500 W motor control power board based on STGIF5CH60TS-L SLLIMM™ 2nd series IPM

The STEVAL-IPM05F is a compact motor drive power board based on the SLLIMM™ (small low-loss intelligent molded module) 2nd series product, STGIF5CH60TS-L. It provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for driving high power motors for a wide range of applications such as white goods, air conditioning, compressors, power fans, high-end power tools and generally 3-phase inverters for motor drives. The IPM itself consists of short-circuit rugged IGBTs and a wide range of features including undervoltage lockout, smart shutdown, temperature sensing and NTC, and overcurrent protection.

The main characteristics of this evaluation board are its small size, minimal BOM and high efficiency. It consists of an interface circuit (BUS and Vcc connectors), bootstrap capacitors, snubber capacitor, hardware short-circuit protection, fault event signal and temperature monitoring. In order to increase flexibility, it has been designed to work in single or three-shunt configuration and with double current-sensing options such as using three dedicated on-board op-amps, or op-amps embedded in the MCU. The Hall/Encoder part completes the circuit.

Thanks to these advanced characteristics, the system has been specifically designed to achieve fast and accurate current feedback conditioning, satisfying the typical requirements for field-oriented control (FOC).

The STEVAL-IPM05F is compatible with ST’s STM32-based control board, enabling designers to build a complete platform for motor control.
