3DFS Power Systems is working on such a device, however they have designed the unit to be universal as far as dc or ac input/output. The whitepaper is rather interesting: http://3dfs.com/technology/white-paper

It sounds interesting that the digital controller concept now is tended to apply to PMIC device. There are couple chalenges ahead for PMIC Deigners is that: 1) Cost- how much can we get from selling one device like this. (ie $0.30 .. or less) 2) in order to sell these device, sale and marketing engineers need to have enought knowledge about the device and convince the buyer 3) Digital controller here is sounded not very attractive enough. I mean if I know ahead of the time the "event" that occurs, the problem is not complicated. The digital controller for PMIC should be smart enough to recognize, learn and adapt to the change ... would be the cool one. In addition, testing these device now aday is a big task for test engineer too. Have a good day.
