Digi-Key strengthens power management portfolio with premier Power System-on-Chip supplier
HAMPTON, New Jersey, USA and THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - Enpirion, the leader of integrated power IC solutions, and global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's largest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the signing of a global distribution agreement.
Enpirion's PowerSoCs with integrated inductors enable the industry's smallest solution footprints and are recognized for their high efficiency, low noise, exceptional thermal performance, high reliability and ease of use. Unlike discrete or module power products, Enpirion's turnkey solutions enable fastest time to market with complete power systems that are fully simulated, characterized, validated and production qualified.
"Enpirion has made a name for themselves in the integrated power IC market," said Mark Zack, vice president, semiconductor product at Digi-Key. "Their cutting-edge solutions offer our customers a fully qualified, drop in solution to meet even the most demanding, high-performance power needs. We are excited to add Enpirion to our broad line card."
Highlights of the Enpirion PowerSoC portfolio include
· The EN2300 product family of fully integrated 12 Volt POL DC-DC converters offers compact solution footprints from 4 Amp at 190mm² to 15 Amp at 308mm². This represents up to a sixty percent area reduction versus conventional solutions at comparable performance. The EN2300 Power SoCs support an input voltage range of 4.5 to 14V and an output voltage range of 0.6 to 5V.
· The Enpirion EV1320, a 2 Amp source/sink DDR termination converter that offers a peak efficiency of 96 percent - 1.4 Watt power savings over a traditional LDO (low drop out) regulator-based solution at a comparable low cost and small solution footprint.
· The EN5339 POL DC-DC converter, which fits into a 55 mm2 solution area with a 1.1 mm profile, and is effectively setting the bar for the smallest 3 Amp solution available.
"We are excited to partner with Digi-Key," said Mark Cieri, Enpirion's vice president of sales and corporate marketing. "Digi-Key's dynamic, Internet-based business model and recognized customer service will make our products and technical collateral more readily available to the global design community who continue to migrate to our integrated power IC solutions."
As the leading integrated Internet-based distributor of electronic components, information about and inventory of millions of products is accessible to customers around the globe, with all products shipped from Digi-Key's single, North American location. The company's integrated business model provides product and support information online to help put engineers and procurement professionals in control as they solve tough product development challenges.
