ON Semiconductor Offers Integrated Switching Regulators to Enable High Efficiency Offline Power Converters for Consumer Applications; Integrated 650 volt avalanche-rated MOSFETs enable robust, compact switching solutions for power-hungry applications such as household appliances, DVD players and set top boxes
July 28, 2014
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN ), driving energy efficient innovations, has added three new current mode, fixed frequency switching regulators to its expansive power management product portfolio. Targeted at use in compact, high reliability offline AC-DC switched-mode power supplies, the NCP1129, NCP1126, and NCP1124 incorporate an avalanche-rated 650 volt (V) MOSFET and frequency foldback along with skip mode that improve the light load and standby efficiency, meeting the ENERGY STAR® EPS 2.0 Standard. The high degree of integration results in minimal external components and significantly reduces the overall bill of materials, making them highly suited to power system designs for household appliances, DVD players and set top boxes. The NCP1129, NCP1126, and NCP1124 can deliver up to 25 W, 15 W and 12 W respectively and each generate a jittered 65 kilo Hertz (kHz) or 100 kHz switching frequency, resulting in marked improvements in electro-magnetic interference (EMI) performance.
