San Jose, Calif. - Power Integrations' DAK-33 is a design accelerator kit for ac/dc flyback supplies that powers LCD monitors and TVs. It's intended to cut energy losses and speed design time for designs using the company's energy-efficient EcoSmart technology and its TOPSwitch-GX high-voltage power conversion ICs. The kit contains a 45-watt power supply adapter, the company's PI Expert design software, TOPSwitch-GX samples and extensive design tools. The resulting supplies, which can also be used in computer peripherals, home appliances and other 45-W applications, deliver 83 percent efficiency at full power. In standby mode, the adapter draws less than 1 W (less than 0.5 W to the load).
The DAK-33 is priced at $45.95 and is available now through the company's Web site. A model for 30-W applications, the DAK-34, is priced at $31.95.
