A new member has been added to the growing family of intelligent power modules (IPMs): CIPOS Tiny from Infineon Technologies. The three-phase inverter module is the newest generation of IPM to offer the highest power density for variable speed motor drives. By using the latest TRENCHSTOP IGBT6, it is possible to realise maximum efficiency with minimum footprint.

Applications profiting from CIPOS Tiny include high efficiency washing machines, fans, compressors, and industrial drives. The IPM will allow customers to reduce system cost, improve reliability, and lower energy consumption. CIPOS Tiny will be showcased at PCIM 2019

The advanced CIPOS Tiny is molded in a compact and fully isolated thermally enhanced 34x15mm² package. In addition, system mechanical design flexibility is also considered by offering both Tiny SIP and DIP form factors. It offers an integrated high precision temperature monitor, over-current protection, and under-voltage lockout function. 

With these features, the IPM delivers a high system level protection and enables fail-safe operation. Utilising the newest single three-phase level-shifting high voltage driver IC adds to highest efficiency and ruggedness. The gate driver is compatible down to 3.3V controller outputs.

The CIPOS Tiny IM393 series features a blocking voltage of 600V and four output current class: Tiny S (6 A) / Tiny M (10 A) / Tiny L (15 A) / Tiny X (20 A).

All eight devices can be ordered now. 

At the PCIM 2019 tradeshow, Infineon is presenting innovative product-to-system solutions for applications that are set to power the world and shape the future. Infineon’s demos are presented at booth #313 in hall 9 (Nuremberg, Germany, 7th to 9th May 2019).
