The SMM665 six-channel active controller from Summit Microelectronics delivers 'intelligent' power management that includes sequencing and margining functions. Suitable applications for the device include networking and communications equipment where carrier-class availability is essential.

The device utilizes the active dc output control (ADOC) engineering concept that intelligently maintains the output voltage of up to six dc/dc converters on the user's board, improving voltage accuracy in normal system use.

The SMM665 can be accessed by the I?C bus to exercise complete control of the board's power characteristics. This can be done during production, or each time that the board is booted up, or during normal operation "on-the-fly."

An evaluation card containing the SMM665 controller, six dc/dc converters, all required associated circuitry, and a port for "plug n' play" programming via the SMX33200 dongle interface is available. The product comes in a 48-pin TQFP surface-mount package, and is priced at $9 in 10,000 unit quantities.
