InnoCit LLC provides UL-compliant PCB design for analog and digital circuitry including embedded logic controllers, analog signal shaping, electrical and optical communication interfaces, power-on-board PCB-based converter design, magnetics-on-board planar magnetics, and high current PCBs to substitute laminated dc-bus structures.
InnoCit LLC utilizes the latest in switch technologies including GaN and SiC devices in addition to the latest in controller and DSP technologies including TI floating-point controllers and Intel FPGAs to design a state-of-the-art solution for our clients.
InnoCit LLC provides a state-of-the-art controller design service including the design of traditional controllers (PID), optimal and model predictive controllers, and reinforcement learning-based adaptive controllers. InnoCit LLC has multiple IP on advanced learning based controllers for motor drives, adaptive dynamic programming schemes for virtual-inertia-based grid-tied inverters, and learning-based hybrid models for prediction algorithms and motor drives.
InnoCit LLC provides embedded logic programing services for a variety of power conversion applications including motor drives and power supplies. As a part of the agreement, InnoCit delivers the developed software to its clients with details on all libraries and algorithms used.
InnoCit offers testing services for electrical circuitry, converter repair, and debugging. We provide mixed-signal testing and spectrum analysis for up to 1GHz.
InnoCit provides low volume manufacturing services for a low number of prototypes. We have an in-house SMD pick-and-place/manufacturing line, soldering stations, coil winding machines, and mechanical installation services.
We offer in-house mechanical design and prototyping services for converter enclosures including Aluminum CNC and TIG welding, heatsink shaping, and installations. For larger projects, we utilize our local machining partner here in Saint James, Missouri.
We offer vibration testing services for automotive converters. We support testing up to 1000Hz and 40G.
InnoCit LLC provides finite-element-model-based (FEM) liquid- and air-cooled heatsinks for stationary and automotive applications. Thermal design will be done in parallel with the converter design to optimize the size of the cooling system, consider the operating conditions, and maximize the utilization of switches. FEM results will be provided to clients for further analysis. Studies will include thermal performance, placement of components, flow rates, and pressure drop.
All designed heatsinks will undergo testing to ensure an agreement between FEM analysis and measured data. For liquid cooled systems, the cooling performance will be investigated at different inlet flow rates and temperature.
Reliability studies are provided using our environmental chambers with thermal cycling, humidity studies (IPxx verification), salt spray, and electrical surges. We can provide on-line environmental testing on operating converters.
InnoCit LLC offers design and prototyping services for custom-made converters ranging from watts to 2MW and up to 12.4kV. The design and prototyping agreements include electrical/mechanical/thermal design, controller and software development, electrical/mechanical hardware prototyping, testing, and delivery of all documents and IP rights. The converter shown above is a 6-phase 1MW water-cooled inverter custom-designed for DOE ARPA-E.
InnoCit LLC offers the design and development of automotive converters as well. Automotive converters will be designed to meet the automotive shock and thermal requirements. Both standard and heavy duty automotive converters are supported by our team. Near manufacturing-ready and high TRL prototypes are offered as well. The converter shown above is a 150kW 700A prototype of an automotive drive available for purchase.
We offer miniaturized and modular converter design for specialty applications including gate driver power supplies, supplies used in aerospace, and rack/chassis based power supplies. Converters include 2-level and multi-level inverters, resonant and high gain dc-dc converters, ripple-canceling converters, specialty topologies, and switched capacitor topologies.
