or 800 V CoolMOS™. Optimized for soft switching applications, the 5th Generation Reverse Conducting IGBT family enables the highest power density and efficiency. Optimal integration and safety are ensured by the choice of the EiceDRIVER™ 25 V single-channel low-side non-inverting gate driver for IGBT in SOT-223 with best-in-class fault reporting accuracy. To meet customer demand for intuitive devices with an intelligent touch interface (UI), we help you integrate a UI including TFT and wireless voice remote control. Our 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M0 PSoC® 4 family of microcontrollers use the advanced UI technology CapSense® Capacitive-Sensing UI and the MagSense™ Inductive-Sensing UI.

PSoC® 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. The built-in Capsense technology allows you to easily implement robust touch control of buttons or displays.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Infineon combines the industry-leading performance of the TRENCHSTOP™ family with the innovative Reverse Conducting RC-H IGBT technology to create a new generation of best-in-class devices. With a monolithically integrated diode, the RC-H IGBTs are perfectly suited for soft switching application as inverterized microwave ovens ”
Overcome ground-shift challenges in your design with Infineon's single-channel, non-isolated EiceDRIVER™ gate driver ICs, 1EDNx550x, that feature true differential inputs and guarantee high immunity against negative voltage undershoots and low dissipation. The 1EDNx550x gate driver ICs have true differential inputs. Their control signal inputs are largely independent of ground potential. Or use Infineon’s 1ED4417x EiceDRIVER™ 25-V single-channel low-side, non-isolated gate drivers with integrated over-current protection (OCP), fault reporting, and enable functionality in a 6-pin PG-SOT23 package. The 1ED4417x family realizes best-in-class and fast fault reporting accuracy with OCP threshold tolerance of +/-5%.
Infineon's latest generation of fixed frequency CoolSET™ AC-DC integrated power stages with quasi-resonant switching scheme offers increased robustness and excellent performance. Infineon's fixed frequency CoolSET™ offers higher efficiency and lower switching frequency at medium and light loads, enabled by an integrated frequency step-down.
