The new devices expand the range of applications supported by the TOPSwitch-GX family of switched mode power supply ICs. The ICs are targeted for low-profile through-hole assembly in existing applications such as universal power adapters, video game consoles, LCD monitors, and other power supply designs that require heat-sinking but, due to specific design requirements, may have limited height available above the printed circuit board.

Power Integrations announced the availability of a new low-profile through-hole assembly package option for its TOPSwitch-GX product line, a power monolithic switcher IC family. Nine new devices, ranging in power up to 290 watts, are now offered in the industry standard TO-262 package for applications that cannot accommodate a TO-220 package because of height restrictions.
