Infineon and Swoboda Collaborate on Advanced Automotive Current Sensor Modules

Infineon and Swoboda have formed a partnership to develop and market advanced current sensor modules tailored for automotive applications.

Infineon Technologies AG and Swoboda have formed a partnership to develop and market advanced current sensor modules tailored for automotive applications, specifically targeting the rapidly growing market of sensing solutions for hybrid and electric vehicles. This collaboration merges Infineon’s leading current sensor integrated circuits (ICs) with Swoboda’s expertise in sensor module development and industrialization. Their joint efforts aim to expedite the time-to-market for high-volume applications, including traction inverters and battery management systems, while also addressing other essential automotive applications. The initial product from this collaboration, the Swoboda CSM510HP2, features a compact, fully encapsulated current sensor module that maintains high performance. Utilizing Infineon’s TLE4973 coreless current sensor IC, it achieves high precision with a total error below 2 percent and is designed for seamless integration with Infineon’s HybridPACK™ Drive G2 power module, thus eliminating the need for separate external current sensors and facilitating the creation of the most compact traction inverters available.
