Power Integrations Launches TinySwitch™-4
Power Integrations today introduced the TinySwitch-4 family, the latest generation of its industry-leading TinySwitch series of off-line switcher ICs. Featuring line-compensated overload power protection, TinySwitch-4 devices dramatically reduce the maximum overload power that can be delivered into the load over the entire AC input voltage range. The devices incorporate a 725 V MOSFET that easily allows 80 percent de-rating for high reflected voltage and high bus-voltage designs. Efficiency of greater than 70 percent at five percent load enables designers to meet the stringent European standby specifications scheduled to take effect in 2013, while no-load power consumption of less than 30 mW at 230 VAC meets critical energy-saving requirements in the market today.
