As part of its Power Focus campaign, Digi-Key Electronics, which offers the world’s largest selection of electronic components in stock for immediate shipment, is collaborating with Power Integrations, a leading innovator in semiconductor technologies for high-voltage power conversion, to offer Power Integrations’ InnoSwitch™3 IC family with PowiGaN™ technology.
This technology delivers high-impact performance for demanding consumer and industrial applications while simultaneously reducing energy consumption.
As more applications increase their reliance on smart devices and power automation, demand for higher-efficiency solutions with stronger thermal performance is rising and GaN is quickly replacing silicon. PowiGaN is Power Integrations’ internally-developed technology that allows InnoSwitch3 ICs to achieve 95% efficiency across the full load range and up to 100 W in enclosed adapter implementations without heat sinks.
“We are excited to work with Digi-Key to make our InnoSwitch3 ICs available to such a broad, global audience,” says Trevor Hiatt, channel marketing director at Power Integrations. “GaN technology is revolutionizing the power electronics industry and the number of applications requiring PowiGaN levels of efficiency and integration is growing. Digi-Key’s ability to reach the worldwide engineering audience is invaluable in allowing us to support customers of any scale.”
David Stein, vice president of global supplier management at Digi-Key agrees: “This campaign with Power Integrations demonstrates our ongoing commitment to working with industry leaders to offer components that are more efficient, more compact and lighter than silicon alternatives, and will power faster, more efficient, and diverse applications.”
