International Rectifier, IR ® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced the introduction of IR's µHVIC™ family of general purpose high-voltage and low-voltage integrated circuits that simplifies power system development by offering easy-to-implement building blocks for frequently used circuit elements.

The new family of µHVIC™ devices includes the IRSxx752L 100V, 200V and 600V single channel high-side drivers; the IRS25751L high-voltage start-up IC; the IRS44273L single channel low-side driver IC; the IRS2505L PFC boost driver IC; and the IR25750L current sensing IC.

The µHVIC™ family is a tool kit of ICs for common circuit elements in switched mode power (SMPS) electronics. The family offers engineers simple, flexible ICs with which to conveniently design and innovate. The µHVIC™ family utilizes IR's proven high-voltage IC technology to realize multiple functions and integrate robust protective features in an SOT23 package. The family is available in a small 5 lead or 6 lead SOT23 package, offering a cost effective and easy to implement solution, simplifying design and reducing time to market.

"The new µHVIC™ ICs are easy-to-use circuit building blocks for engineers to conveniently mix and match. The ICs can be rearranged into multiple topologies. Their use is limited only by the imagination of the designer," said Ahmed Masood, Executive Director of Consumer Products, IR's Energy Saving Products Business Unit.

Featuring integrated ESD and excellent latch immunity to enable rugged monolithic protection, IR's µHVIC™ family is qualified to industrial grade, RoHS compliant and moisture sensitivity level 1 (MSL1).
