Power Integrations introduced factory conformal coating for its SCALE™ IGBT and MOSFET drivers. Conformal coating enhances system reliability by protecting electronic components against contaminants such as pollution, dust and condensation, which may cause corrosion. PI’s factory-coated gate drivers reduce inventory cost, lead time and overall cost of ownership by eliminating the need for manufacturers to send boards to subcontractors for cleaning and coating.
Power Integrations today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Net revenues for the quarter were $103.1 million, a decrease of five percent from the prior quarter and a decrease of two percent from the first quarter of 2017. Net income for the quarter was $14.2 million or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.57 per share in the prior quarter and net income of $0.47 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2017. Cash flow from operations was $15.7 million for the quarter.
Design Example Report (DER-665) from Power Integrations demonstrates a 9V/5V, 2A Quick Charge 3.0 charger utilizing InnoSwitch3-CP, the industry’s first AC/DC IC with isolated and safety rated integrated feedback, in conjunction with ChiPhy USB Interface IC (CHY103). This design showcases the high power density and efficiency made possible by PI products’ high level of integration while delivering exceptional performance.
Power Integrations has announced the release of its InnoSwitch3-Pro family of configurable off-line CV/CC and CP flyback switcher ICs. Capable of delivering up to 65 W and achieving up to 94% efficiency across line and load conditions, the new devices permit precise, dynamically adjustable, control of voltage (10 mV step) and current (50 mA step), via a simple two-wire I2C interface.
On February 13th, Power Integrations will present a session at the ECPE Tutorial: Drivers and Control Circuitry for IGBTs and MOSFETs event in Bristol, UK. In it, we will discuss techniques to safely and effectively control both IGBT and MOSFET gates. You can find out more and register for this event on the ECPE website here.
