International Rectifier has introduced six new digital PWM controllers meeting Intel VR12 and VR12.5 and AMD SVI1 and SVI2 specifications, and support multiphase designs from 1 to 8 phases operating 1 to 2 loops.
The features include:
Features phase shedding and variable gate drive with enhanced algorithms including PID scaling (when shedding phases) and phase current balancing.
Supports the extremely high di/dt transients from high-end processors, and, as a result of a new Adaptive Transient Algorithm (ATA), the transients can be met with fewer phases and fewer capacitors to shrink system size.
For protection of high-end circuits, the devices offer improved pulse-by-pulse current limit protection, controlled pulse width limiting a new phase imbalance/phase missing fault feature.
The devices fully support phase doubling using IR's IR3598 to drive two phases from each PWM output. The devices also sense 12V, 5V and 3.3V supplies without special sequencing and feature PMBUS telemetry.
