power integrations inc (POWI) Details

Power Integrations, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, and markets analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), and other electronic components and circuitry used in high-voltage power conversion. The company offers alternating current (AC)-direct current (DC) conversion products, including TOPSwitch, TinySwitch, and LinkSwitch that address power supplies ranging from less than 1 watt of output up to approximately 50 watts of output for mobile-device chargers, consumer appliances, utility meters, LCD monitors, standby power supplies for desktop computers and TVs, and other consumer and industrial applications. It also provides various products for use in applications up to approximately 500 watts of output, including main power supplies for desktop computers, TVs, and game consoles, as well as LED street lights and other applications. These products include Hiper family power-conversion and power-factor-correction products; CapZero and SenZero products that reduce standby consumption in high-power applications by eliminating power waste; and high-voltage diodes. In addition, the company offers IGBT-driver products under the SCALE and SCALE-2 product-family names; and monolithic high-voltage DC-DC power conversion ICs for use in power-over-Ethernet powered devices, such as voice-over-IP phones and security cameras, as well as network hubs, line cards, servers, digital PBX phones, DC-DC converter modules, and industrial controls. It serves consumer, communications, computer, consumer, and industrial electronics markets. The company sells its products to original equipment manufacturers and merchant power supply manufacturers directly and through a network of independent distributors worldwide. Power Integrations, Inc. was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in San Jose, California.

Power Integrations Inc. Introduces Driver Reference Designs for Cree Led Bulbs

Power Integrations Inc. announced the four reference designs describing drivers for dimmable PAR 30 and PAR 38 LED light bulbs. Jointly developed by Power Integrations and CREE, the designs showcase the combination of Power Integrations' LYTSwitch(TM)-4 driver ICs and CREE MT-G2 EasyWhite LEDs. DER-364 and DER-365 detail low- and high-line PAR 30 LED bulb drivers, respectively, while DER-350 and DER-396 address low- and high-line PAR 38 bulbs. LYTSwitch-4 ICs are highly efficient and deliver accurate output current regulation in bulb and tube replacement applications and high-bay lighting. The devices simplify design and reduce cost while ensuring that lamps deliver uniform light output and provide exceptional performance in TRIAC-dimmable applications. LYTSwitch-4 ICs combine PFC and constant current in a single-stage topology, resulting in power factor greater than 0.95 and typical efficiencies of better than 90%. The single-stage approach also eliminates temperature-sensitive electrolytic bulk capacitors, greatly increasing the bulbs' reliability and lifetime. LYTSwitch-4 ICs also operate at a high switching frequency (132-kHz), enabling smaller, lower-cost magnetics to be used, while frequency jittering reduces the need for EMI filtering. These factors combine to deliver LED-driver designs that fit easily into space-restricted bulbs. Designs based on the new drivers easily meet EN61000-3-2C regulations for total harmonic distortion (THD), and can achieve less than 10% THD. Regulation is better than +/- 5% across load and production spread, reducing the need for over-design to meet minimum luminance targets and cutting system cost. LYTSwitch-4 drivers deliver excellent dimming performance down to low conduction angles with or trailing-edge TRIAC dimmers. Start-up is very fast - typically less than 500 milliseconds even when dimmed to less than 10% light output - and pop-on is virtually eliminated.

Power Integrations Announces its LYTSwitch-2 Family of Isolated LED Drivers

Power Integrations announced its LYTSwitch-2 family of isolated LED drivers. The new IC family, which delivers up to 12 watts of accurately controlled output power, substantially reduces component count, resulting in simpler, smaller, more reliable LED lighting designs. LYTSwitch-2 LED-driver ICs use primary-side control, resulting in cost-effective, single-sided PCBs with low component counts. In addition, driver isolation allows the LEDs to be affixed directly to a metal heat sink, avoiding the added expense of an electrically isolating enclosure that is often required for non-isolated drivers. Accurate constant-current (CC) output tolerance across temperature (better than +/-5% at both low-line and high-line voltages) reduces the need to over-design systems in order to meet requirements such as the U.S. ENERGY STAR minimum-lumens-delivered specification. Designs using LYTSwitch-2 ICs are also highly efficient -- up to 90% in typical applications. LYTSwitch-2 ICs protect the LED load from surges in line voltage, increasing bulb lifetime in regions where the mains voltage is subject to frequent peaks. The constant-current and constant-voltage (CC/CV) control function maintains a constant voltage on the output of the driver during no-load operation, preventing damage to the output filter or shutting down the driver when being tested or installed with no LED string connected. LYTSwitch-2 LED-driver ICs feature over-temperature, over-current and open feedback-loop protection and are simple to design in using Power Integrations' PI Expert design software. Devices are packaged in small, cost-efficient SO-8 packages as well as MSOP and eSIP packages for efficient thermal transfer in higher-power applications. LYTSwitch-2 IC pricing starts at 0.52 for SO-8 devices in 10K quantities.
