Implementing Functionally Safe xEV Power Inverter Designs Utilizing IGBTs or SiC MOSFETs

The combination of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and regulatory compliance concerns and the expanding availability of xEVs for the mainstream consumer car segment has spurred demand for electrified vehicles. Competitive and cost pressures in the electrification market require improved vehicle efficiencies and faster development of high-voltage inverter designs which can support a wide range of traction motor performance levels while reducing cost, volume, and weight of the overall system. NXP offers all the essential IC components and enablement software necessary for safely, efficiently, and reliably implementing the power control functions of an xEV traction inverter system.

This session provides a technical deep dive of a complete traction inverter system solution (hardware, software, functional safety) engineered to help customers accelerate the development of their next-generation electric vehicles (HEV/PHEV/BEV). Further, the inverter solution addresses the emerging transition from utilizing IGBTs to SiC MOSFETs.

During this session attendees will:
· Learn about vehicle electrification market trends.
· Understand technical specifications and key features for an xEV traction inverter system supporting ASIL-D level system functional safety.
· Discover how NXP’s automotive products address the market needs for xEV Inverter systems, featuring a new Power Inverter Motor Control reference design which is adaptable to IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs.
· See a demonstration of a SiC MOSFET-based inverter reference design spinning a 3-phase PMSM motor. 
· Get an overview of proposed solutions to realize more efficient electrification system.
