Featured product: OptiMOS™ 5 150 V power MOSFET (IPB048N15N5)


  • perfectly suitable for low voltage drives such as service robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs)
  • lower RDS(on) (up to 25% compared to the next best alternative in SuperSO8) and Qrr
  • not compromising FOMgd and FOMoss
  • with an ultra-low reverse recovery charge (Qrr= 26 nC in SuperSO8) commutation ruggedness is increased
  • reduced paralleling, smaller size, improved EMI behavior




Service robotics and automated guided vehicles (AGVs)

The reason why we call ourselves a one-stop robotics shop is our seemingly endless portfolio of everything that one may need for developing, prototyping, building, and testing robotics applications. Service robotics and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are two out of four categories Infineon provides innovative robotics solutions for. Hence, we consider it part of our responsibility to constantly keeping up with latest trends (AI, HMI, wireless power, non-stop connectivity, IoT, smart homes, etc.).
