We offer you a broad portfolio of efficient semiconductors optimized for motor inverters. You can rely on our intelligent power modules (IPMs) and discretes for smart designs in the low-power range. For medium-power drives, our EasyPIM™, EasyPACK™, and EconoPIM™ modules are the perfect match. Moving on to the high-power spectrum, EconoDUAL™ and PrimePACK™ are the solutions of choice. Combined with the innovative.XT interconnection technology, PrimePACK™ modules can help designers overcome the overrating dilemma as they extend the lifetime by raising thermal and power cycling capabilities.
Motors and their control systems account for almost half of all electricity consumed worldwide. Breaking that down further, around 30% of electricity generated globally is used by industrial drives. Given that the amount of energy consumed by industry is expected to roughly double by 2040, the need for urgent action is evident. Therefore the replacement of motor drives without speed control with smart controlled motors in industrial, consumer and automotive applications is mandatory. New design approaches that adapt the speed and torque of motor drive systems by using inverters hold huge potential to increase efficiency.
Key questions to design your drives inverter
There are five key questions you must always ask. Learn more by discovering the interactive diagram below.
Highlights of our portfolio include our TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 modules, tailored specifically to the needs of drive applications. Ideal for general-purpose drive (GPD) applications, TRENCHSTOP™ IGBT7 devices improve power density, controllability, and overload capability in a variety of proven packages for cost and time gains. For high-speed drives and inverter integration, our CoolSiC™ MOSFETs are an attractive solution as they reduce switching and conduction losses, especially under partial load conditions.
Complementing our power semiconductors, we also offer gate driver ICs for all silicon and silicon carbide (SiC) devices. Our broad EiceDRIVER™ portfolio scales from the 1EDC30I12MH with basic functionality to enhanced models such as 1EDS20I12SV.
For battery-powered applications like automotive brushless DC motors, customers can rely on our wide range of silicon MOSFETs including our OptiMOS™ family. To round out this offering and make your design ready for Industry 4.0, we support rising connectivity needs with iMOTION™, XMC™, and AURIX™ microcontrollers, complemented by OPTIGA™ Trust solutions for the highest security standards. These devices can be combined with sensors from our XENSIV™ family to bring more sensory intelligence to your design and enable innovative features such as predictive maintenance.
