SAN JOSE, USA: Fairchild Semiconductor, a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile products, will demonstrate industry-leading technologies for power supplies and motion control applications at the 2011 Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exhibition (APEC), March 6-10, at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas, booth # 209.
At APEC 2011, Fairchild will be discussing mWSaver technology, which offers best-in-class power savings for power supplies with the fewest possible components. mWSaver technology can integrate these five patented technologies: off time modulation, internal JFET HV start-up, feedback impedance switch, HV discharge, and PSR constant current control; as well as burst mode operation and low operation current techniques. It is only by the unique integration of these technologies that the most stringent standby specifications can be met.
A focus for the show is the FAN302HL, a highly integrated PWM controller featuring several patented mWSaver technologies. The FAN302HL provides several features to enhance the performance of general flyback converters, including constant-current control and a proprietary topology that enables simplified circuit designs, especially important in battery charger applications. Using the FAN302HL, a charger can be implemented with few external components at a minimized cost, compared to a conventional design or a linear transformer.
By developing solutions like mWSaver technology and the FAN302HL, Fairchild enables engineers to drive innovation in their designs for maximum performance, simplified design and reduced bill of materials costs.
