The latest upgrade to Power Integrations popular PI Expert power supply design software (Suite v7.1.5) includes:
* Improved support for PI's HiperPLC® controller IC for offline resonant converters. Choose from a variety of magnetic core materials and sizes for both for the LLC and PFC stages. The design spreadsheet also allows for transformer design optimization for improved efficiency.
* Accurate calculation of the external resistor required to reduce no-load consumption in designs using PI's LinkSwitch-II and LinkSwitch-CV product families in flyback topologies.
* Expanded Help feature to include traditional Chinese language support.
PI Expert is an interactive program that takes your power supply specifications, automatically generates the electrical design, and selects the critical components required. It also provides a detailed electrical and mechanical transformer design using PI's proprietary E-Shield EMI reduction techniques. Optimization choices stressing cost and efficiency are included to help target your specific needs. The program reduces your design time from days to just minutes.
