Modules Provide Optimum Combination of Power Discrete Semiconductors,
Transformers and Inductor Design Values
An optimized tool that works with the most popular PSFB+SR control ICs
on the market (UCC28950 and UCC3895).
A complete power train discrete device design including selection of
the optimum Fairchild MOSFET, IGBT, and rectifier. Users can select
the optimum bridge rectifier, MOSFET/IGBT, and power rectifier part
numbers (PNs), or let the tools recommend from user-specified system
An optimized power train discrete design targeting power supplies that
need PFC and/or PSFB+SR.
Power train discrete component losses correlated against hardware for
highest level of relative accuracy unmatched by equation-based
The ability to compare different sets of power train discrete
combinations within one analysis. The module highlights Fairchild’s
MOSFET and IGBT technology portfolio which includes SuperFET® MOSFETs,
SuperFET® II MOSFETs, SupreMOS® MOSFETs, PowerTrench® MOSFETs and
The option to let the tools recommend or fine-tune the power train
discrete components, automating a tedious, high-iteration, manual
trial-and-error / test-design step, saving valuable time.
Visual representation of system and major component power loss and
efficiency over different line and load conditions, allowing designer
to go back into the online design steps to re-balance the system and
component loss before prototyping.
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high
performance power and mobile semiconductor solutions, has enhanced Power
Supply WebDesigner (PSW) – an online design and simulation tool that
provides complete designs in under a minute – to include power
train discrete (MOSFET/IGBT/Rectifier) device power loss and efficiency
Intended for 100 W to 3 kW designs as a function of input and output
conditions, these new modules provide designers power factor correction
(PFC), phase-shifted full-bridge plus secondary side synchronous
rectification (PSFB+SR) power train discrete device analysis, and the
matrix of device combinations associated with these topologies.
From user-specified electrical and mechanical specifications, the new
modules provide an optimum combination of power discrete semiconductors,
transformer and inductor design values, as well as a bill of material
(BOM). It also provides a dashboard view of the converter’s system and
device power loss, device junction temperature, and further component
fine-tuning over the operating conditions.
As with other PSW modules, designers using the tools can accept default
recommended values, or spend time optimizing the important details to
their unique design needs. They can get quick, accurate estimates on
design performance, and refine design choices as they go. The tools also
allow them to spend the time to perform detailed simulation analysis and
learn the insights of how their design and its hardware prototype will
work with higher degree of confidence.
Train Discrete Module consists of a phase-shifted full bridge with
secondary side synchronous rectification (PSFB+SR) module and power
factor correction (PFC) module. They are easy-to-use, powerful online
simulation tools that provide designers:
