Renesas Product and Technology Demonstrations

  *Scalable 3 Phase AC Motor Drive Platform: This interactive demo will
    showcase a complete, scalable, AC/BLDC motor drive hardware + software
    evaluation platform with a front end dual interleaved AC-DC PFC stage, and
    a 3 phase inverter bridge, implemented by high efficiency IGBTs and FRDs.
    A high performance 32-bit MCU (RX62T) enables implementation of algorithms
    for high efficiency motor drives in applications such as air-conditioners,
    and industrial motor drives by providing a complete proven system solution
  *Thin Wafer IGBT with 70µm Thickness: The newest IGBTs from Renesas will be
    on display. These are based on the enhanced Thin Wafer trench HiGT (High
    conductivity IGBT) technology enabling high efficiency solutions in
    industrial applications such as motor drives and solar inverters.
  *120V to 24V AC: AC Converter: This demonstration will showcase a compact
    reference design with fault protection to meet output voltage 24VAC with
    2A(rms) continuous output current for building automation applications
    such as emergency lighting and irrigation systems.
  *Renesas will also be showcasing its innovative optical image stabilization
    solution and its award-winning near field communication (NFC) charger
