International Rectifier's IRAMX16UP60A is an Integrated Power Module developed and optimized for electronic motor control in appliance applications such as washing machines and variable speed compressor drives for in-room air-conditioning systems and commercial refrigerators. Plug N Drive technology offers an extremely compact, high performance AC motor-driver in a single isolated package for a very simple design. An open emitter configuration of the low side IGBT switches offer easy current feedback and overcurrent monitor for high precision and reliable control. A built-in temperature monitor and over-current protection, along with the short-circuit rated IGBTs and integrated under-voltage lockout function, deliver high level of protection and fail-safe operation. The integration of the bootstrap diodes for the high-side driver section, and the single polarity power supply required to drive the internal circuitry, simplify the utilization of the module and deliver further cost reduction advantages.
