Fairchild Semiconductor to Highlight Energy-Efficient Lighting Solutions at PCIM Europe
News Release from:
13 April 2010
Fairchild Semiconductor will highlight its LED lighting solutions at PCIM Europe. Fairchild will also feature its leading power technologies and application demonstrations that innovate AC-DC, DC-DC and automotive designs.
High brightness LEDs use a fraction of the wattage that average incandescent bulbs use, last longer than fluorescent bulbs and eliminate hazardous materials such as mercury and lead. Fairchild’s broad portfolio of power solutions enable higher efficiency in these applications, reduce component count and contribute to ecodesign.
For example, Fairchild’s PSR controllers, the FSEZ1307 and FAN102, eliminate power losses caused by the secondary side current sensing and achieve the most accurate constant current, allowing devices to accommodate different numbers of LED in series. These devices eliminate the secondary-side circuitry, and reduce the number of components, resulting in a lower Bill of Material (BOM) costs and less waste, contributing to ecodesign. Fairchild’s boundary mode PFC control IC, the FAN6961 or FAN7930, provide active power factor correction and component count for the power supplies that drive these LEDs.
Fairchild will also highlight its broad portfolio of AC-DC solutions that offer up to 96 percent efficiency, low standby power and system reliability. Demos will feature the award-winning interleaved boundary-mode PFC controller, the FAN9612, as well as the FSFA2100, a 450W half-bridge asymmetric power switch.
In DC-DC designs, Fairchild’s solutions achieve over 50 percent space savings; optimizing power and ease-of-design. Demos will feature the TinyBuck™ family that offers high efficiency for point of load (POL), set-top boxes, servers and smart meter applications and Dual Cool™ MOSFETs that improve power density, power dissipation and system reliability in applications such as telecom, datacom and workstations.
For automotive Fairchild will showcase its gate drivers, which enable increased fuel efficiency. Demonstrations will include the FAN708x series of HVICs that allow engineers to develop more accurate and precise fuel injection control systems under all operating conditions.
Fairchild technologists will present the following papers:
Conduction mode EMI analysis of flyback topology SMPS
Thermal characterization of multi-die products
High cell density, shielded-gate power MOSFET for improved DC-DC applications
Fairchild will also deliver two vendor presentations:
Improving Efficiency and Standby Power for 200W-500W AC input power supplies
Thermally Enhanced, Top-Side Cooling Power56 Package for High Current DC-DC Solutions
PCIM, held in Nuremberg, May 4-6, is Europe’s premiere venue for experts in power electronics and applications in Intelligent Motion and Power Quality.
