SAN JOSE, Calif. – December 20, 2005 – Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI), the leader in high-voltage analog integrated circuits for power conversion, has been named one of the top 30 companies in the power electronics industry by Power Electronics Technology magazine. The list, presented in the magazine's recent 30 th anniversary edition, recognizes the 30 companies that have had the greatest impact on the power electronics industry over the past 30 years.


Power Integrations also appears twice on the magazine's list of 30 key industry milestones from the past 30 years. Included on the list are the 1994 introduction of TOPSwitch®, the industry's first monolithic IC for switched-mode power supplies, as well as the 1998 launch of TinySwitch®, the company's revolutionary switcher IC featuring on/off control. TOPSwitch remains the all-time top-selling family of high-voltage power-conversion ICs, with nearly 900 million units sold.

The company has sold more than one billion EcoSmart chips, and has now saved consumers more than an estimated $1.3 billion in electricity costs.

"For nearly two decades, Power Integrations has worked to bring the benefits of integrated circuits to the power supply market," said Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations. "Thanks to our technology, power supplies are becoming smaller, simpler, and more energy-efficient, which benefits consumers, manufacturers and the environment.
