Intersil Announces Highly Integrated DC/DC Digital PWM Controller for Densely Populated Infrastructure Power Systems

Intersil Corporation announced the ZL8801 dual-phase, DC/DC digital PWM controller. The ZL8801 expands Intersil's fourth generation controller family by enabling a simple dual phase solution for higher current applications ranging from 40A to 100A. With the ability to current share across multiple devices, its range can be extended up to 300 amps for high-end FPGAs and ASICs employed in densely populated power supplies in servers, storage equipment and basestations. Used in conjunction with Intersil's easy-to-use PowerNavigator(TM) graphical user interface (GUI), the ZL8801 simplifies system power conversion and speeds the design process. The ZL8801 utilizes Intersil's latest advances in digital power technology, leveraging the patented ChargeMode(TM) control loop architecture to deliver transient response performance that's far superior to analog controllers. Inherently stable, the ZL8801's fully digital control loop corrects errors cycle-by-cycle, eliminating the need for compensation. Its high control loop bandwidth reduces the amount of output capacitance needed to meet the latest transient requirements of high-end FPGAs and ASICs, resulting in a smaller board size and lower bill of materials cost. The ZL8801 can be paired with the ISL99140 40A DrMOS (Integrated Driver and MOSFET) output stage to create a complete voltage regulator solution.

Intersil Corporation Announces ISL78692, 4.1V Single-Cell Battery Charger

Intersil Corporation announced the ISL78692, a 4.1V single-cell battery charger designed to extend the life of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries in automotive emergency call (eCall) systems. The ISL78692 battery charger dissipates lower leakage current (3uA) than competing solutions, allowing the backup battery to remain charged for a longer period of time. Lower charging voltage also extends battery life while the device's small footprint reduces total solution size. Vehicles equipped with eCall systems automatically place a call to an emergency service center in the event of an accident. The ISL78692 Li-ion battery charger is designed to support emerging worldwide emergency call systems such as Europe's eCall initiative, which brings rapid assistance to motorists involved in a collision anywhere in the European Union, and OnStar, which provides a safety and security service in the United States. The ISL78692 charger's ability to monitor the battery's temperature and its low, 4.1V output voltage both help to extend the life of popular LiFeP04 batteries. Highly integrated, the ISL78692 requires only five external components to program the charging current. When combined with the charger's compact 3mm x 3mm DFN package, the complete solution easily fits on space-constrained PCBs. The ISL78692 also offers a unique charge current thermal foldback feature that prevents overheating by automatically reducing the battery charging current, creating a very robust, small footprint design. Features and Specifications: Complete charger for single-cell Lithium batteries; 3uA leakage (max) over -40degC to 85degC temperature range increases the duration the backup battery remains charged when Vin supply is off; up to 1A programmable charging current, allows trade-off of battery charging time against heat dissipation and expected battery lifetime; guaranteed operation down to 2.65V after start-up, preventing shut off during cold-crank start; 1% initial voltage accuracy provides precise control of charging level to extend operating lifetime of battery; integrated power transistor and current sensor; 10% trickle charge preconditions fully drained battery until it reaches 2.8V minimum charge level; NTC thermistor input protects battery by monitoring temperature and shuts off charger when battery is outside the specified charging temperature; and AEC-Q100 grade 3 qualified. The ISL78692 Li-ion battery charger is available now in a 10-pin, 3mm x 3mm DFN package and is priced at $0.99 in 1k quantities. The ISL78692 is supported by the ISL78692EVAL1Z evaluation board, which is available for $56 each.

Intersil Corporation Announces Single-Chip Display Power and Led Driver for Smartphones

Intersil Corporation announced the ISL98611 display power and LED driver for smartphones. The ISL98611 is the first power management IC that integrates the display power and backlight LED driver functions in a single chip. It significantly improves efficiency of both functions to increase smartphone battery life by an hour or more. In addition to extending battery life, the ISL98611 also improves display brightness uniformity and color consistency. The highly integrated ISL98611 has a boost regulator, LDO and inverting charge pump for generating two output rails at +5V and -5V in a single device. It also includes a boost regulator with 3-channel current sinks for the LED backlight driver. This single-chip solution offers designers four key benefits: Extended battery life: When used for web browsing and emails, a smartphone's backlight LEDs and display power consume the majority of its battery power. The ISL98611 backlight LED driver delivers 7% higher efficiency (up to 93%) than competitive multi-chip solutions and generates +/-5V display power supplies with greater than 88% efficiency at 15mA load using a 2.5x2mm2 size inductor, compared to 85% efficiency of the nearest competitor. Improved display uniformity: The ISL98611 provides excellent LED current matching at very low LED current: it achieves +/- 2.2% tching down to 1mA and +/- 2.8% at 50A. Improved display color consistency: The ISL98611 includes hybrid dimming to eliminate white LED color shift issues at low LED current, which occur with DC dimming. Smallest footprint: The ISL98611's total display power plus backlight solution uses 24% ss PCB area compared to the competition, while requiring only eight external components. This provides additional space to house the phone's battery. Powers two or three strings of backlight LEDs with up to 93% efficiency; Generates +/-5V display power supplies with 88% ficiency at 15mA load using a 2.5x2mm2 size inductor; Analog, PWM and hybrid dimming; +/-2.2% current matching down to 1mA and +/-2.8% 50A; 2.5V to 5V input voltage range; VP and VN output adjustable from +/4.5V up to +/-6V with 50mV steps; I2C, adjustable output voltage settings; 1uA shutdown supply current. The ISL98611 display power and LED driver is available now in a 2.33x2.61mm(2), 30-ball WLCSP package. Pricing for the ISL98611 is $1.50 in 1k quantities. The ISL98611EVAL1Z evaluation board can be purchased for $100 each.
