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
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.
