DER-287 reference design
Power Integrations has published the DER-287 reference design for a 25W LED T8 tube ballast power supply designed to reach 91 per cent efficiency and to be used in commercial and industrial lighting.
The DER-287 is a single-stage converter built around LNK409EG, from the Linkswitch-PH family of LED driver ICs, and meets commercial requirements for power factor (PF greater than 0.9) and harmonic distortion (EN61000-3-2 Class C).
According to Power Integrations, single-stage technology increases product lifetime by eliminating the opto-isolators and large aluminium electrolytic input bulk capacitors required by conventional two-stage solutions.
The single-stage IC DER-287 has a monolithic design that combines controller, driver, switching MOSFETs and protection features into a single package, meaning that implementation requires very few external components — which is beneficial to compact T8 tube enclosures.
The Linkswitch-PH video, data sheet, application notes, and other design examples are available on the company’s website.

Power Integrations has launched the CAPZero-2 ICs, the next generation of its CAPZero line of two-terminal, X capacitor discharge ICs. CAPZero-2 ICs increase design flexibility by covering a wide range of applications and output power.
Power Integrations has launched the 2SC0115T2A0-12 dual-channel gate-driver core for 90kW to 500kW inverters and converters. Leveraging SCALE-2 integrated circuit and isolated transformer technology for DC/DC power and switching signal transmission, the new driver core improves system reliability and performance by eliminating the need for an optocoupler.
DER-479 demonstrates an industrial power supply using the LinkSwitch-4 series of CV/CC primary-side regulated switcher ICs with a 1,200V bipolar junction transistor.
Power Integrations has announced the arrival of the RDK-420, a reference design kit for a 10W CV/CC USB charger based on the company’s InnoSwitch-CH family of highly integrated switcher ICs. InnoSwitch ICs combine the primary-side switch together with primary and secondary controllers and feedback circuits into a single, worldwide safety-rated, surface-mount package.
Power Integrations has launched its latest SCALE-2+ dual-IGBT driver core, the 2SC0435T2G1-17, which is described as the most compact product in its power range with a footprint of only 57.2 x 51.6mm and a height of just 20mm.
