Semiconductor manufacturer CISSOID and digital control developer Silicon Mobility are partnering to develop a new series of SiC inverter products. The modular platform will offer a power module and its gate driver with protections and fault management, an ultra-fast field-programmable control unit (FPCU), and application software optimized for e-motor control.
Each of CISSOID’s intelligent power modules (IPMs) integrates a 3-phase 1,200 V/340-550 A SiC MOSFET power module with a temperature-robust gate driver designed for low switching losses and high power density. Silicon Mobility’s OLEA FPCU controller and OLEA APP INVERTER software are designed to enable fast and efficient electric motor control.
“Silicon Mobility’s ultra-fast OLEA FPCU is the perfect technology to control our SiC IPM platform in motor drive applications,” said Pierre Delatte, CTO of CISSOID. “The capability of SiC power modules to switch faster and to operate at higher frequencies makes it essential to have access to a controller technology capable of running real-time algorithms faster. OLEA FPCU’s low power consumption is also a key advantage in building highly compact and efficient traction inverters.”
“CISSOID’s SiC IPM platform is a great technology in helping to accelerate the development of SiC power converters,” said David Fresneau, VP at Silicon Mobility. “By combining CISSOID technology with our control solution, we are offering a hardware and software platform that will make possible the development of efficient and critically safe SiC inverters.”
