NCP185x series switching battery charger claims prestigious award for the 11th consecutive year, reinforcing ON Semiconductor's leadership in portable electronics

Sept. 12, 2011 ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficient innovations, today announced that it has been named a winner in Electronic Products China (EPC)’s Top-10 Power Products Award for its NCP185x series switching battery charger, which is optimized for power efficiency in smart phones, tablets and other handheld devices. EPC is one of China’s most authoritative electronics trade publications and this is the 11th consecutive year that ON Semiconductor has won an award from this publication.

"It is truly a significant honor to receive this award for the eleventh consecutive year," said Hemen Cheng, ON Semiconductor's senior marketing director of the Application Products Group. "The award further demonstrates ON Semiconductor’s ongoing commitment to innovation and cost effectiveness in the portable electronics market, and highlights the company’s strength in power management and portable solutions. We will continue to develop innovative, high performance power solutions that help engineers solve their design challenges and achieve high power efficiency."

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 NCP185x series switching battery charger can help improve charging efficiency, as well as increasing charging speed and safety,” concluded the judging panel that gave this year's award to ON Semiconductor.

Electronic Products China is a sister publication of Electronic Products magazine published in the US. The magazine’s annual Top 10 Power Products Award program has become a benchmark for the industry to identify high-quality products. It recognizes a range of power products which undergo a strict evaluation and recommendation process by an expert judging panel. The products are measured against three principal criteria: design innovation, price-performance, and technological advancement.
