Infineon Introduces CoolGaN IPS Family

News

Integrated power stage family targets applications in the 30 to 500W power range

Infineon has added the new CoolGaN IPS family of integrated power stage (IPS) products to its broad portfolio of WBG power devices. The initial IPS portfolio consists of half-bridge and single-channel products, targeting low-to medium power applications, including chargers and adapters and switched-mode power supplies (SMPS).

The 600 V CoolGaN half-bridge IPS IGI60F1414A1L is ideally suited for compact and lightweight designs in the low-to-medium power range. Coming in a thermally enhanced 8x8 QFN-28 package, it enables systems with high power density. The product combines two 140 mΩ / 600 V CoolGaN e-mode HEMT switches with dedicated galvanically isolated high- and low-side gate ivers out of Infineon's EiceIVER family.

The IGI60F1414A1L is easy to control due to the isolated gate driver with two digital PWM inputs. The integrated isolation function, the clean separation of digital and power ground and the reduced complexity of the PCB layout are crucial in achieving shorter development time, lower system bill-of-material and lower total cost. The gate driver's input-to-output isolation is based on Infineon's proven on-chip coreless transformer (CT) technology. This guarantees high speed and excellent robustness even for extremely fast switching transients with voltage slopes exceeding 150 V/ns.

The switching behavior of IGI60F1414A1L can be easily adapted to the needs of different applications by means of a few passive gate path components. This allows slew rate optimisation for example to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) efforts, steady-state gate current setting, and negative gate ive for robust operation in hard-switched applications.

Furthermore, due to the system-in-package integration and the highly accurate and stable propagation delay of the gate ivers, the IGI60F1414A1L enables the lowest possible system dead-times. This helps to maximise system efficiency, leading to the next level of power density up to 35 W/in³ for charger and adapter solutions. Flexible, easy and fast designs are also enabled for other applications, including LLC resonant topology and motor drives.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
