International Rectifier (IR) has introduced the IRAC1150-D2 Power Factor Correction (PFC) Control design kit and added a PFC design tool to its myPOWER online design center. The new design kit features the IR1150 ?PFC for AC-DC PFC and is a small, 1.1-inch-square, fully-assembled PFC control circuit that engineers can drop in to an existing power supply, replacing its old continuous conduction mode (CCM) PFC circuit.

"This reference design allows designers to immediately see the benefit of IR's one-cycle control performance without a major redesign or spending a lot of time evaluating and prototyping a new PFC circuit," said Stephen Oliver, marketing manager for AC-DC products at IR.

According to the press release, designing with the IR1150 is simplified with the aid of a two-step process online design tool. Users simply enter system requirements, and the design tool generates a complete BoMs. The design tool simplifies active PFC development so that designers can replace old, passive solutions with poor power factors and low efficiency with modern, more efficient solutions.

The reference design kit comes complete with an assembled and tested reference design board, five IR1150STR ICs, two 8ETX06 Hyperfast rectifiers, user's guide, application notes, device data sheets and printed circuit board files (Gerber, .dxf and .cad).

The IRAC1150-D2 reference design board is already available. Pricing is $195 each and is subject to change.
