Chip set raises DC/DCs

El Segundo, Calif. – International Rectifier’s new DirectFET chipset is designed to maximize DC/DC bus converter efficiency. When used with IR’s recently announced IR2086S full-bridge bus-converter IC, the chip set enables a solution that can deliver 336 watts with 97 percent efficiency in a footprint that’s about 30 percent smaller than a traditional quarter-brick converter, according to the company.
