Power Integrations releases energy-efficient standby power supply reference designs using TOPSwitch-JX
Power Integrations releases energy-efficient standby power supply reference designs using TOPSwitch-JX.
Two new standby power supply reference designs have been released by Power Integrations, using its recently announced TOPSwitch-JX IC product family.
TOPSwitch-JX devices feature multi-mode control, minimising power wasted in standby and delivering maximum efficiency over a wide range of operating loads. The new reference designs target applications that require more than 90% full-load efficiency to meet such standards as the 80 PLUS Gold or Silver PC specifications, EuP Lot 6 standby rules, or the new Californian requirements for TV power usage.
DER-246 is a general-purpose evaluation platform and describes a PC standby power supply based on TOPSwitch-JX TOP265EG that operates from 110V DC to 400V DC input and provides >91% efficiency at 12V, 15W.
DER-247, based on TOPSwitch-JX TOP264EG, describes a supply for a similar application operating from 110V DC to 400V DC input and providing >87% efficiency at 5V, 10W.
For TV and other consumer products, the designs make 20mW available to the load for just 100mW of input power.
TOPSwitch-JX is a highly integrated family of 16 power conversion ICs incorporating a 725V power MOSFET for use in flyback power supplies. The TOPSwitch-JX multi-mode control algorithm maximises power efficiency across the entire load range. High efficiency at full power minimises power wasted during normal operation and reduces the complexity and expense of thermal management on the system. At low power levels, high efficiency enables adapters with extremely low no-load consumption and maximises power available to the system in standby mode for applications constrained by standards and regulatory controls.
David New, Product Marketing Manager at Power Integrations, comments: “More and more power supply designs require very good light-load efficiency performance and, with PC power supplies moving to the 80 PLUS Silver and Gold specifications, the PC-standby portion of the design needs to be exceptionally efficient all the way from light load to full load. The innovative control technique and power MOSFET technology of TOPSwitch-JX allows it to deliver the performance needed for 80 PLUS Gold designs, saving component cost in other portions of the PC power supply.”
