By eeNews Europe

The IR115x ICs, utilizing IR’s One Cycle Control (OCC) technology, offer high power factor (PF), low total harmonic distortion (THD) and excellent DC Bus regulation while enabling reduction in component count, PCB area and design time compared to traditional solutions. The ICs are designed to operate in continuous conduction mode Boost PFC converters with average current mode control over 85-264 VAC input line voltage range.

The new µPFC ICs offer advanced system-enabling and protective features including dedicated pin for over-voltage protection, cycle by cycle peak current limitation, open loop protection, VCC UVLO, programmable soft-start. The user initiated micropower startup/sleep-mode enables compliance with standby power requirements mandated by regulations such as Energy Star, Green Power and Blue Angel. The IR1152S and IR1153S also feature brown-out protection

The IR1155S offers programmable switching frequency between 48 kHz to 200 kHz based on the specific application requirement. The IR1152S and IR1153S offer fixed switching frequency of 66 kHz and 22.2 kHz respectively. These devices are compatible with IR’s Ultrafast and Warp IGBTs for systems with power ratings higher than 750 Watt and switching frequency up to 100 kHz.

Availability and Pricing

Available in an 8-pin SOIC package, pricing begins at US $ 0.50, $ 0.54 and $ 0.57 each in quantities of 10,000-units for the IR1152S, IR1153S and IR1155S. The IRAC1152-350W and IRAC1155-300W reference designs cost $170 and $140 per kit respectively. Production quantities are available immediately. The devices are lead free and RoHS compliant.
