EcoSmart technology intelligently manages the flow of power into a device's power supply, resulting in dramatic energy savings compared to older power supply technologies. Consumers and businesses have saved billions on their electricity bills since 1998 by using products containing Power Integrations' EcoSmart ICs. These savings equate to approximately 30 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, an amount which, if produced by coal-burning power plants, would have resulted in approximately 20 million tons of carbon emissions – roughly equal to the annual emissions of three million automobiles.
