Infineon Technologies AG introduced a pretested industrial reference design which diminishes the time to market substantially.

The reference design is a general purpose motor drive featuring a nominal power of 22 kW while operating directly on a 380 to 480 V three-phase grid. 

According to Infineon, the design combines its latest technologies in one system, including: 

  • EasyPIM 3B IGBT7 module FP100R12W3T7_B11 
  • EiceDRIVER Compact 1ED3131MC12H
  • XENSIV current sensor TLI4971-A120T5 
  • CoolSiC MOSFET IMBF170R1K0M1 
  • Two microcontrollers – the XMC4800 for control and the XMC4300 for communication
  • Pre-installed software package for motor control. 

An optional 3D-printed housing includes a touchscreen to display current operation conditions and both, EtherCAT and USB interfaces for external connections.

The reference design is suitable for applications such as pumps, fans, compressors, and conveyor belts.
