Power & Power Management

Overview

Description

The iW9860 digital AC/DC controller integrates Renesas’ patented quasi-resonant (QR) valley mode switching technology with both CCM and DCM operation to enable ultra-small, light-weight, low-cost, and easily portable power supplies for smartphones, tablets, and other portable products. The iW9860 supports USB Power Delivery 3.0 with PPS at output powers up to 63W. It pairs with Renesas’ iW760 secondary-side IC, which integrates fast charge protocol support, USB Type-C® control, and synchronous rectification FET control.

Using proprietary intelligent power-saving technology, the iW9860+iW760 chipset consumes less than 5mW no-load standby power, ideal for adapters and chargers that are left continuously connected to AC mains.

The iW9860 further reduces the total power supply BOM count and system cost by integrating innovative gate driving and EMI reduction technologies, resulting in very low EMI power supplies using a minimum of external components. The iW9860’s adaptive QR mode also allows the use of smaller passive components, further reducing the overall BOM cost.

For the lowest total BOM count and < 20mW standby power, please see the iW9861.
