AnDAPT announced the release of a portfolio of five Adaptable Power Management Integrated Circuits (Adaptable PMICs) built on its AmP platform ICs. With this unique technology, AnDAPT is able to rapidly release a multitude of Off-the-Shelf PMICs with entirely different topologies, covering a broad spectrum of customer applications, while relying on a single pre-tested and characterized monolithic AmP IC.
Adaptable PMICs can be used as-is by customers without software programming yet offer best-in-class flexibility and time-to-market, eliminating the cost and development time of traditional custom PMICs. They offer a combination of high performance, small form factor, flexibility and ease of use. Configuration options are also available using AnDAPT’s new WebAdapter tool.
The AnD8xxx product family features a compact 5mm x 5mm package and a high level of integration in order to provide best-in-class system solution to power chipset, processor and memory.
All products incorporate multiple buck converters (6A), four general-purpose LDOs and power management features such as fault protection and sequencing. The first Adaptable PMICs are:
- AnD8400: Four 6A synchronous buck converters
- AnD8320: Three 6A synchronous buck converters, 2 high current (1A) LDOs
- AnD8302: Three 6A synchronous buck converters, 2 high current (6A) Load switches
- AnD8240: Two 6A synchronous buck converters, 4 high current (1A) LDOs
- AnD8204: Two 6A synchronous buck converters, 4 high current (6A) Load switches
In Q1 2019, AnDAPT will release six additional Adaptable PMICs (AnD7xxx family) with high current capabilities (up to 40A) including the industry’s first PMIC to integrate a controller interfacing with Driver-MOSFET (DrMOS).
Adaptable PMICs are also available as “soft” PMICs on AnDAPT’s On-Demand PMIC WebAmP tools, allowing user desired topology changes, for a fully customized PMIC, without the cost (no NRE) and the development time (no mask, no qualification) always required with custom PMICs.
The portfolio includes buck, boost, buck-boost converters, battery chargers, load switches, LDOs, gate drivers, controllers, sequencers and supervisors. Single and multi-phase regulators and controller topologies are also offered as well as application specific solutions.
The Adaptable product family is offered in QFN packages 5mm x 5mm and 8mm x 8mm footprint sizes. Initial devices (AnD8400, AnD8320, AnD8302, AnD8240 and AnD8204) are available today, in a 5mm x 5mm thermally enhanced QFN package. Evaluation boards are also available to order on the AnDAPT website for all devices (AnD8400EB, AnD8320EB, AnD8302EB, AnD8240EB and AnD8204EB).
