Primary side power module from Potentia

Potentia Semiconductor claims the industry's first primary side power module for LCD TVs with screen sizes from 32 inches to 65 inches. The PM-6010 enables LCD TV makers to cost-effectively build high-efficiency power supplies with the industry's smallest size, the company said.

The PM-6010 is a power control and conversion module for primary side, off-line power factor correction (PFC) and isolated DC/DC power conversion using LLC resonant power topologies.

"This power solution is the first of its kind to fully integrate PFC controlled power with all required power switching semiconductors," said Potentia CEO Tom Griffin. "The PM-6010 allows for multiple PFC topologies and a wide range of operating frequencies to provide a total solution for emerging power supply requirements."

The PM-6010 features the advantages of an integrated PFC and LLC, allowing high operating frequency capability on chip power conversion devices for improved energy and heat dissipation, and multiple built-in protection functions.

The PM-6010 is available in versions that support the 200-500W power range for LCD TVs that employ direct powering of CCFL backlighting from the PFC or traditional power topologies.
