Both are turnkey solutions for low power compressors that can be copied by customers to build final mass-production application boards. Since the design of the reference boards is system tested developers will be able to drastically reduce their own system development time.
The REF_Fridge_D11T_MOS is a ready-to-use three-phase inverter including the iMOTION Smart Driver IMD111T-6F040 and the 600 V CoolMOS PFD7 superjunction MOSFET IPN60R1K0PFD7S.
The board provides an easy-to-use power stage based on the iMOTION smart driver that combines ready-to-use FOC motor control algorithms with 600 V phase gate driver in LQFP-40 package. It also includes the discrete CoolMOS superjunction MOSFET with lowest Q rr, ESD protection and a compact SOT-223 surface mounted device (SMD) package. The board can be interfaced through iMOTION Link and enables best light-load efficiency as well as providing a compact design.
The reference design REF_Fridge_C101T_IM231 is intended for customers aiming for a higher level of integration and a reduced footprint. The board combines a digital motor control IC (iMOTION) IMC101T-T038 with a three-phase CIPOS Micro intelligent power module based on an 6 A, 600 V IGBT. This combination provides a fully-featured compact inverter solution for low power motor drive applications.
Furthermore, it enables BOM count and PCB size reduction and improves reliability.
