Company Overview of Akros Silicon Inc.

Company Overview

Akros Silicon Inc., a fabless semiconductor company, uses precision analog and mixed-signal CMOS-based technologies to develop system-level solutions for energy management applications. The company provides power management ICs to facilitate remote and intelligent network-based energy management using its GreenEdge, a digital isolation technology that enables integration by eliminating the traditional isolation barrier to create a power system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution. It offers isolated DC-DC SoC, power-over-Ethernet (PoE) powered device PD SoC, PoE PD controllers, and digital isolators. The company’s solutions are used in Ethernet switches and routers, isolated power modules, programmable ...

Akros Silicon Inc. Key Developments

Akros Silicon Offers First Integrated Bidirectional 3.4MHz I2C Isolator

Akros Silicon Inc. announced the AS1705 digital isolator. Optimized to enable real-time telemetry and control of Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) controllers used in Power-over-Ethernet capable (PoE) switches and routers, the AS1705's 3.4 MHz communication speed and integration level are unmatched in the industry. The AS1705 comprises a dual channel bidirectional I 2 C digital isolator as well as five unidirectional channels of isolation. Built on Akros' proven GreenEdge(TM) digital isolation technology, each of the isolation channels are rated to provide 2.5 kV of galvanic isolation. On the bidirectional I 2 C channels, the AS1705's 3.4 MHz data rate provides the needed bandwidth for a system's processor to dynamically monitor and control the power requirements for multiple PSE controllers within a system. This enables the system to allocate the precise amount of power required by each port while eliminating unnecessary power allocation, which in turn reduces system energy consumption. The five unidirectional channels replace optocouplers or standalone unidirectional digital isolators and provide all of the isolated communication signals used by a PSE system, including system reset, PSE interrupt and three power good indicators from the system's power supply units. The integrated functionality of the AS1705 enables it to replace: either one I 2 C digital isolator and five optocouplers or one I 2 C digital isolator and a five-channel unidirectional digital isolator. In both of these cases, the AS1705 reduces the PCB footprint of the isolation circuitry by 50%, simplifying board layout and reducing design time. Price is $2.30 for 1K piece quantities.
