PHOENIX, Ariz. - March 26, 2007 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a leading global supplier of power management solutions, today announced that it has won the 2006 Analog/Mixed Signal IC Editor’s Choice Technology Innovation Award for its NCP1271 controller in China from Electronic Engineering and Product World (EEPW). It is the third consecutive year that EEPW has given ON Semiconductor the award.
“We selected ON Semiconductor’s NCP1271 because it utilizes advanced technologies to provide many features of high-performance power,” said the editorial board of EEPW. “Excellent features such as internal frequency jittering, ramp compensation and timer-based fault detection make this new-generation PWM controller widely applied in power adapters, chargers, set-top boxes, DVDs and DVD-Rs.”
The NCP1271 represents a new generation of the successful 7-pin current mode NCP12xx product series of ON Semiconductor. The controller allows for excellent stand-by power consumption by using its adjustable Soft Skip mode and integrated high voltage startup FET. The proprietary Soft Skip topology dramatically reduces the risk of acoustic noise, allowing the use of inexpensive transformers and capacitors in the clamping network. Internal frequency jittering, ramp compensation, timer-based fault detection and a latch input make this controller an excellent candidate for converters where ruggedness and component cost are key considerations.
"Winning an award from a leading magazine like Electronic Engineering and Product World for the third consecutive year reinforces ON Semiconductor’s leadership in power management solutions,” said Hemen Cheng, ON Semiconductor’s global sales and marketing director of the Automotive and Power Regulation Group. “The NCP1271’s Soft Skip mode with adjustable skip level and external latch enables excellent standby power performance even under no load conditions, providing all features needed for a reliable and effective power supply design.”
