Recently popular battery-powered industrial and consumer uses, including cordless power tools and support robots, require cutting edge, dependable, cost- and – energy-efficient motor control options that fulfill the highest security standards. To allow the next generation of advanced and high performance battery-powered products, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) expands its EiceDRIVER product portfolio of three-phase gate driver ICs using all the 6EDL7141. The fully programmable alternative for sophisticated engine control software is packed within an 48-pin VQFN using a 7×7 millimeter ² footprintthat provides greater energy density and enhances overall system performance. Together with the organization’s market-leading power MOSFETs, clients are now able to come up with their full end solutions utilizing Infineon because their one-stop-shop.
The EiceDRIVER 6EDL7141 comes with an SPI port for gate drive outputs setup, in addition to an integrated energy supply and dual charge pumps to provide all system capabilities. Using the operating voltage ranging from 5.5 to 60 V along with also a retractable driving present around 1.5 Additionally, it may induce a broad array of MOSFETs efficiently to fit the program. The 6EDL7141 comes with a flexible shoulder driver supply voltage atmosphere involving 7 V, 10 V, 12 V and 15 V. Due to its built in double charge pumps, so it can keep the gate push at low battery voltage. Additionally, the wise driver has a flexible gate driveway settings, with many present levels and time choices to control the slew speed and decrease procedure electromagnetic interference (EMI). Each one the 6EDL7141 settings are easily altered with the accessible GUI.

Additionally, to Offer the Maximum level of system reliability from error states, the 6EDL7141 provides the following security attributes:

Over-Current Protection (OCP), in shunt or R DS(on), DVDD LDO OCP, dollar converter OCP (PCMC)
Under-Voltage Lockout (UVLO) on PVDD, gate driver provide, DVDD LDO
Temperature warning and shutdown
Configurable watchdog
Rotor locked detection according to hallway sensor inputs
Memory error


The EiceDRIVER 6EDL7141 motor control three-phase gate driver IC is available in a 7×7 mm² VQFN 48 pin package. Further information is available at

The product will be showcased at Infineon’s exhibitor platform at the 2021 Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), which will be held virtually from 14-17 June. More information about Infineon’s participation at APEC 2021 is available at
