Infineon Extends its MOTIX MCU Family to Meet Growing Need For Smaller ICs

Written by Stephen Vicinanza

Infineon extends its Motix MCU family to meet the growing need for smaller ICs. Infineon introduces the TLE988x and TLE989x family of microcontrollers (MCUs) to its portfolio of MOTIX MCUs embedded power ICs.

The family offers a set of new and established features. The MCU families integrate a gate driver, microcontroller, communications interface, and power supply all on a system-on-chip (SoC).

The two families of microcontrollers offer higher performance and also feature CAN (FD) as the communications interface. The ICs are AEC Q-100 qualified, making them ideal for brushless DC motors and brushed DC motors, in automotive areas that include thermal management, and body comfort applications.

“The new MOTIX MCU embedded power IC families address our customers’ needs for the smallest integrated smart motor control solutions with fast and very robust on-chip CAN FD transceivers for host communication,” said Andreas Doll, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Smart Power at Infineon. “The new product families additionally offer approximately 60 percent more processing power compared to the well-established TLE987x product family and provide functional safety and cybersecurity functions which are becoming increasingly important for oil pumps in thermal management systems in electric vehicles.”

Each of these devices use a B4 or B6 bridge N-channel MOSFET driver, respectively. The TLE988x and TLE989x both run on ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and the CAN (FD) controller and tranceiver supporting communication speeds 2 Mbps.
