Future Electronics introduces the new InnoSwitch3 flyback switcher ICs from Power Integrations

Montreal, Canada – March 29, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is very pleased to announce availability of the InnoSwitch3 family of Flyback Switcher Integrated Circuits from Power Integrations.

InnoSwitch™ ICs combine primary, secondary and feedback circuits in a single surface-mounted off-line flyback switcher IC. The InnoSwitch IC incorporates the primary FET, the primary-side controller, a secondary-side controller for synchronous rectification, and an innovative new FluxLink™ technology that eliminates the need for an optocoupler.

Power Integrations’ FluxLink™ is a proprietary new communication technology that enables feedback information to be delivered across an isolation barrier without the use of any magnetic materials. FluxLink delivers a very high communication bandwidth which enables a much faster load-transient response, and does not suffer from the typical optocoupler degradation mechanisms. It is embedded into the package and by eliminating bulky optocouplers, it saves space and increases power density, which is particularly beneficial for adapters and chargers.

Power Integrations’ InnoSwitch™ family of ICs is available now from Future Electronics. For more information about InnoSwitch™ and the entire portfolio of Power Integrations products available through Future Electronics, visit: www.FutureElectronics.com
