re: New LinkSwitch-HP ICs introduce primary side regulation to power supplies up to 90W

NO RATINGS
Direct off-line AC regulators are becoming easier and easier to use which raises the possibility to take the AC-DC conversion deeper and deeper into some designs, closer to the point of use of the power. The lump-in-a-cord PSU is a no-brainer for some jobs, but when that won't cut it, taking the AC power far into your product to a few square inches of off-line converter make a lot of sense compared to building your own multi-level power distribution. The cost of insulation and isolation is not high and all the support parts are available. Much better in some apps than distributing high DC current busses.
