PI Expert Suite design software
Power Integration’s PI Expert Suite Version 8.5 is a piece of power supply design productivity software that is compatible with the company’s HiperLCS range of high-frequency LLC converter ICs and its TOPSwitch-JX series of integrated offline switcher ICs.
The software can simplify design processes by producing a complete schematic of the power supply and features a power transformer design and a wide range of materials.
The latest version also includes thermal calculations for improved heatsink performance and provides PCB layout recommendations for the selected device and package type.
Additionally, an updated library of components includes fuses, fusible resistors, shunt regulators, optocouplers, and heatsinks.
Key product features
- Available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions
- 64-bit version features a larger system memory and faster processor speeds
- The suite is available in English, traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Russian languages
- Transformer prototypes resulting from the use of this software can be ordered through Power Integrations’ Rapid Transformer Sample Service
This report from Power Integrations describes the design for a non-isolated, universal-input, 12V, 350mA CV/CC power supply for LED driver applications, utilising a LNK605DG device from the Linkswitch-II range.
The HiperTFS series of efficient integrated offline switcher ICs from Power Integrations is suitable for PC main and standby applications.
This application note from Power Integrations is targeted at engineers using the Linkswitch-PL series of monolithic offline switcher ICs to design isolated or non-isolated AC-to-DC power supplies driving a constant-current LED load.
This application note from Power Integrations is intended for engineers designing isolated AC/DC LED drivers using the Linkswitch-PH range of integrated monolithic switching ICs.
The Capzero series of self-powered ICs from Power Integrations is designed to reduce the losses associated with the input filter capacitor discharge resistors when the AC voltage is present.
