PDH – Support

Infineon 32-bit Embedded Power ICs based on Arm® Cortex® M

Bluewind is officially appointed as Infineon Preferred Design House (PDH) for 32-bit Embedded Power ICs based on Arm Cortex addressing motor control applications.

Bluewind offers first level customer support for Infineon’s Embedded Power ICs and can be used as technical interface and support to customer. We help to drive the design-in at customer and can offer basic trainings for design teams at customers. This service is free-of-charge for our customers.

Bluewind has been supporting Infineon in the Automotive & Industrial segment since 1998, and has been designing applications with their products since then, consulting European customers in several market fields.

Overview

Embedded Power ICs are systems that can enable mechatronic motor control solutions for either relay, single or two phase DC and BLDC motor applications.

Infineon’s System-on-Chip solutions offer an unmatched level of integration of all functions required to sense, control and actuate a motor.

Embedded Power ICs

Infineon Embedded Power ICs are specifically designed to enable mechatronic motor control solutions for a range of motor control applications in which a small package form factor and a minimum number of external components are essential. Embedded Power ICs are system-on-chip solutions addressing motor control applications for either relay, single or two phase DC and BLDC motor applications. Such applications include window lift, sunroof, wiper, fuel pump, HVAC fans, engine cooling fan and water pumps, to name a few.

The integration of a 32-bit microcontroller, the non-volatile flash memory, the analog and mixed signal peripherals, the communication interfaces along with the driving stage offers an unmatched level of integration of all functions required to sense, control and actuate a motor.

These highly integrated products save space and energy, improve the overall system reliability through advanced diagnosis features and reduce the overall cost due to a minimum number of components.

Why to use Embedded Power ICs

Infineon’s highly integrated System-on-Chip solutions have various substantial benefits due to the advanced diagnosis features and minimal number of external devices.

Enable cost and board space improvements:

Our Embedded Power products integrate data processing, actuation and sensing. The chip comes in a leadless VQFN package with 7 x 7 mm footprint and enables PCB space saving. The Embedded Power IC families allow driving of relays and MOSFETs at VBatt ≥ 6 V without external components, providing a very cost effective solution on a system level.

Enabling high levels of system reliability:

Extensive diagnostics and protections are embedded within the system-on-chip, more than a discrete approach can offer. In addition both the Embedded Power IC and the external MOFESTs can be protected.

Support multiple and flexible designs with minimal effort:

All Embedded Power ICs are software compatible, maximizing a single design through scalability.
