Power Integrations Announces HiperPFSTM-3 Family of Power Factor Correction ICs

Power Integrations announced its HiperPFSTM-3 family of power factor correction ICs, which offer high power factor and high efficiency across the entire load range. Targeting applications with continuous power demands up to 405 W for universal input and 900 W for high-line, the ICs feature efficiency levels of better than 95% from 10% load to full load and consume less than 60 mW under no-load conditions. A power factor of above 0.92 is easily achievable at 20% load. The highly integrated HiperPFS-3 devices include the variable frequency CCM controller, high-voltage power MOSFET and a Qspeed™ low QRR boost diode. The new devices also employ an innovative means of controlling EMI without adversely affecting power factor at light loads. Poor system power factor at light load is caused by X capacitors that are used to reduce differential mode EMI being fed back to the AC line. HiperPFS-3 ICs incorporate a digital power factor-enhancing circuit that activates during light load conditions; this increases the compensation to overcome the reactance of X capacitors in the EMI filter, minimizing the phase angle difference between the input voltage and the current. Consequently, designers may increase the size of the X capacitors while minimizing or eliminating differential-mode chokes, thereby reducing EMI without degrading light load power factor performance. This results in a smaller, lower cost, EMI filter stage. Available for both high and low-line applications, HiperPFS-3 ICs cover a continuous output power up to 900 W. Thermally efficient eSIP-16 packaging simplifies heat sink mounting. Devices cost $1.27 in 10,000 piece quantities.

Fairchild Semiconductor International Wins $2.4 million in Damages from Patent Lawsuit Against Power Integrations

Fairchild Semiconductor International announced it was awarded $2.4 million in damages from a patent-infringement lawsuit against Power Integrations (POWI). A jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware found that Power Integrations infringed a Fairchild U.S. Patent by continuing to market and sell its LinkSwitch II range of products and awarded damages representing approximately $0.015 per unit royalty on LinkSwitch II parts imported into the U.S. The two companies have been engaged in patent litigation since 2004.

Power Integrations Announces CAPZero-2 ICs, the Next Generation of its CAPZero Line of Innovative, Two-Terminal, X Capacitor Discharge ICs

Power Integrations announced CAPZero-2 ICs, the next generation of its CAPZero line of innovative, two-terminal, X capacitor discharge ICs. CAPZero-2 ICs increase design flexibility by covering a wide range of applications and output power. Featuring an expanded X capacitor range from 0.1 µF to 6 µF, a rating of 1 kV breakdown voltage which allows for a transient voltage capability of 6 kV, CAPZero-2 ICs withstand severe line surges and swells. CAPZero-2 ICs are smart, high-voltage switches that significantly reduce no-load and standby input power consumption. Placed in series with resistors that provide a safe discharge path for a power supply's X capacitor, CAPZero-2 devices block current flow to the discharge resistors when AC voltage is applied, cutting the power wasted in these components to zero. When the AC voltage is disconnected, the CAPZero-2 switch automatically and safely discharges the X capacitor by closing the circuit and directing the energy away from the exposed AC plug. Comments Edward Ong, product marketing manager at Power Integrations: With the introduction of new CAPZero-2 ICs, power supply designers only need to qualify one part number for all their X capacitor discharge IC applications. This increases design flexibility and speeds time-to-market while reducing the resources required to qualify devices. CAPZero-2 X capacitor discharge ICs eliminate a key source of power losses while allowing power supplies to comply with IEC 62368-1, the new over-arching safety standard covering a broad segment of energy-using equipment. The new standard replaces IEC 60950 and IEC 60065, and will shortly become mandatory. Because CAPZero-2 devices are safety-certified to CB and Nemko requirements, developers do not need to perform a separate capacitive discharge safety test of the power circuit.
