CIPOS™ IPMs (Intelligent Power Modules) by Infineon

Infineon offers a variety of IPMs with different semiconductors in different packages, voltage and current classes depending on the level of integration and power to be handled. These IPMs are separated into CIPOS™ Nano, CIPOS™ Micro, CIPOS™ Mini as well as CIPOS™ Maxi families.

Why should you decide to use IPMs? They combine gate drivers and six power stages in one package, which results in less components for an improved manufacturability, less space on the PCB and higher reliability compared with discrete solutions.

CIPOS™ IPMs serve a wide range of applications from pumps and fans over home appliance to low power general purpose drives for industrial purpose.
