Developers employing adaptive charging technology achieve dramatically faster charge times, improved charging efficiency and backward compatibility with the popular 5 V USB BC 1.2 specification, all while minimizing overall thermal management and battery charging system cost.
InnoSwitch-CP ICs use Power Integrations’ innovative FluxLink technology which enables high-performance secondary-side control to be implemented with the simplicity and low component count usually associated with primary-side regulation.
FluxLink technology also optimizes the effectiveness of output synchronous rectification, resulting in extremely high efficiency across the full load range. For example, no-load consumption at 230 VAC is less than 10 mW, while full-load efficiency exceeds 90%. InnoSwitch-CP devices easily meet all global energy efficiency regulations.
InnoSwitch-CP ICs incorporate a comprehensive suite of advanced protection features including: OVP; output OCP with 3 V auto restart; hysteretic thermal shutdown and line input overvoltage protection with accurate brown-in/brown-out thresholds.
Devices are fully compliant with safety and regulatory standards, including: 100% production HIPOT compliance testing equivalent to 6 kV DC/1 sec; reinforced insulation; and isolation voltage testing to above 3,500 VAC. They are UL1577 and TUV (EN60950) safety approved and EN61000-4-8 (100 A/m) and EN61000-4-9 (1000 A/m) compliant.
