Optimizing induction cooking technology
At Infineon, we are well equipped to help you overcome all the challenges common to induction cooking appliances.
In our full-spectrum portfolio of IGBT, you can find cost-optimized solutions engineered for high performance, such as the RC-H5 IGBT family, oor our Integrated Power Device Protect (IPD Protect) which combines a 1350 V, 20 A IGBT in RC-H5 technology with a unique protecting gate driver IC. Our products also operate under high EMC disturbances and surge conditions, and enable high power operation with a high system-efficiency due to low VCEsat, VF, Eoff, and Rth.
Our 2EDL and 2ED compact gate driver family guarantees high immunity against negative voltage undershoots and low dissipation.
You can exploit the wide functionalities of our XMC family of MCUs for a simple design of the system control. You can ensure secured identification of the cooking unit with the home automation network by integrating our OPTIGA™ Trust products. Choose products and expertise from Infineon and easily design your induction cooking applications to fulfill the latest market demands.

Quicker, more consistent heating and better energy-efficiency have made induction cooking a growing consumer trend. But designing an induction cooking system is not without its challenges. Designers often face the problem of high field failure rates caused by grid disturbances, and the replacement and service costs for stoves are very high. On the other hand, the competitive nature of the market increases cost pressure and limits use of protective features.
At the same time, as the market evolves towards connectivity, new security issues arise for induction cooking technology. Higher power stoves for faster cooking also mean that components are expected to operate under more demanding conditions. The net effect of all this: powerful semiconductors are subject to high electrical and thermal stress.
Induction heating appliances take the heat
Induction heating design for visually appealing small appliances is now simpler than ever.
The integrated IGBT and driver solutions from Infineon provide high efficiency while keeping costs and size down, and their comprehensive protection mechanisms and generous ratings ensure reliable operation in the heat of any kitchen. Induction heating is now a key element in many small home appliances such as rice cookers, fryers, and even milk-frothers, giving the benefits of precise and even heating control, speed of response and better energy efficiency when compared to conventional electric heating elements.
