Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs for railway electric propulsion systems help you create high-performance traction inverters with accurate control, multi-protocol train communication interfaces, robust isolation and EMC immunity for high reliability.

Design requirements

Railway electric propulsion systems often require:

  • Robust, isolated IGBT/SiC field-effect transistor gate drives with integrated protection and high CMTI.
  • High-performance, real-time processing for accurate torque control.
  • Robust train communication networks for highly-reliable interconnect.
  • High-efficiency power management solutions with strict regulation.
