NCP185x series switching battery charger named best innovation in charge and battery management category, underlining the company’s leadership in portable electronics

SHENZHEN, China – May 30, 2013 – – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN),driving innovation in energy efficiency, has been awarded a Power Supply Products Award 2012 by Electronic Engineering & Product World (EEPW), one of China’s leading electronics industry publications, for its NCP185x series switching battery charger, optimized for power efficiency in smart phones, tablets and other handheld devices.

The NCP185x series switching battery charger was one of just 12 products that emerged as winners over a hundred of power and power supply products released during 2012; and the only winner for the Best Innovation Award in charge and battery management.

"This prestigious award win recognizes our innovation in providing faster charging and longer battery life in portable electronics," said Hemen Cheng, ON Semiconductor senior marketing director of the Application Products Group. "We will continue to develop innovative products to offer robustness, efficiency and fast charge time, which are now pre-requisites for designers of today’s high performance, ultra-space constrained applications."

The NCP185x series switching battery charger is a fully programmable single cell lithium-ion switching battery charger. Optimized for charging from a USB compliant input supply and AC adapter power source, the device significantly reduces charge time, increases battery life and includes advanced start-up features. It integrates a synchronous PWM controller, power MOSFETs, and the entire charge cycle monitoring including safety features under software supervision. An optional battery FET can be placed between the system and the battery in order to isolate and supply the system.

The annual EEPW Power Supply Products Award program, now in its ninth year, is open to embedded system suppliers worldwide. The publication presents Best Innovation and Best Application awards in six product categories: DC-DC Converters, Power Management, LED Drivers, Power Devices, Battery Management, and Green Power and New Energy Resources. Products are selected from a host of competing products through a combination of online voting and the decision of a judging panel of industry experts appointed by Electronic Engineering and Product World (EEPW).
