Fairchild’s New SPM(R) Smart Power Modules Deliver Industry-Leading EfficiencyThe Wall Street Journal, May 23, 2014
Worldwide, small electric motors — like those in dishwashers, air conditioners and fans — account for up to 50 percent of total global energy consumption. With growing consumer demand for these appliances, power management solutions that maximize efficiency are a necessity for a greener and better future.
To help designers meet these needs, Fairchild developed the FSB70xxx series of advanced Motion SPM(R) 7 modules. Targeting small power motors under 100 W, these modules deliver industry-leading light-load efficiency (up to 44% better than the leading competition), robust on-module protection, and superior thermal efficiency up to 12% better from junction to case.
