AnDAPT unlocks Adaptable technology for power management with new portfolio of PMICs spanning multiple topologies, with unprecedented flexibility and performance

“Adaptable PMICs” provide turn-key solutions and help customers reduce design complexity

San Jose, California — December 04, 2018 – AnDAPTTM today announced the release of a portfolio of five Adaptable Power Management Integrated Circuits (Adaptable PMICs) built on its disruptive AmPTM 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 compelling combination of high performance, small form factor, flexibility and ease of use. Configuration options are also available using AnDAPT’s new WebAdapterTM 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), 4 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).

“Our Adaptable technology brings unique topology change capabilities, to address different customer applications, while leveraging the AmP IC” said Kapil Shankar, President and CEO of AnDAPT. “In a matter of weeks, we can release multiple PMICs, that fit our customer’s application needs with unprecedented flexibility and performance”.

Adaptable PMICs are also available as “soft” PMICs on AnDAPT’s On-Demand PMIC WebAmPTM 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. AnDAPT is uniquely positioned to bring to market advanced power management solutions, with an extensive library of Power Components and topologies. 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.

“By addressing the discrete power devices, the standard power management IC and the custom PMIC markets, AnDAPT is expanding its Total Available Market to greater than $5 billion” added Kapil. “This technology is disrupting the power device ecosystem, by bringing the performance of existing analog technology and the flexibility of programmable fabric, all with one monolithic semiconductor IC”.

Packaging and Availability 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).

Overcoming Signal Integrity Challenges of 112G Connections on PCB

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

One big challenge with 112G SerDes is handling signal integrity (SI) issues. By the time the signal winds its way from the transmitter on one chip to packages, across traces on PCBs, through connectors or cables, and arrives at the receiver, the signal is very distorted, making it a challenge to recover the clock and data-bits of the information being transferred. Learn how to handle SI issues and ensure that data is faithfully transmitted with a very low bit error rate (BER).

Time Sensitive Networking for Industrial Automation

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Intel

In control applications with strict deterministic requirements, such as those found in automotive and industrial domains, Time Sensitive Networking offers a way to send time-critical traffic over a standard Ethernet infrastructure. This enables the convergence of all traffic classes and multiple applications in one network. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Josh Levine of Intel and Patrick Loschmidt of TTTech about standards, specifications, and capabilities of time-sensitive networking (TSN).
