The products look like a nice step forward for Maxim. I wonder if XOOM considered using the single chip (10 touch capable) Maxim capacitive touch-screen controllers? This might have been a better selection rather than the 4 chip set they used.

I didnt have chance to work on new maxim products however had some experiences with TI ones. Biasing was big pain i hope Maxim really solved that trouble. Furthermore having products with integrated power management and mixed-signal functions and a touch-screen controller on single chip simply marvelous idea. Since mobile era is here, i am sure they will have lots of customers. Should we consider Atmel is also working on such product?

Looks attractive, especially when it said the new part has faster response that the analog counterparts. As far as I know, whenever it comes to use ADC to sample the power supply and apply PID, the speed is surely limited and therefore the best class digital power supply is still falling away from the best class analog power supply. So, if MAXIM can really perform better (hope they are also comparing the best class analog competition), it surely is a good news to the market. However, 5x bias current may be a problem.

I tested few of the Maxim IC products.Their IC's are well made and gives results as per their specification or better. Entering into digital power market will increase the market share of them.We can see new innovative IC's from Maxim semiconductors

This is good work. If this can reduce the amount of power used by all of my devices, I can save some money on my energy bill. I like to see us moving to greener solutions as we move forward.

If these perform as well as we are used to seeing in the analog world, this will be a welcome addition to the industry and to their lineup.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
