CAPZero-2 IC Safely Discharges X Capacitors up to 6 µF

Power Integrations today announced CAPZero™-2 ICs, the next generation of its CAPZero line of innovative, two-terminal, X capacitor discharge ICs. CAPZero-2 ICs increase design flexibility by covering a wide range of applications and output power. Featuring an expanded X capacitor range from 0.1 µF to 6 µF, a rating of 1 kV breakdown voltage which allows for a transient voltage capability of 6 kV, CAPZero-2 ICs withstand severe line surges and swells.

Power Integrations Simplifies Design of Industrial PSUs for 440-VAC Line Input

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.

1200 V Dual-Channel Gate-Driver Core From Power Integrations Eliminates Opto-Couplers

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.
