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 introduced the HiperPFS-3 series of power-factor-correction ICs. The ICs are designed to offer high power factor and high efficiency across the entire load range. Suitable for applications with continuous power demands up to 405W for universal input and 900W for high line, the ICs feature efficiency levels of better than 95 per cent from 10 per cent load to full load and consume less than 60mW under no-load conditions. A power factor of above 0.92 is easily achievable ...
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.
