Power Integrations Inc. Launches New Reference Design for High-Power LED-Lighting Applications

Power Integrations Inc. announced a new reference design for LED streetlights, high-bay lights and other high-power LED-lighting applications. The new design, RDR-382, describes a constant current, 43 V (nominal), 150 W reference power supply for 90-265 VAC solid-state lighting, utilizing Power Integrations HiperPFS -2 PFC controller ICs and HiperLCS(TM) integrated LLC power stage ICs. Traditional dual-stage drivers with separate PFC and LLC stages produce a constant-voltage (CV) output requiring multiple DC-DC converters to convert the output to constant current (CC). In contrast, RDR-382 uses a novel feedback and control scheme which enables the LLC to provide constant current directly at the output. As a result, component count is cut by approximately one-third, efficiency is increased to > 93 %, and the elimination of the DC-DC converter stage significantly reduces size. Additionally, the high nominal LLC switching frequency (250 kHz) reduces the size of the required magnetics, while the use of a continuous-conduction-mode, variable-frequency PFC stage reduces EMI compared to fixed-frequency alternatives.

Power Integrations Revolutionizes Switch-Mode Power-Supply Design by Launching the InnoSwitch Family of Switcher ICs

Power Integrations Inc. announced a new class of power-supply ICs. The InnoSwitch(TM) family of highly integrated switcher ICs combines primary, secondary and feedback circuits into a single, worldwide safety-rated, surface-mount package. With InnoSwitch ICs, designers can easily exceed all global regulatory standards for efficiency and no-load consumption, while minimizing component count and providing highly accurate constant voltage and constant current up to 25 W. The InnoSwitch family is ideal for smart mobile device chargers and adapters for a wide range of applications such as set-top boxes, networking equipment and computer peripherals. Inside the new device, highly accurate secondary-side direct voltage and current measurements are communicated across the safety isolation barrier using high-speed digital FluxLink(TM) technology. This proprietary new feedback technique permits precise control without the need for a bulky optocoupler, while avoiding the performance compromises inherent in primary-side regulation (PSR), such as limited accuracy and efficiency and poor transient response versus no-load consumption. Furthermore, unlike primary-side regulated switchers, InnoSwitch-based secondary-side regulated (SSR) designs are inherently less sensitive to the tolerance of external components such as transformers, diodes, resistors and capacitors. This dramatically increases manufacturing yield and reduces total power supply cost. Now, mobile device chargers up to 5 A can have a total component count as low as PSR designs, with accurate CV and CC control (+/- 3% and +/- 5% respectively) and low voltage ripple. With high operating efficiency and <10 mW no-load consumption, the ICs easily comply with efficiency standards such as the California Energy Commission, European Union Code of Conduct (CoC) Version 5, Tier 2, and the upcoming US Department of Energy standards (DoE 6), which will become mandatory in February, 2016. InnoSwitch power-supply ICs include a high-voltage power MOSFET, primary-side controller, FluxLink feedback technology and a secondary-side controller with synchronous rectification (SR). By combining the SR function with the secondary-side master controller and by leveraging the speed of the FluxLink communication channel, the SR switch timing is optimized for maximum efficiency. The fast communication link also ensures highly reliable SR operation, eliminating shoot-through in either discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) or continuous conduction mode (CCM), even during transient loads and fault conditions. Effective SR operation in both DCM and CCM modes is especially beneficial in adaptive-voltage charger applications. InnoSwitch ICs start up using bias current drawn from a high-voltage current source connected to the DRAIN pin, eliminating the need for external start-up components. An external bias winding reduces no-load and increases system efficiency during normal operation. The ICs also include comprehensive system-level features such as output over-voltage protection, overload power limiting, hysteretic thermal protection and frequency jitter to reduce EMI.
