Digital PFC ICs elevate performance, help to meet global regulations and solve system design challenges in power supplies used in notebook adapters, digital TVs, PCs and LED fluorescent ballasts
Newark, a leading multi-channel, high-service electronics distributor in the Americas, announced today it is stocking the new CS1501/CS1601 digital power factor correction (PFC) ICs, demo boards and a reference design kit from Cirrus Logic. The ICs offer superior performance and allow for simpler and smaller system designs in comparison to legacy analog PFC controllers.
The new CS1501/CS1601 provide an industry standard pinout to ensure an easy upgrade path from analog controllers, which are nearing the end of their capabilities to meet increasingly strict global regulations of the utility grid. Intended for use in switch-mode power supplies rated up to 300 watts, they offer best-in-class total harmonic distortion, power factor and efficiency across all load conditions, while reducing the size and number of required external components.
“We are committed to stocking innovative solutions that help engineers create cost-effective products for lighting and power supply applications,” commented Jeff Uden, VP, Product Management, Newark. “Engineers will also find a lot of helpful information on our element14 engineering community, including a lighting microsite plus Cirrus Logic white papers and reference designs.”
