    2 Min Read

    Infineon Technologies AG introduced the SSO10T TSC package with OptiMOS™ MOSFET technology. With its direct top-side cooling concept, the package offers excellent thermal performance. This eliminates heat transfer into or through the PCB of the automotive electronic control unit.

    The package enables a simple and compact double-sided PCB design and minimizes cooling requirements and system costs for future automotive power designs. The SSO10T TSC is therefore well suited for applications such as electric power steering (EPS), EMB, power distribution, brushless DC drives (BLDC), safety switches, reverse battery, and DCDC converters. 

    The SSO10T TSC has a 5 x 7 mm² footprint and is based on the established industry standard SSO8, a 5 x 6 mm² robust housing. However, due to its top-side cooling, the SSO10 TSC offers more than 20 percent and up to 50 percent higher performance than the standard SSO8 – depending on the thermal interface (TIM) material used and the TIM thickness. The SSO10T TSC package is JEDEC listed for open market and provides wide second source compatibility. As a result, the package can be introduced quickly and easily as the future standard for top-side cooling.

    The SSO10T package enables a very compact PCB design and reduces the system footprint. It also lowers the cost of the cooling design by eliminating vias, resulting in lower overall system costs and design effort. At the same time, the housing offers high power density and efficiency, thus supporting the development of future-proof and sustainable vehicles.

    Motor drive applications are taking a leap forward with the launch of the Infineon Technologies AG OptiMOS™ 6 200 V MOSFET product family. The new portfolio is designed to deliver optimal performance in applications such as e-scooters, micro-EVs, and E-forklifts.

    The improved conduction losses and switching behavior for these new MOSFETs reduce the electromagnetic interference (EMI) and switching losses. This benefits various switching applications, including servers, telecom, energy storage systems (ESS), audio, solar and others.

    Additionally, the combination of a wide safe operating area (SOA) and industry-leading R DS(on) results in a perfect fit for static switching applications such as  battery management systems. With the introduction of the new OptiMOS 6 200 V product family, Infineon sets a new industry benchmark with increased power density, efficiency, and system reliability for its customers’ benefit.

    The OptiMOS 6 200 V portfolio delivers enhanced technical features compared to its predecessor, the OptiMOS 3. It features a 42 percent lower R DS(on) that contributes to reduced conduction losses and increased output power. Regarding diode behavior, the OptiMOS 6 200 V provides a significant increase in softness, more than three times that of the OptiMOS 3.

    Combined with up to 89 percent reduction in Q rr(typ), the switching and EMI behaviors are significantly improved. The technology also features improvements in parasitic capacitance linearity (C oss and C rss), which reduces oscillation during switching and lowers voltage overshoot. A tighter V GS(th) spread and lower transconductance aid in MOSFET paralleling and current sharing, leading to more uniform temperatures and reducing the number of paralleled MOSFETs.

    The OptiMOS 6 200 V products feature an improved SOA and are classified as MSL 1 according to J-STD-020. These RoHS-compliant, lead-free products align with current industry standards.

    Artificial Intelligence is currently driving an exponential increase in global data generation, and consequently increasing the energy demands of the chips supporting this data growth. Infineon Technologies AG launched its TDM2254xD series dual-phase power modules that enable best-in-class power density, quality and total cost of ownership (TCO) for AI data centers.

    The TDM2254xD series products blend innovation in robust OptiMOS TM MOSFET technology with novel packaging and proprietary magnetic structure to deliver industry-leading electrical and thermal performance with robust mechanical design. This lets data centers operate at higher efficiency to meet the high power demands of AI GPU (Graphic Processor Unit) platforms while also significantly reducing TCO.

    Given that AI servers require 3 times more energy than traditional servers, and data centers already consume more than 2 percent of the global energy supply, it is essential to find innovative power solutions and architecture designs that further drive decarbonization. Paving the way for the green AI factory, Infineon’s TDM2254xD dual-phase power modules combine with XDP TM Controller technology to enable efficient voltage regulation for high-performance computing platforms with superior electrical, thermal and mechanical operation.

    Infineon introduced the TDM2254xD series at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC). The modules’ unique design allows for efficient heat transfer from the power stage on to the heat sink through novel inductor design that is optimized to transfer current and heat, thereby allowing for a 2 percent higher efficiency than industry average modules at full load. Improving power efficiency at the core of a GPU yields significant energy savings at scale. This translates into megawatts saved for data centers computing generative AI and in turn leads to reduced CO 2 emissions and millions of dollars in operating cost savings over the system’s lifetime.

    “This unique Product-to-System solution combined with our cutting-edge manufacturing lets Infineon deliver solutions with differentiated performance and quality at scale, thereby significantly reducing total cost of ownership for our customers,” said Athar Zaidi, Senior Vice President, Power & Sensor Systems at Infineon Technologies. “We are excited to bring this solution to market; it will accelerate computing performance and will further drive our mission of digitalization and decarbonization.”

    The electrification of the transportation system is advancing continuously. In addition to passenger cars, 2- and 3-wheelers as well as light vehicles are increasingly being electrified. Therefore, the automotive market for Electronic Control Units (ECUs) powered by 24 V-72 V is expected to keep growing in the coming years.

    To address this development, Infineon Technologies AG is complementing its OptiMOS™ 5 portfolio of automotive MOSFETs in the 60 V and 120 V range with new products in the high power packages TOLL, TOLG and TOLT. They are offering a compact form factor with very good thermal performance combined with excellent switching behavior.

    The six new products offer a narrowed gate threshold voltage (V GS(th)) enabling designs with parallel MOSFETs for increased output power capability. The IAUTN06S5N008, IAUTN06S5N008G and IAUTN06S5N008T are 60 V MOSFETs, and the IAUTN12S5N017, IAUTN12S5N018G and IAUTN12S5N018T are 120 V MOSFETs.

    The on resistance (R DS(on)) ranges from 1.7 mΩ to 1.8 mΩ for the 120 V MOSFETs and is 0.8 mΩ for the 60 V MOSFETs. This makes the 60V MOSFETs perfectly suited for high power 24 V supplied CAV applications or for HV-LV DCDC converters in xEVs. The 120 V MOSFETs are used in 48 V – 72 V supplied traction inverters for 2- or 3-wheelers and light electric vehicles.
