Looking to expand its offerings in the high performance light emitting diode (LED) lighting applications, ON semiconductor has introduced two new families of power factor corrected (PFC) offline AC-DC drivers.
The expansion of products in the NCL3008x address single stage design implementations up to 60 W that need high power, ON said. Meanwhile, the NCL30030 supports even higher power – up to 150 W – for stage two topologies that require low optical ripple and wide LED forward voltage variation, the Phoenix, Ariz.-based company said.
There are three devices in the expanded NCL3008x family – the NCL30085, the NCL30088 and the NCL30086 – that feature user configurable current thermal fold-back mechanisms that help prevent overheating and enable manufacturers to support longer lifetime warranties, ON said.
Shane Chilton, senior director of the AC-DC Power Conversion division at ON, said in a statement that the new PFC controllers fit the needs for LED lamps and drivers in the LED market and “deliver precise current regulation” that allows for lighting designs that are “more flexible and can be future proofed with a common control approach.”
The three devices in the NCL3008x family are priced at $0.35 each in 10,000 unit quantities and the NCL30030 is priced at $0.65 each in 10,000 unit quantities.
