NXP recently expanded its GreenChip line of SOI-based power supply controller ICs with the new TEA1832TS (click here for more product info). Here at ASN, we first covered this line back in 2011 (see that Buzz here), and NXP’s been adding to it ever since.
Smart, green power supplies are one of the most important ways that designers reduce the power consumption of modern electronics. The reason NXP has been using SOI for over 15 years is well explained in this ASN piece from 2009 – read it here.
The TEA1832TS is a low-cost Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) controller IC intended for flyback topologies. It makes the design of low-cost, highly efficient and reliable supplies easier by requiring a minimum number of external components. The device is especially suited for medium power applications.
