Analog chip vendor Intersil Corp. has introduced a new power management IC for notebook, server and desktop PCs running on Intel Corp.'s upcoming Montevina platform. The ISL6266A chip is a two-phase core controller designed to improve the efficiency and performance of systems based on Intel Mobile, Core 2 Duo and quad-core CPUs, says Intersil. The chip features the company's patented R3 Technology, which commands variable switching frequency during load transient events and provides the fastest transient response of any comparable IC on the market, claims Intersil. The R3 is said to ensure fast and highly efficient performance across all the entire loadline of CPU operation.

Moreover, the ISL6266A features fault-proof capability in the form of overvoltage, undervoltage and overcurrent protections. The ISL6266A also comes with power and thermal monitors. The ISL6266A is housed in a 48-lead, 7mm x 7mm package that is compatible with existing board layouts that use Intersil's previous generation of power management ICs. It sells for $2.86 apiece in 1,000-unit quantities. More information on the ISL6266A is available at,1477,ISL6266A,0.html
