Overview

The LEV application, together with a market overview, market drivers and application trends are introduced in this presentation. Infineon Technologies offers a wide range of products for the LEV charger, motor control and battery management. While the Infineon offerings for motor control and battery management will be mentioned, the main focus of the presentation is on the LEV battery charger. Solutions and use topologies for different power classes of chargers will be described. Starting from below 200W and reaching up to 2kW and above, covering applications ranging from e-bikes, e-scooters and e-3 wheelers up to micro e-cars. Suitable CoolMOS™ switches and their benefits in the described charger solutions will be presented, together with the suitable CoolSiC™ diodes and EiceDRIVER™ gate driver ICs. Furthermore a 2kW high efficient natural convection cooled demonstrator design based on CoolMOSTM P7 will be presented which can be used for charging 48V lead-acid and Li-ion batteries.
