Dev Kit Weekly – Infineon iMOTION Modular Application Design Kit

May 21, 2019 Brandon Lewis

This week we call out motor control engineers with a breakdown of Infineon's iMOTION Modular Application Design Kit (MADK). The MADK is a three-phase motor drive evaluation platform that includes a controller and the ability to interface with intelligent power modules over an M1/M3 interface. 
The compatible power modules enable rapid prototyping of applications ranging from 20W to 1.5kW, which Infineon says you can have up and running inside an hour with the MADK development platform.
To help fine-tune the control and power subsystems, engineers get access to a range of development tools with MADK. In addition to your standard debug interfaces and the ability to hook up standard oscilloscope probes, designers can use DAVE software, MCEDesigner, and MCEwizard to program the iMOTION controller. IPM motor drive and CIPOSIM power simulation tools are also available for download to accelerate power subsystem design.
