Richardson RFPD, Inc., a global leader in the power conversion market, has announced an agreement with Power Integrations to serve as a worldwide distributor for PI's SCALE™ IGBT drivers for the high-power market, as well as its new SCALE-iDriver™ integrated circuits.
Power Integrations’ family of SCALE gate drivers reduce component count, enhance efficiency, and improve reliability. The new family of SCALE-iDriver ICs are galvanically-isolated single-channel gate driver ICs that provide the industry’s highest output current without an external booster.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) describing minimum efficiency levels for uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs). The UPS proposal is an offshoot of the DOE's recently published battery charger efficiency standard. If adopted, the standard will affect UPS products manufactured in, or imported into, the United States.
