Development of MCZ5213ST PFC+LLC controller equipped with THD improvement function

Nov. 1, 2016

Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Headquartered in Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku) has developed the MCZ5213ST PFC+LLC controller with THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) improvement function.

1. Overview

This product is equipped with a function built in to the IC which utilizes Shindengen's proprietary technologies to make it possible to maintain THD at less than 10%, which can greatly contribute to power harmonic current regulation, especially in the lighting industry. The product is a control IC for PFC and LLC which allows it to be deployed in a variety of applications.
Lighting equipment must satisfy the requirements of JIS C61000-3-2 Power Harmonic Current Regulation Class C, for which reduction of THD is effective. The MCZ5213ST, developed using Shindengen's proprietary technologies, is equipped with a THD improvement function which allows for reduction of THD to less than 10%, which in turn makes it possible to more reliably clear the requirements of the relevant standards.
In addition, because the product is a control IC for power factor improvement circuits and current resonance circuits, it can also be deployed in a wide variety of applications other than lighting equipment.

2. Features

  • Equipped with a THD improvement function suitable for lighting applications
    THD: Achieves less than 10% at 50% load and less than 5% at 100% load at AC 240 V
  • Single chip PFC/LLC controller in a SOP18 package.
  • High efficiency and low EMI through critical conduction mode PFC control.
  • Adjustable LLC min/max and start frequency.
  • 600 V robust Gate driver.
  • Optimizes PFC/LLC ON-OFF sequence.
  • 35 V rating for Vcc supply.

3. Major Applications

  • CVCC application like high power LED driver / battery charger.
  • LBP and other document PSU.
  • High power audio amp PSU.
  • Flat panel display PSU.
  • Industrial PSU.
