During the years I&M materialized its experience gained providing services to various customers into a set of commercial products, ranging from electric traction to body control, from data logging to equipment for lab testing and characterization.
The pace of electrification for all types of vehicles is rapidly accelerating. Depending on the type of vehicle, the application and the electric drive used, the requirements for voltage, power, thermal management, form factor, package, motor control algorithms and power electronics technology vary dramatically. If you do not find the specific expertise for your project in-house or if your internal resources are not available to meet your time schedule, contact I&M. I&M's highly experienced engineering team will help you to identify the best technical and commercial solution for your specific project. I&M can offer you the complete HW and SW solution or only individual components. We listen and discuss together with you the best approach to make your project an outstanding commercial success. Contact and challenge us!
I&M's inverters are designed to drive all types of electric motors including BLDC, PMSM, asynchronous, synchronous reluctance, axial or transversal flux. Full access to motor control parameters and torque mapping. Flexible support of position sensors and interfaces including digital hall sensors, analogue sensors with single-ended or differential outputs, encoders, and digital sensors with serial outputs. Support of motor temperature sensors. In case you do not have access to the detailed technical motor specification, I&M offers to characterize the motor for you on our in-house test bench.
Optimized Motor Algorithms
I&M's motor specialists support your motor project with motor control algorithms optimized for your application including but not limited to Field Oriented Control (FOC), Six Step or Direct Flux. Our algorithms guarantee highest performance and maximum torque under all operating conditions and speeds with Full Field Weakening and Maximum Torque per Ampere (MTPA) support. High energy efficiency due to recuperative braking option.
High Efficiency Power Electronics In All Performance Classes
I&M's is in the unique position to have access to all state of the art semiconductor power technologies from leading semiconductor manufacturers including silicon MOSFETs, IGBTs, GaN FETs, and SiC devices. This allows us always to select the optimum technology for your application - across the entire voltage range from 48V to 800V and from a few kW to hundreds of kW peak power demand. Advanced PWM technology with variable switching frequencies ensure efficient use of battery voltage, minimizes switching losses, motor harmonics and torque ripple.
Complete HW and SW System Solutions
I&M's does not only take care of the HW and SW to control a single motor. Depending on your requirements we can build complete solutions for you. Options I&M has previously integrated for customers with the motor control HW/SW are: dual inverters for electrified axels, vehicle management units, body controller, support of different driving modes, battery surveillance, diagnostic functions, safety strategies or customized package solutions.
Flexible Business Models
I&M understands that speed, reliable technology and cost effectiveness are key when you want to transform your idea to a successful business model. We take pride to support customers of all sizes - from start-ups to globally acting enterprises - in this challenge. Talk to us about your preferred business model. I&M can offer you the complete bandwidth from chip to system for both HW and SW. You define which elements you would like I&M to provide for you. Also the integration of your own, differentiating IP is no problem.
Automotive Quality Manufacturing Option
I&M optionally offers to organize the procurement and manufacturing of your project for you. Based on a long standing, successful relationship with the automotive certified manufacturing partner MTM/BRC, I&M can supply you with prototypes, pre-series and/or series production volumes. I&M and MTM/BRC understand that also for small and mid size volumes, product cost needs to be competitive. Therefore we have specialized to make small (100 sample/year) to mid size (10.000 sample/year) volumes commercially highly attractive.
The Sully family of ECUs is designed to enable flexible communication between different systems and/or data logging in various environment, like industrial or automotive. Their high level of customizability, both at HW and SW level, allows to implement exactly the functionalities needed at an optimal cost.
Compatible with multiple CAN data rate able to operate as bridge, gateway, or filter, depending on customer needs.
Various configuration modes to optimize power consumption.
