International Rectifier (IR) has expanded its iMotion family of integrated power modules (IPMs) with the release of three advanced IPMs.

The 6A rated IRAMS06UP60A and IRAMS06UP60B IPMs feature a three-phase inverter power stage with gate drivers and auxiliary circuitry in a compact, high-performance, isolated package. It combines the company's low loss, non-punch-through (NPT) short circuit rated IGBT with a three-phase, high-voltage, high-speed driver IC and over 20 individual parts into a single unit.

Designed for motor drive applications in appliances and light industrial products, the device offers built-in overtemperature and overcurrent protection and integrated undervoltage lockout functions that deliver fail-safe operation. Bootstrap diodes in the high-side driver section combine with the required single-polarity power supply to simplify circuits. It also includes a temperature monitor read-back signal and synchronized shut down function.

The IRAM06UP60A has open emitter configuration that enables multishunt current feedback for sophisticated vector control loops, while the IRAMS10UP60B includes a current feedback shunt. The IRAMS06UP60A is pin-to-pin compatible with the existing IRAMS10UP60A and IRAMX16UP60A, giving the motion control designer a simple path to upgrade or expand power level offerings in existing designs.

Offered in SIP2 packages, pricing begins at $9.25 in 10,000-unit quantities.
