Power Integrations announced the release of its LNK3207, the newest member of the company’s LinkSwitch™-TN2 AC-DC converter family.

Per the company, the new ICs facilitate higher-power offline buck converter designs by increasing the output current from 360 mA to 575 mA while reducing BOM count.

Furthermore, the AC-DC converter ICs can increase currents by 60% and deliver over 80% efficiency, in addition to a no-load consumption of less than 30 mW.

According to a company press release, each monolithic LinkSwitch-TN2 IC incorporates a 725 V power MOSFET, oscillator, on/off control for high efficiency at light load, a high-voltage switched current source for self-biasing, frequency jittering, fast (cycle-by-cycle) current limit, hysteretic thermal shutdown, and output and input overvoltage protection circuitry.

Additionally, the ICs are suitable for sensor-based devices that need low power, like security cameras and smart devices.

They are available in three packages: PDIP-8C, SMD-8C, and SO-8C for design flexibility.
