Power Integrations (www.powerint.com) will showcase its latest innovations in high-voltage power conversion integrated circuits (ICs) at APEC 2006, March 19-23 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas.
Voluntary labeling programs such as EPA's ENERGY STAR, and regulatory organizations like China Certification Center for Energy Conservation Products (CECP), California Energy Commission (CEC) and the European Commission, are challenging today's design engineers to meet tighter active mode and no-load mode energy efficiency levels for external power supplies.. To enable conformance to all energy standards, Power Integrations' ICs incorporate control circuitry along with the company's EcoSmart technology to automatically reduce energy waste and maintain high levels of efficiency at all power levels required by the load. The company will unveil a new product at APEC, and will present on three of its new product families: LinkSwitch-LP and LinkSwitch-XT, designed for chargers and adapters under 4 W requiring specific output characteristics, and TinySwitch-III, the feature-rich third generation of the TinySwitch product line for power supply applications up to 28 W.
On Tuesday, March 21, the company will also offer a paper presentation, "Session 7.4: Low-Cost Energy-Efficient SMPS Delivers up to 90 W Peak from an EE-25 Core Transformer," and will host a champagne event in their booth (booth #149/150) to celebrate their receipt of an ENERGY STAR 2006 Partner of the Year award.
"Consumers and businesses have saved more than $1 billion on their electricity bills since 1998 by using products containing Power Integrations' EcoSmart ICs," said Doug Bailey, vice president of marketing for Power Integrations. "EcoSmart technology intelligently manages the flow of power into a device's power supply, resulting in dramatic energy savings compared to older power supply technologies. At APEC, we will show power supply designers how to implement our latest IC innovations to help save a watt -- even billions -- through energy-efficient designs that meet all worldwide regulatory standards."
