High Power Factor, Constant-Voltage Controller with Integrated 650 V Power MOSFET

A team of engineers is ready to answer your questions

Configurable Minimum/Maximum Switching Frequencies Provides Design Flexibility

The iW3827 integrates a 650 V power MOSFET with an advanced digital controller and offers configurable maximum and minimum switching frequencies to provide design flexibility in high PF SSL constant voltage applications up to 8W.  It supports the most common single-stage isolated and non-isolated configurations (buck, buck-boost or flyback) to create a front-end power supply for smart lighting applications. The iW3827 uses advanced, proprietary digital control technology to enable high power factor (PF > 0.9) and low THD (< 20%).

The iW3827 offers configurable maximum PWM switching frequency to allow optimization between size and efficiency and configurable minimum PFM switching frequency to optimize between transient performance and low no-load power consumption. The unique digital control technology accommodates large output capacitor variations while enabling fast transient response to keep the transient output voltage within 10% of its nominal level.
