Power Integrations Offers Low Power TOPSwitch(R) In Surface Mount Packages

July 7, 1997
Smallest form factor Stand-by power supply

Sunnyvale, CA, July 7, 1997....Power Integrations, Inc., a company dedicated to providing low cost power conversion solutions, announced availability of surface mount package options for two of its most popular TOPSwitch devices. Both the TOP209 and TOP210, which are targeted at low power applications, are now available in an 8-pin plastic surface mount package.


The TOP209/210 were both introduced last year for low power applications. Both devices have been very successful as stand-by power supplies in a number of applications, such as personal computers, television and industrial control. The devices provide the ability to shut down the system while always ready to "wake-up" the system with the push of a button or interrupt from a network. The TOP209/210 are ideally suited for stand-by power supplies because they cost-effectively deliver low power (< 10W) in a very small form factor.

The new surface mount packages allow system integrators to provide stand-by supplies in an even smaller form factor while simplifying manufacturing. The TOP210 device in the new surface mount package can be used to create a 4 Watt universal input power supply for stand-by applications in less than 15 cm2 with only 12 components!

The TOP209/210 devices utilize TOPSwitch technology which integrates a 700V power MOSFET with a PWM and other control circuitry on the same die. By integrating these components into a single chip, customers can create a low cost, simple solution for switching power supplies. The TOP209G and TOP210G support designs with power outputs up to 8W from a 100/115/230 VAC input or 5W from a universal input (85 - 265 VAC).


The TOP209G and TOP210G devices are in production now. At 10,000 piece quantities TOP209G and TOP210G are priced at $0.89 and $1.05, respectively. Tape and reel is available upon request. Samples are available through an authorized Power Integrations sales representative.
