These integrated circuits feature an internal startup timer for stand-alone applications, a one-quadrant multiplier for near unity power factor, zero current detector to ensure critical conduction operation, transconductance error amplifier, trimmed internal bandgap reference, current sensing comparator, and a totem-pole output ideally suited for driving a power MOSFET.
