Protect capital equipment from piracy & IP theft

Protect capital equipment from piracy & IP theft
Industrial automation, medical equipment, electronic components – plagiarism of capital equipment requires effective prevention, such as embedded security solutions from Infineon. According to the OECD, counterfeiting and piracy costs add up to around $638bn annually. The OPTIGA Trust E offers an easily implementable solution to protect manufacturers’ valuable IP from being attacked, analysed, copied and modified.

MOSFETs save space in DC end applications

MOSFETs save space in DC end applications
Infineon has launched a family of StrongIRFET MOSFETs for DC powered circuits including battery powered circuits, brushed and BDLC motor drives. The MOSFETs offer efficiency for end applications such as power and gardening tools, light EVs, UAVs and e-bikes that demand a high level of energy efficiency but are restricted in available space. This is made possible by the compact Medium Can DirectFET housing featuring a revised layout.

Hermetic hybrid DC/DC converters are rated at 185ºC

Hermetic hybrid DC/DC converters are rated at 185ºC
The industry’s first hermetic hybrid DC/DC converters rated at 185ºC in a 1” wide package has been introduced by IR HiRel, an Infineon Technologies company. The devices are designed specifically for oil and gas exploration downhole tools and can withstand the high temperature as well as the high shock environment typically found in these applications. As oil and gas are more and more difficult to find, exploration takes place in environments which are challenging and where temperatures are higher.

Light-triggered thyristor features integrated protection

Light-triggered thyristor features integrated protection
An optically triggered thyristor that can improve the reliability, lower the system cost and simplify the design of ultra-high-power applications has been introduced by Infineon Technologies. The 6” thyristor incorporates reliable optical triggering, eliminating the requirement for an external electrical trigger circuit. In addition, on-board safety features such as overvoltage protection, dv/dt protection and protection against forward voltage transients during recovery time further reduce component count and design complexity.
