Linear Technology Corp. has signed an agreement with Primarion Inc. to produce digital point-of-load (POL) products for networking, computing and telecommunications infrastructure.

According to the press release, both companies will dual source Primarion's Di-POL family of PMBus-compliant digital DC/DC controllers, beginning with the PX7510. The PMBus standard enables system-level communications with multiple POL converters for programming and monitoring of complex power systems.

The PX7510 and LTC7510 are single-phase, step-down DC/DC controllers that provide for outputs down to 0.7V. A digital feedback control loop, combined with calibrated analog functions, provides a flexible, high performance solution. The industry-standard PMBus interface is used to implement all control functions via on-chip non-volatile memory, enabling easy design optimization with minimum component count for clean and efficient designs.

"This exclusive agreement with Primarion enables us to offer our worldwide customers state-of-the-art digital power solutions," said Dave Bell, president of Linear Technology. "Our LTC7510 digital POL controller provides identical features to Primarion's PX7510, and is just the first member in a family of digital power solutions."

Ron Van Dell, president and CEO of Primarion, added, "This alliance moves digital power management toward mainstream application by ensuring that customers have dual sources for this flexible digital power solution."
