From Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) comes a new family of voltage regulators designed to help customers reduce their total system power loss by combining its timing portfolio with a multiphase controller and featuring coupled inductor technology.

The new solution is designed to improve system performance and power consumption in computing applications, such as desktops, notebooks, gaming systems, servers and workstations.

Following the recent IKOR acquisition, IDT now offers a complete power management solution featuring coupled inductor technology and VR controllers. Its latest product minimizes power loss while further reducing the total system BOM. According to IDT, it is the only company to offer a voltage regulator module and a voltage regulator down solution.

This power management solution features a new multiphase power converter paired with a new system clock-power console. The IDT P62000 multiphase controller is a flexible two-, three- or four-phase pulse width modulation device capable of meeting precise voltage regulation requirements for advanced microprocessors. The IDT solution is fully compliant with the current VR11.1 with a roadmap into the upcoming VR12, providing increased design flexibility.

The IDT 9CPS4592 system clock-power console communicates with the IDT multiphase power converter over a serial interface to provide real-time power-usage control of the peripheral components. This patented chip-to-chip architecture helps IDT customers simplify design, reduce power consumption and save board space by eliminating the need for additional devices to achieve this communication.

The P62000 power converter is priced at $0.98 for 10,000 units and is available in a QFN 64-pin package. The 9CPS4592 clock is priced at $0.80 for 10,000 units and is available in a TSSOP 64-pin package.
