SmartEgg

Single-Stage Zero Voltage Switching PFC and Regulator

SmartEgg is the EcoVoltas AC/DC architecture for medium-power applications that require Power Factor Correction (PFC).

SmartEgg is perfect for AC/DC power converters that range from 100W to 1kW where it achieves high efficiency and high power density with an extremely cost-effective Bill of Materials.

SmartEgg has been designed to offer a single-stage converter able to act both as PFC and isolated regulator, cutting by half the Bill of Materials, increasing power density dramatically and improving efficiency in comparison with traditional boost PFC + LLC resonant converters.

SmartEgg is based on a proprietary magnetic component driven by a GaN half bridge on the primary side.

Bill of Materials

Thanks to the innovative architecture, SmartEgg needs just a magnetic component for both PFC and regulation functionalities and requires half the number of MOSFETs in comparison with a conventional architecture based on Boost PFC + LLC converter.

This leads to increased power density and extremely cost effective power converters.
