Rugged new ICs enable excellent no-load performance and are ideal for
low-power applications including appliances, IoT, metering and
industrial bias power.
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Power Integrations (Nasdaq:POWI),
the leader in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient
power conversion, today introduced its LinkSwitch™-XT2
family of offline, low-power converter ICs offering high accuracy, high
efficiency and excellent no-load performance. LinkSwitch-XT2 ICs
target isolated and non-isolated flyback applications in which accurate
regulation of output voltage and current are important. The new ICs can
deliver up to 6.1 watts in wide-input range designs, and up to 9.2 watts
for 230 VAC open-frame applications.

New LinkSwitch-XT2 Offline Flyback Switcher IC Family from Power Integrations Delivers High Accuracy and Efficiency. (Graphic: Business Wire)
Designed for flyback topologies, the LinkSwitch-XT2
family delivers designs that exhibit current and voltage regulation of
better than -/+ 3% and typical efficiency above 80%. LinkSwitch-XT2 ICs
consume less than 10 mW in no-load conditions. High (132 kHz) operating
frequency enables the use of small power transformers, while the
programmable current limit (ILIM) function enables further
combine a 725 V power MOSFET with control circuitry on a single silicon
die. Integrated safety and reliability features include input
overvoltage protection, hysteretic thermal shutdown for over-temperature
protection, and auto-restart for output short-circuit, overvoltage and
Comments senior product marketing manager Silvestro Fimiani: “The
accuracy, small size, efficiency and excellent no-load performance of
LinkSwitch-XT2 ICs makes them ideal for small appliances such as
microwave ovens, IoT applications, utility meters, industrial and
come in three packages: P-package (DIP-8C), D-package (SO-8C), and
G-package (SMD-8C) and are priced at $0.40 in 10,000-piece quantities.
