This new video by Power Integrations illustrates a Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) wall switch compatible with no-neutral wiring. The design is based on Power Integrations’ LinkSwitch™-TN2 offline switcher ICs which incorporate a 725 V rated power MOSFET and have a quiescent consumption of less than 75 µA.
Power Integrations, the leader in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient power conversion, announced the opening of a new location in Penang, Malaysia. The facility will serve as a production-support and R&D center as well as an operations hub from which the company will manage its Asian supply chain.
Power Integrations today announced the release of its InnoSwitch™3 family of offline CV/CC flyback switcher ICs. The new devices achieve up to 94% efficiency across line and load conditions, slashing power supply losses by a further 25% and enabling the development of compact power supplies up to 65 W without heatsinks. InnoSwitch3 devices are ideal for power supplies with challenging energy consumption, footprint or thermal constraints, particularly those targeting mandatory Total Energy Consumption (TEC) specifications.
The proposed eligibility requirements for the ENERGY STAR® 2018 Most Efficient program are now available for review. The program, now in its 7th year, promotes the most efficient products in fourteen specific product categories.
