Evaluation board is for CoolSiC MOSFET motor drive design

The EVAL-M5-E1B1245N-SiC is designed to support customers in designing industrial drives applications with a maximum of 7.5kW motor output.

It comprises an EasyPACK 1B with CoolSiC MOSFET (FS45MR12W1M1_B11), a three-phase AC connector, EMI filter, rectifier and a three-phase output for connecting the motor. The board is based on the modular application design kit (MADK) and equipped with the Infineon standard M5 32-pin interface which allows the connection to a control unit such as the XMC DriveCard 4400 or 1300. Its input voltage covers the range of 340 to 480V AC.

The evaluation board is optimised for general purpose drives as well as for servo drives with very high frequency. The power stage contains sensing circuits for current and voltage and it is equipped with all assembly elements for sensorless field oriented control (FOC). It is characterised by a low inductive design, integrated NTC temperature sensors and a lead-free terminal plating, which makes it RoHS-compliant, says the company.

The EVAL-M5-E1B1245N-SiC is available for order now.
