International Rectifier (IR) recently introduced the IRS2505LTRPbF, a power factor correction (PFC) boost IC in a 5-pin SOT23 package for switch mode power supply (SMPS), LED drivers, fluorescent and HID electronic ballast applications.

The IRS2505L features a control system that can implement a PFC controller with only five pins, reducing overall system size, component count and system cost. The boost IC may be configured to operate in critical conduction boost PFC, buck or flyback configuration.

The IC incorporates a free-running frequency oscillator with on- and off-time control of the boost power MOSFET. The on-time feature is used to maintain an accurate and constant DC bus output voltage while providing a sinusoidal-shaped AC mains input current for high power factor and ultra-low total harmonic distortion. The off-time is determined by the inductor current zero-crossing detection circuit that does not require a secondary winding, further cutting component count.

The IRS2505L offers wide input voltage and load range, regulated DC bus output voltage and programmable DC bus voltage level. Protection features include DC bus over-voltage protection, programmable MOSFET over-current protection and integrated ESD protection on all pins. Micro-power start-up current, 20.8V internal Zener clamp on VCC and latch immunity on all inputs and outputs are also featured.
