LLC Converters Maximize Efficiency, Minimize Footprint

Achieving a maximum efficiency of better than 97%, the HiperLCS family of high-voltage LLC converters integrate the controller, high- and low-side drivers, and both MOSFETs into a single compact package. They provide all necessary functions in a single IC, eliminating up to 30 discrete and passive components to streamline design cycles, save board space, reduce assembly costs, and increase reliability. The converters enable designs that easily exceed the performance benchmarks set by ENERGY STAR 4.0 and 5.0 and the 80 PLUS Gold and Platinum PC efficiency standards. Pricing for HiperLCS devices in eSIP-16C packages starts at $2.28 each/10,000. POWER INTEGRATIONS INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 414-9665.
