Woburn, MA, United States, 2010/06/10 - Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), received two prestigious Best Innovation prizes in the annual Power Products Awards.
Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile products, received two prestigious Best Innovation prizes in the annual Power Products Awards from Electronic Engineering and Product World (EEPW), one of China’s leading electronic design publications.
The FAN9612 boundary-conduction mode (BCM) interleaving power factor correction (PFC) controller received a Best Innovative Award in the power management category. While the FDMS7605, the industry’s first sub-one mOhm 30V MOSFET in a Power 56 package, also picked up a Best Innovative Award, in the highly competitive power component category.
The award winning FAN9612 provides over 96 percent power conversion efficiency for AC-DC power supplies. Applications include power supplies for digital TVs, desktop and entry-level server computers, front-end telecom systems and industrial power systems rated from 100W to 1000W. With the industry adoption of PFC as a means of reducing energy waste at the point of distribution, the interleaved PFC is becoming a more sophisticated way of maximizing energy savings in today’s energy-conscious world.
The FDMS7650, functions as a load switch or an ORing FET. In server farms, these ORing FETs are used when many power supplies are arranged in parallel to share the load. Dissipating less power and delivering higher efficiency is critical for the overall efficiency of these server farms because the FETs are continually on. The FDMS7650 has a MAX RDS(ON) of only 0.99mOhm, reducing conduction losses and improving the overall efficiency of the application.
This award winning 30V MOSFET, the FDMS7650, can deliver the same total RDS(ON) with half the number of FETs. The device is able to achieve this through Fairchild's advanced-performance PowerTrench® MOSFET technology. This technology yields an exceptionally low RDS(ON), total gate charge (QG) and Miller Charge (QGD) – enhancements that result in high efficiency by minimizing conduction and switching losses.
Fairchild’s representative accepted the awards at a presentation ceremony held in Shenzhen during the 7th Green Power and Power Management Seminar 2010 on 8 June.
“We are proud to accept this award, which clearly demonstrates our ability to design and develop products that meet the very specific needs of engineers in China,” said Benjamin Tan, Fairchild’s regional vice president of Sales and Marketing, China and South East Asia. “The fact that we have two energy efficiency products, in the innovation categories underscores our commitment to assisting China and the engineers in this region meet the region and the world’s requirements for improved efficiency in all products.”
