The steady 10-year growth of Green Power Switch has been prompted by an equally steady sequence of milestones and significant events, including:
Fairchild s new power switch is the only solution of its kind that provides Abnormal Over Current Protection (AOCP), which protects the power converter from transformer abnormalities and is particularly important for smart metering applications, said Gaurang Shah, Sr.
The combined engineering design expertise and low cost ISO-9002 Asian manufacturing allows both companies, MARTEK POWER SWITCH and MARTEK GROUP, to offer increased product capabilities to their US and European customers.
A key to its high efficiency as a power switch is the extremely low forward voltage drop (VTM) when in the conducting state, just 1.
Responding to customer needs for solutions that can provide lower standby power consumption and easier design in off-line power supplies, Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) has developed the only power switch in the industry that integrates drain-current sensing in a 650V internal avalanche-rugged SenseFET, reducing power dissipation and improving reliability by shortening the over-current time delay to less than 200 ns.
The AP21XX high-side power switch range has been created for USB port applications that require fast response, high accuracy over-current and over-temperature protection, such as HD televisions, set top boxes and PCs.
GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman -- O2Micro([R]) International Limited (NASDAQ:OIIM) (SEHK:0457), a leading supplier of innovative power management, and security components and systems, was issued 12 claims under United States patent number 7,365,454 for its Power Switch design.
Compared to typical designs, the new IC reduces PCB board space by 50 percent for Class D audio amplifiers up to 500W, while the MOSFETs reduce power switch part count of the Class D stage by 50 percent for the entire mid-voltage range of mid- and high-power amplifiers for home theatre applications, professional amplifiers, musical instruments and car entertainment.
