Sponsored by 9 By Steffen Hering, Marketing Manager Automotive and Industrial IPM Products, IPM Division, ON Semiconductor D esigners of systems such as domestic appliances, solar inverters, automotive powertrain, body electronics, and small industrial drives are under pressure to produce more compact and reliable assemblies at lower cost and within shorter project timeframes, while meeting high targets for performance and elec- tromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The Intelligent Power Module is emerging as an effective solution that can help overcome the challenges associated with bringing up a power stage using discrete components. Using a module, the power-stage design can be com- pleted relatively quickly and with lower design risk by engineers having less specialised power design skills. The circuitry can be smaller as well as more reliable thanks to having fewer interconnections. Integrated or Discrete SPONSORED CONTENT Power Solutions — Which Way to Go?
