Infineon introduces the IPM series CIPOS Tiny IM323-L6G

Infineon Technologies has announced that it has added a new member to the CIPOS Tiny Intelligent Power Module (IPM) family: the CIPOS Tiny IM323-L6G 600 V 15 A.

The IPM is based on TRENCHSTOP IGBT RC-D2 switches and state-of-the-art SOI gate driver technology delivering a combination of maximum efficiency and improved reliability, along with reduced system size and cost.

The integration of discrete power semiconductors and drivers in one package allows designers to reduce the time and effort spent on design, significantly shortening the time-to-market. The module is suitable for major home appliances, in particular drives for room air conditioners.

The CIPOS Tiny IM323-L6G is optimised for 3-phase inverters up to 1.2 kW and an operating range of 1 to 20 kHz. The device uses the latest 600 V TRENCHSTOP RC-D2 technology with monolithically integrated diode with maximum junction temperature 175 ºC for the switch. Equipped with the rugged new C5SOI gate driver technology for negative voltage spikes at the motor outputs, the IPM has been designed to ensure a short-circuit capability of at least 3 µs and delivers a high level of protection and fail-safe operation. In case of overcurrent and under voltage, the IPM provides cross-conduction prevention and turn-off of all switches.

The IM323-L6G is moulded in a robust and pin-compatible 33 x 19 mm 2 DIP package with built-in NTC which allows high flexibility of the mechanical system design and offers improved package robustness, which results in high reliability.

The module also features the latest switching and gate driver technology while full in-house production for front-end and back-end provides supply security.
