Power Integrations Introduces 75W Single-Stage Driver for LED Lighting

Combined PFC/CC converter chip raises efficiency of LED high-bay, parking-lot and street lamp drivers to over 92%

SAN JOSE , CALIF. – August 14, 2012 Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI), maker of the world’s most efficient, longest-lasting off-line LED driver ICs, today announced two new additions to its LinkSwitch™-PH IC family. The new devices allowcommercial lighting applications up to 75W to benefit from single-stage design, dramatically reducing BOM cost and enabling a smaller driver with very high efficiency.

LNK410EG (dimming) and LNK420EG (non-dimming) provide a constant-current output with a PF- corrected  and  low THD input. The capabilities of the new devices are showcased in RDR-290, a reference design describing a single-output driver for high-bay lighting.

RDR-290is92.2% efficient at 230 VAC for a 75 W output design while easily meeting EN61000-3-2 class C limits. Power factor is above 0.95. Noprimary high-voltage electrolytic bulk capacitor is required,makinglifetimes of 50,000 hours practical,even in challenging outdoor environments and at high ambient temperatures.

Comments Andrew Smith, product marketing manager at Power Integrations: “By greatly increasing the power capability of single-stage conversion, the efficiency and longevity benefits of the single-stage approach can now be applied to industrial and commercial LED lighting - the market that most needs those characteristics.”

RDR-290 is freely downloadable from the Power Integrations website at http://www.powerint.com/sites/default/files/PDFFiles/rdr290.pdf.
