Automotive Gate Driver ICs
Infineon offers a wide range of automotive qualified gate driver ICs covering the usage of MOSFET, IGBT and SiC technologies in automotive applications ranging from 12 V up to 1200 V. Built-in protection, monitoring and diagnostic features facilitate to meet ISO26262 functional safety requirements.
Infineon´s automotive qualified gate driver ICs cover the low voltage domain of 12 V and 48 V applications with ISO26262 compliant full-bridge and 3-phase bridge drivers. The products are ideal for a variety of automotive applications such as electric power steering, brake booster, MHEV starter generator, active roll control, HVAC compressor as well as pumps and fans and where efficiency, space savings and monitoring functions are priorities.
Infineon´s automotive EiceDRIVER™ provide galvanic isolation for automotive applications above 5kW such as the main inverter, DCDC converter and on-board charger in (hybrid) electric vehicles and support IGBT and SiC technologies up to 1200V.
Our fast switching automotive High Voltage ICs increase efficiency in all high voltage auxiliary applications such as HVAC compressor, PTC Heater, on-board Charger as well as pumps and fans to maximize performance in (hybrid) electric vehicles.
The Infineon EiceDRIVER™ family includes automotive IGBT Driver IC’s & SiC MOSFET, providing galvanic isolation and bidirectional signal transmission with high ambient temperature capability. They enable extremely short propagation delays keeping the designer’s flexibilities at the highest level, while providing galvanic isolation using the robust Infineon coreless transformer (CT) technology. They support IGBT and SiC technologies up to 1200V. Advanced monitoring and protection features facilitate the implementation of ISO26262 functional safety requirements. The products operate stable in harsh EMC environments.
The products are based on a RoHS conform and robust package solution specially developed to meet automotive requirements. This results in 260°C peak reflow temperatures while still passing full AEC Q101 qualification. With our zero-defect philosophy, our market-leading products exceed AEC-Q101 automotive quality standards.
Very compact package solutions & high level of feature integration reduce the number of external component to simplify the board layout, minimize system cost and shrink the PCB space needed.
SiC power electronics such as CoolSiC™ - when used in xEV applications like the main inverter, On-board-charger & DC-DC converter - increase the driving range of (hybrid) electric vehicles and reduce energy losses during charging.
EiceDRIVER™ SiC MOSFET Gate Driver ICs are the perfect fit to CoolSiC™ MOSFETs and necessary to utilize the full performance of SiC power switches.
In the automotive EiceDRIVER™portofolio, the 1EDI303xAS variants are optimized for SiC: 1EDI3030AS, 1EDI3031AS, 1EDI3033AS. They incorporate the key features and parameters to drive SiC MOSFETS such as an enhanced switching behaviour (extended CMTI capability, fast propagation delay, switching frequency), wide output-side supply range, short internal deadtime and DESAT / OCP threshold level adaption.
The EiceDRIVER™ 1EDI302xAS/1EDI303xAS product family consists of automotive qualified, pin-compatible product variants which are optimized for IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs. The pin-compatibility makes it easy to switch between variants and swiftly adjust ECUs to different application needs.
The highly robust and proven Infineon Coreless Transformer Technology is used to provide bi-directional signal transfer across the galvanic isolation.
Comprehensive safety features and ISO 26262 compliance significantly facilitate the functional safety implementation on system level for up to ASIL D. With the compact 20-pin package, these product variants are the leanest ISO 26262-compliant gate drivers in the market.
