10A / 600V 3-Phase Motor Drive Development Environment

Infineon now offers the Eval-M1-CM610N3, a complete evaluation board including a 3-phase CIPOS™ Mini Intelligent Power Module (IPM) for motor drive applications. In combination with control-boards equipped with the M1 20pin interface connector, like EVAL-M1-1302 or EVAL-M1-099M, it features and demonstrates Infineon’s CIPOS™ Mini IPM technology for motor drives.

The CIPOS™ Mini IPM in this board is IKCM10H60GA which has 600V of voltage and 10A of current rating. It is optimized to high frequency switching applications like washing machines, fans, and so on.

This evaluation board is designed to give Easy-to-use power stage based on the Infineon’s CIPOS™ Mini Inteligent Power Module (IPM). The board is equipped with all assembly groups for sensorless field oriented control (FOC).

It provides a single-phase ac-connector, rectifier and 3-phase output for for connecting the motor. The power stage also contains emitter shunts for current sensing and a voltage divider for dc-link voltage measurement.
