Future Electronics Promotes Intersil’s ISL68200/01 Digital Hybrid PWM Controllers with PM Bus Interface

Montreal, Canada – April 5, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components founded in 1968 by Robert Miller, with headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has announced immediate shipping availability of Intersil’s ISL68200/01 Digital Hybrid PWM Controllers with PM Bus Interface.

The ISL68200/01 is a single-phase synchronous-buck PWM controller featuring Intersil’s proprietary R4™ Technology, supporting a wide 4.5V to 24V input voltage range and a wide 0.5V to 5.5V output range. Integrated LDOs provide controller bias voltage, allowing for single supply operation. The ISL68200 includes a PMBus/SMBus/I2C interface for device configuration and telemetry (VIN, VOUT, IOUT and temperature) and fault reporting.

Intersil’s proprietary R4™ control scheme provides extremely fast transient performance, accurately regulated frequency control and all internal compensation. An efficiency enhancing PFM mode can be enabled to greatly improve light-load efficiency. The ISL68200/01 series bus allows easy R4™ loop optimization, resulting in fast transient performance over a wide range of applications, including all ceramic output filters.

The ISL68200/01 has four 8-bit configuration pins, which provide very flexible configuration options (frequency, VOUT, R4™ gain, etc.) without the need for built-in NVM memory, which results in a design flow that closely matches traditional analog controllers while still offering the design flexibility and feature set of a digital PMBus/SMBus/I2C interface. The ISL68200/01 also features remote voltage sensing and completely eliminates any potential difference between remote and local grounds, thus improving regulation and protection accuracy. A precision enable input is available to coordinate the start-up of the ISL68200/01 with other voltage rails, which is especially useful for power sequencing.

Typical applications for the ISL68200/01 Digital Hybrid PWM Controllers from Intersil include FPGA, ASIC and memory supplies; high efficiency and high density POL digital power; data center servers and storage systems; wired infrastructure (routers/switches/optical networking); and wireless infrastructure (base stations).

Future Electronics Shares Key Performance Parameters of Linear Regulators from Intersil

Montreal, Canada – January 18, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, featured an article in a recent issue of the company’s monthly publication, Future Technology Magazine, discussing linear regulators and their key performance parameters.

The article was written by Sitthipong Angkititrakul and Dhananjay Singh, from Intersil Corporation. The following is an abridged version of the main points included in the informational article.

Low-dropout regulators, commonly called LDOs, are used in a broad range of electronic applications across many different industries. An LDO is generally perceived as a simple and inexpensive way to regulate and control an output voltage that is delivered from a higher input voltage supply.

To make the best use of an LDO, it is necessary to understand the key performance parameters and their impact on given loads. Designers will need to determine whether the LDO is suitable for a specific load by closely analyzing the surrounding circuit conditions.

An LDO comprises three basic functional elements: a reference voltage, a pass element and an error amplifier. During normal operation, the pass element behaves as a voltage controller current source. The pass element is driven by a compensated control signal from the error amplifier, which senses the output voltage and compares it with the reference voltage. All of these function blocks affect the LDO’s performance.

The seven key performance parameters for an LDO are dropout voltage, load regulation, line regulation, power supply rejection ratio (PSRR), noise, transient response, and quiescent current.

Though simple in concept and implementation, LDOs perform a vital function in system power design. There are many factors that need to be considered to optimize a design, particularly at higher current levels. For mid to high current applications, Intersil’s ISL80510/05 provide balanced performance across all key LDO performance parameters: low dropout, transient performance, voltage accuracy and a near flat PSRR response across a wide range of frequencies.

Future Electronics Features Design Consideration Tips in FTM for High Speed RS-485 Data Links

Montreal, Canada – November 16, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently featured an article written by Thomas Kugelstadt, an Applications Engineer for Intersil, in the company’s monthly publication, Future Technology Magazine.

In the article, Kugelstadt discusses signal degradation on the bus and key transceiver requirements for reliable high speed transmission, and offers design tips for system and bus node designs, along with a set of general high speed design guidelines.

The article first addresses signal degradation through jitter, explaining that both driver and receiver pulse skews and pattern dependent cable skew cause signal jitter. Driver and receiver pulse skew are the difference in propagation delays for the rising and falling edges of the driver and receiver. This skew determines the pulse distortion occurring between the single-ended input and the differential output of a driver, and between the differential input and the single-ended output of a receiver.

In order to reduce jitter, data coding schemes can be applied to remove the large DC content of long bit sequences of 1s and 0s by introducing more transitions into the data stream. The encoded signal charges and discharges the cable capacitance more equally, and generates more consistent signal amplitudes.

Kugelstad goes on to discuss transceiver requirements and methods for counteracting signal degradation issues. He recommends choosing high speed transceivers with large differential output voltages (VOD) and small skews. Large driver VOD overcomes the reduction in signal amplitude due to cable attenuation, data encoding and common mode loading (result of ground potential differences), and ensures sufficient noise margin at the remote receiver inputs.

Next, the author provides bus node design tips, and points out that the pin-out of an RS-485 transceiver is tailored for a straightforward bus node design, as the bus terminals are located on one side of the IC, and the single-ended data lines and control lines are on the opposite side. High speed bus nodes require the application of controlled impedance transmission lines to assure low electromagnetic interference (EMI).

In conclusion, Kugelstadt explains that in order to overcome the signal degradation issues of high speed data networks exposed to harsh environments, designers must pay careful attention to the system design and board layout and use devices that provide exceptionally high output drive capability and highly accurate switching performance.
