Renesas offers a wide selection of PWM controllers designed for switch-mode DC/DC and AC/DC power supplies requiring an isolation transformer, such as off-line AC/DC and -48V telecom-input DC/DC converters. Included in this broad controllers and converters portfolio are single-ended and double-ended isolated PWM controllers, as well as zero voltage switching (ZVS) full bridge controllers.

Use the following table to identify which products will best meet the needs of your next isolated power project:
