International Rectifier’s IRS2980 LEDrivIR™ IC Named Finalist Of 2013 EE Times And EDN ACE Awards

International Rectifier, IR ® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced its IRS2980 LEDrivIR™ IC was named a finalist in the Ultimate Products - Power category of UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards.

Rated at 600 V, the IRS2980 utilizes hysteretic average current mode control for precise current regulation. The LED buck driver features low-side MOSFET drive with high-voltage internal regulator and high-side current sensing. The converter is compatible with electronic PWM dimming allowing for 0%-100% current control.

“The IRS2980 LEDrivIR™ IC offers improved performance at a lower system cost than alternative solutions for non-isolated LED driver applications and we are pleased that the device has been named a finalist in these highly prestigious awards,” said Adam White, IR’s Senior Vice President, Global Sales.

Available in an SO-8 package, the IRS2980 LEDrivIR™ IC utilizes IR’s advanced high-voltage IC process which incorporates latest-generation high-voltage level-shifting and termination technology to deliver superior electrical over-stress protection and higher field reliability, in addition to other new features and enhancements.

The Ultimate Products of the Year Award – awarded to the most significant product introduced in the last 12 months in 11 categories - is determined by large-scale peer review. Finalists in each category are chosen by expert editors from both EE Times and EDN with accompanying editorial reviews.

The Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards ceremony will take place on April 23, 2013, as part of UBM Tech’s DESIGN West and ESC Silicon Valley Conference.
