Infineon silicon carbide power module for EVs
Silicon carbide in electric vehicles stands for more efficiency, higher power density and performance. Particularly with an 800V battery system and a large battery capacity, silicon carbide leads to a higher efficiency in inverters and thus enables longer ranges or lower battery costs.
CoolSiC 62mm module applications for silicon carbide
Infineon Technologies has added another industry standard package to its CoolSiC MOSFET 1,200V module family. The proven CoolSiC 62mm device has been designed in half-bridge topology and is based on the trench chip technology
EconoPACK+ H2S protection enhances IGBT modules
Ruggedness determines the longevity and thus the reliability of modules for applications used in harsh environments. In particular the exposure to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has a critical impact on the lifetime of electronic components. To respond to this threat, Infineon Technologies has developed a protection feature. EconoPACK+ modules with a TRENCHSTOP IGBT4 chipset are the first of the Econo portfolio featuring this new level of protection...
TLE9012AQU sensing IC battery management systems in EVs
Infineon Technologies has expanded its product offering for battery management systems with a new sensing and balancing IC, the TLE9012AQU. The device is especially designed for batteries in hybrid and electric cars, but it is also suitable for other applications.
QPL-qualified SupIR-SMD package for rad hard MOSFETs
Reliably attaching surface mount hermetic power packages to PCBs is a common challenge faced by space system designers. Too often, different thermal coefficients lead to an expansion mismatch of different materials. IR HiRel, an Infineon Technologies company, has solved this issue with fourteen newly QPL-qualified rad hard MOSFETs (radiation-hardened) housed in an innovative direct-to-PCB mounting package.
Infineon SECORA ID S security for electronic ID cards
With SECORA ID, Infineon Technologies offers an easy-to-integrate security platform for contactless digital ID documents. The first product variant, SECORA ID S, is a particularly flexible, Java-based solution. It simplifies and accelerates the design and production of region-specific sovereign documents such as eIDs in card format.
Infineon introduces secured NOR Flash memory
With the acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Infineon Technologies has enhanced its expertise in memory solutions. Infineon has announced the addition of Semper Secure to its Semper NOR Flash memory platform.
LED driver IC gives design freedom in low current strips
Infineon Technologies releases the BCR431U. The constant current linear LED driver IC provides low-voltage drop performance for regulating LED current. It is the second device released in the new generation BCR family with low voltage drop focusing on low current designs of up to 37mA.
From solar and wind to energy storage: Trends and solutions
Despite their varied applications, solar inverters, wind turbine converters and ESS solutions have a lot in common. Each typically operates up to the voltage and current extremes of existing silicon switch technology, and each benefits from the efficiency improvements wide-bandgap SiC switches and diodes are offering.
eTruck reduces CO2 emissions at Infineon's site
Infineon has announced that it is taking a further step towards CO2 neutrality by focusing on electric mobility for logistics solutions. Just in time for the World Environment Day (June 5th), an etruck will be commissioned at the Regensburg site after two weeks of testing.
How to enable predictive maintenance and condition monitoring for HVAC
In commercial buildings, HVACR equipment failures can have severe impact on building operations and operating costs. Currently, fixed maintenance plans are used for HVACR devices due to a lack of insights on the devices’ status.
CoolSiC MOSFET for high voltage auxiliary power supplies
Infineon Technologies has added to its CoolSiC MOSFET offering with yet another voltage class. Having added 650V to the portfolio earlier this year, the company is now launching the 1,700V class with its proprietary trench semiconductor technology.
Si, SiC or GaN? The right choice for power devices
By the end of this webinar, attendees will learn:
Infineon completes equity part of Cypress refinancing
Infineon Technologies has placed 55 million new shares, following an accelerated bookbuilding process with institutional investors, under the exclusion of subscription rights. The shares were placed at a price of € 19.30 per share resulting in gross proceeds of approximately €1.06bn.
Self-contained Raspberry Pi audio HAT board from Infineon
Infineon Technologies has developed a fully self-contained Raspberry Pi audio amplifier HAT (Hardware attached on Top) board. It offers high definition audio at boom box power levels in a small form factor.
Discrete CoolSiC MOSFETs tests different driving options
Double pulse testing is a standard procedure for designers to learn about the switching behaviour of power devices. To facilitate the testing of drive options for the 1,200V CoolSiC MOSFET in TO247 3-pin and four-pin packages, Infineon Technologies introduced a modular evaluation platform.
How easy is it to connect devices securely to the IoT?
Providing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is challenging for any design process. With the IoT, additional constraints, like the number of devices to be connected and the computing power required, significantly increase the complexity of this task. Infineon Technologies will review these constraints and show how the OPTIGA Trust X solution can help reduce complexity when adding security to your PKI design.
D²PAK 7pin+ MOSFETs for battery-powered applications
Infineon Technologies has complemented its StrongIRFET 40-60 V MOSFET product family with the addition of three new devices in D²PAK 7pin+ package. These new components offer extremely low R DS(on) and high current-carrying capability, which increases both robustness and reliability for high-power-density applications that require high efficiency.
Secured connectivity for data-driven supply chains
Industrial supply chain solutions like digital twins, usage-based pricing models, product warranties or licensing solutions increasingly require reliable and auditable sensor and process data. Yet security is paramount, especially when data is transferred from one company or organisation to another, Infineon has a a solution for secured connectivity.
