Infineon’s solutions for the future of epilation
IPL and Laser for the future
New emerging hair removal technologies such as IPL and laser open up new challenges for hardware designers. Infineon comes to help with a broad range of specialized semiconductor products. Portable IPL devices convert low battery output voltage into high DC voltage and switch high currents into the device head to emit high-energy light onto the user’s skin. High-voltage switching requires high-standard components carefully selected from a broad selection of IGBTs and MOSFETs. The OptiMOS™ MOSFET and the TRENCHSTOP™ 5 IGBT are the best fit for the high power density and efficiency requirements of IPL devices. Thanks to the combination of the CoolSET™ integrated stage and the CoolMOS™ CE high-voltage MOSFETs, a highly efficient AC-DC power supply stage gives the IPL all the energy required for a long-lasting and comfortable user experience.
Finetuning the IPL experience to perfection
The output energy of the IPL device should also be adjustable based on the user’s requirements such as skin tone and body part. Infineon’s multi-purpose PSoC™ microcontroller solution is also compatible with the EiceDRIVER™ integrated driver for MOSFET’s and IGBT’s so it works as a centralized control for internal DC-DC and AC-DC conversion, output power regulation and more.
