Equipped with a fast bootstrap diode and resistor, the components enable high efficiency in a compact construction. This makes them ideal for space-saving installations in consumer electronics as well as household appliances. They can also be used in fans, pumps, engines and forklifts. This family of driver ICs, designed for use with power semiconductors such as in the newest CoolMOS generation, exhibit improved switching behavior which reduces energy loss in a multitude of power applications.

With the introduction of the Compact products, we can offer an in-depth driver IC program that differentiates by application as well functionality. The EiceDriver Compact is aimed directly at the mass market in consumer as well as industrial areas, said Oliver Hellmund, responsible for marketing the EiceDRIVER at Infineon. Depending on current strength and packaging, the price per component ranges from 0.31 to 0.61 for orders of 10,000 units. Along with the Compact class, the EiceDRIVER family also includes the EiceDRIVER Safe, which is designed exclusively to meet high demand on security and reliability in the industrial market. The EiceDRIVER Enhanced class offers improved functionality in the industrial and, to a degree, the consumer markets.
