Pericom offers a range of charger controllers that provide fast, reliable charge termination for both NiCd and NiMH battery applications, for use in power tools and consumer electronics. We also offer fully integrated single-cell Li-ion battery charger IC operating in a constant-current-constant-voltage (CC/CV) charging profile without employing external FETs or blocking diodes.
Pericom offers highly integrated mixed-signal IC products for small home appliance applications, such as single-chip temperature controller IC for hair curler, toaster oven and smart electronic iron. We also offer IC for shaver power switch and smart battery charger applications. We are proud to provide our customers with most cost effective total solutions with the state of the art semiconductor products. Through co-operations with our global customers, our home appliance IC products pass stringent regulatory standards, such as UL and CE.
Pericom’s DC Motor Controllers are highly integrated, mixed signal CMOS LSI chips designed for applications such as shaver, clipper, toothbrush, etc. The devices can directly drive motor with thermal and short-circuit protection features.
Pericom offers highly integrated mixed-signal IC for heating control applications such as hair curlers, straighteners, etc. Heating controller products are offered with different heating elements including MICA, PTC, and MCH. Pericom's ceramic heating controllers can drive SCR directly and detect the heater temperature without extra temperature sensor.
Pericom’s low power, low cost smart iron controllers can detect the vertical/horizontal position and movement status of the iron by using special proprietary sensor technology.
Pericom’s Passive Infrared (PIR) devices are designed specifically for use in automatic PIR control systems such as lamp control. The devices can support a 2-wire configuration for triac applications or a 3-wire configuration for relay applications.
Pericom provides offers a broad portfolio of integrated circuits for remote control applications, such as toy cars. Our products are ideal for applications that require low cost and reliability.
Application-specific universal timer ICs for home appliance, healthcare, and industrial control applications reduce cost, improve power efficiency, and increase system reliability.
