Rising electricity costs, stricter government regulations and greater consumer expectations: these factors are driving manufacturers to design more energy efficient, quieter and compacter vacuum cleaners and vacuum robots, with better value-for-money. To stay competitive, manufacturers must increase motor power to improve suction, use higher speed motors and find a way to differentiate their vacuum cleaning system. Likewise, better energy efficiency is attained by reducing power consumption. In comparison to their predecessors, today’s vacuum cleaners are compacter, lighter and significantly longer in lifetime – all aspects with great consumer appeal.
Whitepaper: Power device choices in the new small home appliance market
Energy efficient, modern-looking, wipe clean and hermetically sealed surfaces are only a few characteristics that a design engineer has to fit into one small home appliance. Infineon offers solutions for the two key areas – induction heating with its TRENCHSTOP™ F Series Protected IGBT and motor control solutions using our energy-efficient, integrated power devices CIPOS™ Intelligent Power Modules and iMOTION™ Integrated Design Platform.
