Infineon Technologies released its new IMD110 SmartDriver series.

The series combines the iMOTION™ Motion Control Engine (MCE) with a three-phase gate driver in a compact package.

The gate driver is based on Infineon’s silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and can drive a number of MOSFETs and IGBTs in variable speed drives.

Further, the new series uses the MCE 2.0, providing a ready-to-use motor and PFC control. The MCE 2.0 allows users to focus on systems designs.

The technology implements efficient fiekd-oriented control (FOC) in sensorless or hall-based motor inverters. Per the company, the operating voltage of the SOI gate driver addresses battery and mains powered motors and delivers market-leading robustness and reliability. An integrated voltage regulator enables several supply schemes and helps to achieve a reduced bill of material (BOM).
