|Fairchild Semiconductor Establishes Chicago Power Design Center for
Industrial and Consumer Applications|
South Portland, Maine — Fairchild Semiconductor adds
to its growing number of worldwide Global Power Resource™ Design Centers with the addition of the Chicago, Illinois
laboratory. This design center provides expertise in quasi-resonant designs offering less noise, lower EMI and
higher efficiency than hard-switching, fixed-frequency designs in applications such as color TVs and set-top boxes.
Additionally, Fairchild’s quasi-resonant designs offer design engineers the advantage of a highly integrated
solution that combines a MOSFET and controller in one package. Cost-sensitive designs in industrial and consumer
applications can realize a lower overall system cost through a reduction in the amount of filtering as well as heat
sink size and by the reduced number of components.
“Fairchild’s Chicago Power Design Center provides solutions
for AC/DC applications in the complete range of power from 2 W and 5 W adapters for cell phones and for 200 W
quasi-resonant designs in televisions,” says Carl Walding, applications manager, Chicago Power Design Center. “We’re
able to provide a total power design solution utilizing Fairchild products to optimize efficiency, increase
performance, reduce part count and inventory costs, while improving the end applications’ time-to-market.”
The strength of the Chicago Power Design Center stems from its experienced technical staff of design
engineers and a network of field application engineers with years of industry experience partnering with customers
to address their power requirements. Fairchild’s design centers create a design from schematic capture through board
layout, prototype build, characterization, BOM selection and manufacturability review.
state-of-the-art design centers are part of Fairchild’s Global Power Resource™ –– a worldwide network of design
labs, systems application experts, online design tools, evaluation boards and joint research and development labs.
Fairchild is The Power Franchise®, offering power expertise and design services to optimize and streamline customer
designs in the computing, communications, consumer, industrial, automotive and display segments. Fairchild’s design
centers are located in the United States, Germany, Taiwan, Korea and several locations in China. Fairchild plans to
double the number of power design centers with additional laboratories scheduled to open in China, South America,
Korea, and Japan.
