Power Integrations announces further support for EV designs

Power Integrations has said that its automotive-qualified InnoSwitch3-AQ flyback switcher IC family is now available with a member rated to 900 V, providing greater headroom for 400 V and 800 V electric vehicle Inverter, battery management and climate control applications.

The family of devices combines primary and secondary controllers plus safety-rated feedback circuitry into a single IC. This allows accurate output voltage regulation, low component count and configuration options for operation over the ultra-wide input voltage range of 30 V to 1200 V.

Commenting Edward Ong, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Power Integrations said, “New 400 V system designs for electric vehicles require higher operating voltages to account for fault conditions and transients. The new 900 V INN3996CQ ICs provide plenty of voltage headroom and meet the Automotive Electronics Council strict requirements for qualification ensuring safe and reliable operation in the demanding automotive application. Using a StackFET approach, the new Device is suitable for 900 V and greater bus designs.”

According to Power Integrations the constant voltage (CV) regulated AEC-Q100-qualified InnoSwitch3-AQ switcher ICs achieve up to 90% efficiency across the load range and consumes less than 15 mW under no-load conditions. Output power is up to 20 W at 85 °C ambient temperature and 400 VDC input for the 900 V family.

Devices incorporate a multi-mode Quasi-Resonant (QR) / CCM / DCM flyback controller, 900 V switch, and Power Integrations’ high speed FluxLink communications link that enables accurate regulation in the compact InSOP24 package and provides reinforced isolation up to 5500 m altitude. InnoSwitch3-AQ ICs operate down to 30 VDC, enabling automotive designers to use the device in traction inverter emergency Power Supply applications.

InnoSwitch3-AQ family devices include multiple protection features for automotive applications including input over-voltage and under-voltage protection, output over-voltage and over-current limiting, and over-temperature shutdown
