CAPZero X-Capacitor Discharge ICs Certified to New IEC 62368 Standard

September 10th, 2014

Power Integrations today announced that its CAPZero™ family of innovative, two-terminal, automatic X-capacitor discharge ICs has been certified to meet IEC 62368, the new over-arching safety standard covering TVs and IT equipment. The CAPZero family eliminates power losses while allowing power supplies to comply with safety standards. The new standard replaces IEC 60950 and IEC 60065 and will become mandatory.

Comments Edward Ong, product marketing manager at Power Integrations: "Once the new standards reach a mandatory phase, mains-voltage electrical equipment must carry the IEC 62368 certification. CAPZero ICs are certified to the new standard and deliver a simple, cost-effective solution to eliminate discharge resistor loss while requiring minimal modification to system or PCB layout.
