Infineon announced it will be releasing the IMC300 motor controller series. The series combines the iMOTION Motion Control Engine (MCE) with an additional microcontroller based on the Arm Cortex-M0 core.
IMC300 complements the IMC100 series, as both leverage Infineon’s MCE 2.0 implementation for ready-to-use motor and power factor correction (PFC) control. By using the MCE for motor control, additional applications can run independently on the embedded Arm microcontroller.
The company’s MCE 2.0 implements field-oriented control (FOC) of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM). The MCE integrates required hardware and software building blocks as well as necessary protection features, resulting in a reduced bill of material (BOM).
The Arm MCU offers a flexible peripheral set and can serve a multitude of purposes like system functions, specific communication, or drive monitoring.
IMC300 devices are pre-certified for applications requiring functional safety according to UL/IEC 60730 ('Class B').
