Increasing consumer demand for highly reliable, energy efficient appliances creates an opportunity for appliance manufacturers to differentiate their product offerings. Additionally, mandates in the Energy Efficient and Smart Appliance Agreement of 2010 will force appliance manufacturers to adopt more energy efficient technologies.
Allegro’s broad portfolio of energy efficient integrated circuits (ICs) includes nearly lossless electrical current sensor ICs that reduce energy consumption and ohmic losses in refrigeration and HVAC compressor, motor or inverter applications. Micro power and low current consumption contactless position sensor ICs also enable reliable open and close or knob position functions. Finally, Allegro Power ICs enable efficient power management and BLDC motor or fan control in a wide range of white goods applications.
