Power Integrations today announced a new reference design (DER-479) demonstrating an industrial power supply using the company's LinkSwitch-4™ family of CV/CC primary-side regulated (PSR) switcher ICs with a 1200 V bipolar junction transistor (BJT). The design supports 440 VAC line inputs and features three outputs which combine to provide up to 11 W of highly accurate constant-voltage DC power.
Power Integrations, the leader in IGBT driver technology, today launched its 2SC0115T2A0-12 dual-channel gate-driver core for 90 kW to 500 kW inverters and converters. Leveraging SCALE™-2+ integrated circuit and isolated transformer technology for DC/DC power and switching signal transmission, the new IGBT driver core improves system reliability and performance by eliminating the need for an opto-coupler.
In his latest blog, Mr. Green takes a look at recent modifications to the ENERGY STAR spec for displays. Energy consumption, performance requirements, and product definitions area few of the things that have changed. For further details, visit the Green Room.
