Combining our technology of IGBT7, current sensor, gate driver and control in one system
The reference design REF-22K-GPD-INV-EASY3B is an industrial motor drive for three-phase 400 V AC grids and has a nominal power of 22 kW. It includes the EasyPIM™ 3B power module FP100R12W3T7_B11, the current sensor TLI4971-A120T5, the gate driver IC 1ED3131MC12H, the 1.7 kV SiC-MOSFET IMBF170R1K0M1 and the microcontrollers XMC4800-F144F2048 and XMC4300-F100K256. The combination of these Infineon products allows the customer to evaluate these products in one design and experience the interaction between the products.
This Reference Design is a general purpose drive developed for applications like pumps, fans, compressors, conveyor belts. The design has the look and feel of a typical drive and includes EMI filter, a pre-charge and capacitor bank, isolated power supplies, a power module, controls and a heat sink with a fan. It can be operated directly on a three-phase grid, enabling a fast evaluation of our technologies such as IGBT7, gate driver, current sensor and control technologies in one system, providing a one-stop solution.
