PFC and Ballast Control ICs

alt
The IRS2580DS Combo8.
International Rectifier Corp. (El Segundo, CA) has introduced the IRS2580DS Combo8, an IC that integrates power factor correction (PFC) and ballast control in an 8-pin SO-8 package. To provide power factor correction, the IRS2580DS includes a boost converter control circuit operating in critical-conduction free-running frequency mode. The new IC also includes a 600V half-bridge control circuit working at 50 percent duty-cycle. It has variable frequency for driving the resonant mode lamp output circuit.

Fault protection circuitry protects against mains interrupt, brownout, lamp non-strike, lamp filament failure, and end-of-life. The IRS2580DS requires only two primary control pins to perform ballast functions: an analog voltage-to-frequency input pin for programming the different operating frequencies for preheating, igniting, and running the lamp; and a PWM output pin for controlling the on and off times during each switching cycle of the PFC boost converter.
