Today, consumers can create a growing list of objects with nothing more than a digital file and a 3D printer. While the excitement is understandably big, 3D printers continue to face a number of limitations – most notably size and speed – that currently prevent the technology from fully replacing a number of assembly line manufacturing process.
Moving beyond these limitations to create winning 3D printing designs requires a highly reliable motor control solution with excellent speed control and position detection capabilities. Furthermore, the compact power supply must offer top energy efficiency and power density.

3D printing solutions from Infineon
In our complete portfolio of semiconductor solutions, find components and system solutions for 3D printing designs destined for high acclaim. This includes our 40V-800V MOSFETs, CoolSET™ or integrated point-of-load converters (SupIRBUCK™) for power management, our µIPM™, NovalithIC™, sensor solutions and XMC4500 microcontroller for motor control, and our OPTIGA™ Trust E or OPTIGA™ Trust TPM for data communication security.
As a leader in power management, we set the benchmark in power supply designs, ensuring highest efficiency ratings and higher power density. Thanks to their high level of integration, our motor control solutions (up to 300W) allow you to significantly reduce PCB space and to lower system cost. Because they are capable of precise rotor position detection, our sensors facilitate more accurate switching points and higher torque. As proven by our exceptional track record, every component bearing the Infineon name is as robust as it is reliable.
