ON Semiconductor Offers Integrated Switching Regulators to Enable High Efficiency Offline Power Converters for Consumer Applications

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficient innovations, has added three new current mode, fixed frequency switching regulators to its expansive power management product portfolio. Targeted at use in compact, high reliability offline AC-DC switched-mode power supplies, the NCP1129, NCP1126, and NCP1124 incorporate an avalanche-rated 650 volt (V) MOSFET and frequency foldback along with skip mode that improve the light load and standby efficiency, meeting the ENERGY STAR® EPS 2.0 Standard.

The high degree of integration results in minimal external components and significantly reduces the overall bill of materials, making them highly suited to power system designs for household appliances, DVD players and set top boxes. The NCP1129, NCP1126, and NCP1124 can deliver up to 25 W, 15 W and 12 W respectively and each generate a jittered 65 kilo Hertz (kHz) or 100 kHz switching frequency, resulting in marked improvements in electro-magnetic interference (EMI) performance.

“This new NCP112x series of switchers enable power system design engineers to create more energy efficient and more cost effective power supply designs that will fit into confined spaces,” said Shane Chilton, senior director, AC-DC Power Conversion Products at ON Semiconductor. “The design flexibility provided by specifying these devices allows engineers to optimize their design implementations for either heightened power efficiency or reduced board real estate.”

It is possible for the maximum peak current to be adjusted via an external resistor, facilitating ramp compensation, so that stable continuous conduction mode (CCM) operation can be maintained. The frequency foldback mode permits power conversion efficiency levels to be raised under light load conditions, while the skip mode can be activated for reducing standby power consumption at (or close to) a no load scenario - with less than 100 milliwatts (mW) drawn at high line when in standby mode.

The NCP112x devices all have a wide array of protective features including a 50 ms timer-based auto-recovery short-circuit protection function. Furthermore, short-circuit fault conditions can be independently detected from the auxiliary winding voltage, thereby ensuring that comprehensive safeguards against short-circuit occurrences are in place. The devices incorporate built-in thermal shutdown and over-voltage response mechanisms, as well as a 2 kilovolt (kV) human body model (HBM) resilience rating to electrostatic discharge. An operational temperature range of -40 °C to +150 °C is supported.

Packaging and Pricing

The NCP112x integrated switching regulators are offered in Pb-free PDIP-7 packages, with pricing starting at $0.32 per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
