Milpitas, Calif.Intersil Corp.'s latest power management IC will be designed into notebook, server and desktop computers based on Intel's upcoming Montevina platform.
Intersil's ISL6266A chip is a two-phase core controller designed to improve the efficiency and performance of systems based on the new generation of Intel Mobile, Core 2 Duo and Quad Core CPUs. The ISL6266A features Intersil's patented R3 Technology (Robust Ripple Regulator), which commands variable switching frequency during load transient events and provides a fast transient response. R3 ensures fast and efficient performance across the entire load line of CPU operation.
With enhanced load line accuracy, the ISL6266A ensures Intel specification compliance in mass production and, along with a 0.5% system accuracy over temperature, the overall output decoupling requirements leading to low total output capacitor cost.
The ISL6266A also features fault-proof capability in the form of overvoltage, undervoltage and overcurrent protections to protect the regulator, the CPU and the upstream power supply. In addition, the ISL6266A features power and thermal monitors. All of the ISL6266A's features are incorporated into a small 48-lead, 7mm x 7mm QFN package.
Pricing: $2.86 each in 1,000-unit quantities.
