Power Integrations has published Version 10.0 of its popular power supply design productivity software, PI Expert™ Suite. This latest release adds support for the company's new InnoSwitch3™ family of 94%-efficient offline flyback switcher ICs, as well as a new Design Wizard incorporating PI's product portfolio.
Power Integrations today introduced the newest member of its SCALE-iDriver™ IC family, SID1102K, a single-channel, isolated, IGBT and MOSFET gate driver in a wide-body eSOP package. Featuring a peak drive current of up to 5 A, the new part is able to drive 300 A switches without boosters; external boosters can be used to cost-effectively scale gate current up to 60 A peak. This device provides N-channel drive for both the low and high side booster MOSFET switches which reduces system cost, minimizes switching losses and increases power capability.
The California Energy Commission (CEC) has recently reviewed computer efficiency regulations that will soon go into effect. A webinar conducted by the CEC’s Efficiency Division staff, covered the definitions, test methods, performance requirements, reporting requirements, and the certification process for high-expandability computers, mobile and rack-mounted workstations, and small-scale servers.
This new video by Power Integrations illustrates a Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) wall switch compatible with no-neutral wiring. The design is based on Power Integrations’ LinkSwitch™-TN2 offline switcher ICs which incorporate a 725 V rated power MOSFET and have a quiescent consumption of less than 75 µA.
Power Integrations, the leader in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient power conversion, announced the opening of a new location in Penang, Malaysia. The facility will serve as a production-support and R&D center as well as an operations hub from which the company will manage its Asian supply chain.
