The FSEZ1307 is a
third-generation Primary Side Regulation (PSR) PWM controller combination power
MOSFET providing several features to enhance the performance of low-power
flyback converters. The proprietary TRUECURRENTTM topology, enables precise CC
regulation and simplified circuit design for battery-charger applications.
Using the FSEZ1307 results in a lower cost and lighter charger compared to a
conventional design or a linear transformer. To minimize standby power
consumption, the proprietary green mode provides off-time modulation to
linearly decrease PWM frequency under light-load conditions. Green mode assists
the power supply in meeting power conservation requirements. By using the
FSEZ1307, a charger can be implemented with few external components and
minimized cost. In charger applications, designers have been challenged to
lower standby power and achieve higher efficiency, all while reducing the form
factor of their designs. Currently in these applications, RCC or other IC
solutions are used, with varying degrees of success. With the broadest
portfolio of PSR PWM Controllers in the industry, including the FSEZ1307 PSR with High Voltage (HV) startup and
integrated MOSFET, Fairchild can simplify designs, save board space and meet
today's demands for power savings.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
