Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc. Announces FL7733A Single Stage Primary-Side-Regulated Flyback LED Driver
Nov 13 14
Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. announced the FL7733A Single Stage Primary-Side-Regulated (PSR) Flyback LED Driver for delivering constant brightness and instant flicker-free turn-on of LED lighting. The new low-power LED lighting driver is built for a variety of 5W to over 60W, indoor and outdoor LED applications so that designers can easily overcome the challenge of meeting global standards and regulations for LED lighting with a single, scalable solution. The FL7733As, a key component of Fairchild's overall LED solutions that reduce component BOM, enable smaller lamp sizes, eliminate design complexities, is ideal for SSL downlights, PAR, A19 bulb applications. With the new driver, designers can: Easily meet global standards with <10% total harmonic distortion (THD) and protection functions. Simplify supply chain with one solution supporting >60 W designs with thermal management and short circuit protection mode. Ensure maximum compatibility with High Voltage LED modules with an ultra wide output voltage range of 10% - 100%. Deliver flicker-free constant brightness over wide operating range with < +/-3% constant current tolerance and < 0.2 second start up performance. Enable compatibility with a variety of LED modules with output driving power of over 60W, twice that of competing solutions. The best-in-class THD of less than 10% at universal line voltage conditions is significantly less that the 30% THD that makes up most regional regulations. This gives designers plenty of headroom to scale product offerings for various regions of the world. In addition, the FL7733A uses dual over voltage protection (OVP) to meet UL SELV under 60 V output regulations.
Fairchild Announces 1200V Motion SPM(R) 2 Modules
Nov 12 14
Fairchild announced its 1200V Motion SPM(R) 2 modules for customers building high-voltage industrial applications. With motors responsible for more than 40% of the world's power consumption, the new Smart Power Modules deliver on Fairchild's vision of making the world a cleaner, smarter place by enabling simple and reliable design, extremely high thermal performance and full protection for systems using large 3-phase inverter motors for high energy efficiency. Fairchild's latest Smart Power Modules (SPM) integrate critical power management silicon components to help reduce board space and heatsink sizes, resulting in a compact, all-in-one solution for up to 7.5kW, high-voltage designs. Fairchild used the same Direct Bonding Copper (DBC) packaging technologies originally developed for space applications to deliver a junction-to-case thermal resistance that is 15% lower than competing solutions. It also improves overall system reliability for much smoother motor control functions in products such as industrial-grade heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment, as well as pumps and factory automation systems. Fairchild is exhibiting at Electronica 2014 in Munich, Germany from Nov. 11, 2014 to Nov. 14, 2014 in Booth A4.506. In a single, rugged package, the Motion SPM(R) 2 series for 1200V 3-phase inverter designs with currents of up to 35A integrates the following: 1200V NPT Trench IGBTs; Bootstrap Diodes; low-voltage and High-voltage Driver ICs; NTC Thermister; full protection suite. 10A devices (FNA21012A) are available in full production now. 25A and 35A devices are scheduled for full production release at the end of fourth quarter of 2014.
Fairchild Launches New FSL4110LR Integrated Power Switch
Nov 11 14
Fairchild launched the first 1000V integrated power switch, offering the higher breakdown voltage in a single package for designing highly reliable switching mode power supplies for smart meter, appliance and industrial systems. The new FSL4110LR integrated power switch eliminates the need for external components found in competing solutions, enabling power designers to easily meet their time to market and reduce bill of materials. The FSL4110LR integrates a VDMOS SenseFET (BVDSS=1000V) with built in line compensation for wide input voltage range from 45Vac to 460Vac. It also includes built-in input over voltage protection and a safe auto-restart mode for all protection conditions. Fairchild is exhibiting at Electronica 2014 in Munich, Germany from November 11 to 14 in Booth A4.506.
