High voltage power stage delivers dedicated, reliable appliance solution
Integrating industry benchmark three-phase high voltage ICs and rugged trench IGBTs in a sleek and innovative single in-line package (SIP), IRís
intelligent power modules (IPMs) deliver a complete power stage solution for todayís energy-efficient appliance and light industrial equipment driven
by variable speed motors ranging from 400W to 2500W.
The IPMs are an addition to the iMOTIONô family of integrated
design platforms from IR. Together with a few external components and our IRMCK series of controllers, they form a
complete motor drive system, greatly accelerating the design path compared to a multi-discrete solution.
IPM Product Selection Tool
Example configuration: Integrated Current Shunt|
Built-in over-temperature/over-current protection, along with short-circuit rated IGBTs, an integrated under-voltage
lockout function, and built-in temperature monitor provide a high level of protection and fail-safe operation. Other
integrated features, such as bootstrap diodes for the highside drive function and the single polarity power supply,
simplify overall system design.
- Open emitter coniguration: flexible architecture to configure current sensing feedback resistors. Over-temperature is detected internally and triggers the fault condition.
- Integrated current shunt configuration: a current shunt is included on the negative bus of the inverter. Over-current is detected internally and triggers the fault condition.
IRís iMOTION brings digital controllers, analog stage and power modules together in one easy to implement, integrated design platform.
