New device family reduces standby power for appliance applications

New device family reduces standby power for appliance applications
Power Integrations has announced CAPZero-3, the latest generation of the energy-saving X-capacitor discharge ICs. Two-terminal CAPZero-3 ICs enable designers to easily meet IEC60335 safety approvals for major appliances, and cover allcapacitor values from 100-6µF. The IEC60335 is the discharge safety standard for all appliances. To protect the user from an electrical hazard, it requires the voltage across the input X capacitor to discharge to less than 34V within less than one second after the AC is removed.
