PI's LED Driver ICs Eliminate Electrolytic Capacitors, Exceed 90% Efficiency and 0.9 Power Factor

Power Integrations today announced a new reference design (DER-278) based on the company's single-stage LinkSwitch-PH LED-driver IC family. The new design eliminates the need for unreliable electrolytic capacitors and opto-isolators, making it especially well suited for high-reliability industrial, commercial, and exterior solid-state lighting (SSL) applications. Suitable for designs from 5 W to 55 W, SSL driver ballasts based on LinkSwitch-PH ICs achieve greater than 90% energy efficiency and satisfy the ENERGY STAR® requirement of >0.9 power factor.
