Motor control for battery powered applications
For battery powered applications – such as light electric vehicles like pedelecs and e-Bikes or a variety of cordless power tools – saving battery power is key. Infineon offers an excellent selection of devices for power management and -consumption, and voltage regulation – such as CoolMOS™ power MOSFETs, XMC™ microcontrollers, EiceDRIVER™ gate drivers and n-channel OptiMOS™ devices. All with the highest-possible energy efficiency and top precision.
Example battery powered application motor control and drives
The Eval 5kW TO-Leadless evaluation board makes it easy to familiarize oneself with Infineon’s Power MOSFET OptiMOS™ 100V in the new TO-Leadless package. This new package is optimized for high-current applications, such as forklifts, light electric vehicles (LEV), PoL (Point of Load) and low-speed cars.
The XMC1000 and XMC4400 motor control application kits are ready-made evaluation kits for 3-phase drives. These two kits are best suited to customers looking for a motor control plug&play experience. Both kits have a similar setup with a microcontroller board, the respective 24V power board including n-channel OptiMOS™ power transistors and a 3-phase gate driver EiceDRIVER™ from Infineon, rounded off with a brushless DC motor. Both kits are supported by the DAVE™ Motor Control Apps library, including sinusoidal and block commutation as well as various position detection and sensing schemes with encoder, Hall sensors and shunts. The XMC4400 Motor Control Application Kit also includes a resolver interface.
