TESTER for TinySwitch 1-4 family chips & similar pinout ICs WITH VISUAL CONTROL + 46V/4A (8A MAX) DC VOLTAGE REGULATOR PWM-TESTTNY
The TinySwitch Chip Tester of the 1-4 version of the family allows you to quickly, easily and safely test the performance of very popular chips. The American company Power Integrations has developed and for many years produces several families of integrated circuits (IC) for low-power and small-sized networked pulse flyback power sources with galvanic isolation of output voltages from the network united by the common name TinySwitch. These chips are different, but they can all be tested with a PWM TESTTNY tester.
TinySwitch ICs are used in cell phone chargers, switching power supplies (UPSs) of radio telephone extenders (cordless radiophones) and antenna amplifiers, standby power supplies of TVs, personal computers, etc.
Often the cause of a malfunction of the power supply is the failure of the built-in MOSFET chip of the TinuSwitch series or the fatal damage of the chip by electricity (the chip burned without external signs of damage). Does the PinyM TinySwitch chip generator work? How to check the health of the TinySwitch chip? This problem is solved by the company PWM-TESTTNY tester. In addition, the device allows you to detect defective and fake TinySwitch chips from all four families of IC. Very often, chips from China are defective or simply fake. For a fake microcircuit a separate unit may not work, or, for example, generation is not stable.
Therefore, we recommend checking even the new TinySwitch series chips for operability. Even Power Integrations' original semiconductor integrated circuits can be damaged by static voltage during transport. The PWM-TESTTNY device allows you to check a chip simply, quickly and with visual control. Even without an oscilloscope. With an oscilloscope, you can check the quality and performance parameters. But usually a visual check with LEDs and an integrated voltmeter is enough.
Testing SMD versions of TinySwitch IC
TinySwitch microchips and it analogues can be produced in SMD packages: 8-Lead SMD-8C, 8-Lead SO-8C, 12-Lead eSOP-12B. Adapter for SMD testing is not included in standard KIT, but you can buy SMD adapters separately, if you plan to test chips not only in DIP package. PWM company can offer IC SMD adapters for 8-Lead SMD-8C package of TinySwitch SOIC8⇒DIP8. Adapters for 8-Lead SO-8C & 12-Lead eSOP-12B are not available.
The TinySwitch Chip Tester for ICs families versions 1-4 is available in two versions:
1. The DIY version of the device for self-assembling. This version comes in the form of parts and a set of electronic components for assembling the device. It is necessary to solder the electronic components on the printed circuit board, twist and assemble the details of the device.
2. The READY version of the device assembled by the PWM company and is ready for use

|Tested chip's description||Chips from the TinySwitch series from Power Integrations (PI). The company specializes in the design and production of microcircuits for various power sources and makes very interesting things. The TinySwitch series, on the other hand, is a line of network power supply controllers in a flyback topology with an integrated high-voltage MOSFET switch. TinySwitch application: 1. auxiliary power sources for PCs and other devices 2. power supplies for set-top-box 3. power supplies for household, industrial devices and flowmeters 4. chargers for mobile phones, PDAs, tablet PCs, portable audio devices TinySwitch-II series microcircuits differ in their capabilities from TOPSwitch-II, TOPSwitch-GX and TOPSwitch-FX [5–6, 8–9] microcircuits not only with lower power, but also with a simplified switching circuit. Improvements have been introduced into the microcircuits to increase the reliability of the inverters, reduce the size of the transformers used and increase the efficiency. Features of this series of chips: 1. "soft" start, reducing overload and facilitating the operation of the chip and other elements of the converter; 2. control of network voltage reduction beyond the permissible level; 3. Built-in generation frequency modulation, reducing the level of interference; 4. ability to work without load; 5. thermal protection with hysteresis on temperature at switching off and on; 6. a simplified feedback circuit that does not require additional winding; 7. small own consumption. TinySwitch Series ICs are available in two types of cases - DIP-8 and SMD-8. To increase the electrical strength of the buildings, seven conclusions were used, conclusion 6 was excluded.|
