Top Innovative Product Nominees: Helix Semiconductors

The HS100 uses Helix’s MuxCapacitor capacitance-based conversion IP in a unique high-voltage process. It includes a converter IC and controller IC taking in up to 240 VAC and outputting 5 VDC at 2 A (US/Japan) and 5 VDC at 1A (Europe) at conversion efficiencies above 90 percent even with low load. It enables engineers to power systems more efficiently achieving nearly Zero Power loss.
