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.

STMicroelectronics exhibits Its "Smart-Life" solutions at Techno-Frontier 2014
July 28, 2014
Tokyo / 22 Jul 2014 Next-generation power-delivery solutions As a next-generation means of power supply, wireless charging is a fast-growing field within the electronic appliance industry. At TECHNO-FRONTIER 2014, ST will demonstrate wireless charging using advanced digital power-controller IC that enables compliance with the Qi standard from WPC 1. ST's digital power-controller IC, which integrates a microprocessor core and peripheral circuits for power-supply control, contributes to reduced bill-of-materials costs by meeting all Qi specifications in a single chip. In the demonstration, the voltage and frequency status of a power supply from a power-transmitting board to a power-receiving device can be displayed on a screen. As mobile-device charging over USB becomes widespread, a new specification called USB Power Delivery (USB PD) has been developed to enable USB-based power supplies for electronic devices with higher power consumption, including laptop PC s and displays. The ST demo will show USB power delivery between boards using a USB PD-compliant controller IC. ST's USB PD controller IC uses the USB PD protocol to look up receiving-side and transmitting-side power profiles to achieve optimal power-supply volume (maximum 100 W) for target devices.
