Product Details


  • Lowest cost and component count buck converter solution
  • Tight tolerances and negligible temperature variation
  • System level thermal overload, output short-circuit and open loop protection
  • Supports buck, buck-boost and flyback topologies
  • Excellent line and load regulation even with typical configuration
  • High bandwidth provides fast turn-on with no overshoot
  • Current limit operation rejects line ripple
  • Universal input voltage range (85 VAC to 265 VAC)
  • Built-in current limit and hysteretic thermal protection
  • Higher efficiency than passive solutions
  • Higher power factor than capacitor-fed solutions
  • Enables a 100% SMD designed power supply


  • Non-isolated buck or buck-boost converter solution for linear/passive dropper replacement
  • Major and small home appliances
  • Industrial controls
  • Utility meters
  • Constant current LED lighting
  • Timers
