SiC Inverter Reference Designs

Benchtop Inverter Reference Designs

The EVK-PLA1050B series of reference designs bring together all the elements developed for Silicon Carbide traction inverters. The benchtop inverter reference designs are made to boost the development of electric drivetrains and drastically accelerate time-to-market.

Based on CISSOIDs SiC Inverter Control Modules (ICMs), the reference designs can support up to 800V operating bus voltages and 300kW continuous power output.  

Four variants are on offer, ranging from 650V/150kW to 800V/300kW.

 

Product Brief





Certified real-time processor and software

The control board in the Inverter Control Modules, employed in the reference designs, are based on Silicon Mobility's application specific processor, the OLEA® T222 Field Programmable Control Unit (FPCU). The OLEA® T222 FPCU sports programmable hardware to accelerate response times to critical events, off-loading the processor cores and enhancing functional safety. The platform is supplied with highly configurable control application software supporting various types of electric motors and position sensors.

The OLEA® APP – T222 INVERTER is an embedded software designed for the OLEA® T222 FPCU parallel architecture, enabling high-performance, real-time control. It offers efficient and safe control of torque, speed, current, and rotor using cutting-edge algorithms. This versatile software suits a wide range of applications, supports the latest technology inverters, and leverages parallel hardware for fast control loops. It also includes a separate functional safety stack and supports a model-based design flow for seamless integration.

The OLEA® T222 FPCU and the OLEA® APP - T222 INVERTER software are
ISO 26262 ASIL C/D certified and AUTOSAR 4.3 compliant.
