Infineon teams with Infinitum in decarbonisation efforts
At APEC 2023, Infineon Technologies announced the company is joining forces with Infinitum. In this technology collaboration, Infineon will provide silicon carbide (SiC) CoolSiC MOSFETs and other key semiconductor components that greatly contribute to the Infinitum motor system’s motor control.
The Infinitum Aircore EC motor for commercial and industrial applications will be showcased at Infineon's booth #932 at APEC 2023 in Orlando, Florida, 19th to 23th March. The motor uses Infinitum's patented air-core motor design, which replaces heavy iron used in traditional motors with a lightweight, printed circuit board (PCB). The company's motors are 50% smaller and lighter, 10% more efficient and use 66% less copper than traditional motors.
"Infineon is a leading provider of silicon carbide chips and embedded technologies that can greatly contribute to Infinitum motor system's value-added features from an energy, carbon footprint and performance standpoint," said Rick Tewell, President of Infinitum. "We are excited to team with Infineon on our continued collaboration. The company helps us bring innovative new breakthroughs to our customers in the industrial sector."
"Infineon and Infinitum are two companies with the same mission to drive decarbonisation, with greater efficiency in motor control and less waste in hardware for industrial applications," said Michael Williams, Director of Product Marketing, Industrial Power Control Division, Infineon Technologies. "We are excited to team with Infinitum, a company that delivers award-winning motor control systems with hardware motor design that has been taken to a whole new level. With our proven SiC and semiconductor technologies, we are helping Infinitum deliver more precise motor control for better power and energy savings."
Infineon provides power switching in this arena of voltages at 650V and above for a wide range of applications that operate in harsh environments. The company has more than two decades of SiC experience.
Infineon will also be showcasing its broad product portfolio of advanced silicon and wide bandgap materials at booth #932 at APEC 2023 in Orlando, Florida, 19 to 23 March.
