Onsemi Unveils High Power Totem Pole PFC Controller

News

Latest device reduces development time and cost allowing solutions to be delivered to market faster

Onsemi has announced its latest mixed-signal controller dedicated to bridgeless totem pole PFC (TP PFC) topology. The NCP1681 targets ultra-high density offline power supplies. Building upon the success of theNCP1680, which is suited for designs up to 350 W, the new controller extends the power capability into the kilowatt range.

In the past, TP PFC designs required the use of an MCU that added design complexity and the need for coding. However, with the NCP1681, only a few external components and no coding is needed to be added for a fully-featured TP PFC solution, thereby saving time, cost and space.

Commenting on the new release, Robert Tong, SVP and general manager of Computing and Cloud Division at onsemi said: “The new NCP1681 extends the benefits of code-free TP PFC design into higher power. This allows our customers to continue to enhance the efficiency of their design while reducing design time and cost, thereby delivering solutions to market quickly.”

The NCP1681 can be configured to work in either fixed frequency continuous conduction mode (CCM) or multi-mode operation, where the controller naturally transitions between CCM and critical conduction mode (CrM) for optimal performance across power levels.

The new NCP1681 high power TP PFC controller integrates established control algorithms with novel features to deliver a high performance and cost-effective TP PFC solution. Challenging efficiency standards such as ‘80Plus' or ‘CoC Tier 2', that require high efficiency over a wide load range, can also be met.

The new NCP1681 is suited to higher-power power supplies from 350 W to several kilowatts range that operate on universal mains input (90 - 265 Vac), addressing a wide range of applications including server, high performance computing, telecom, industrial and OLED TV.
