MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 10 -- Sipex Corporation is unveiling the results and hardware implementation of Sipex sponsored research by the University of Toronto. Sipex CEO, Ralph Schmitt, will be meeting with analysts, press, and customers discussing the capabilities and added value of Sipex's digital power technology.
Sipex Corporations digital power technology provides a total system solution bringing together power and management into a single low power high efficient solution. Applications which will benefit from this technology range from networking systems to portable applications. Today's systems have difficulty controlling and monitoring power flow throughout the system. With the capabilities of Sipex's Digital Power Technology, system power optimization becomes a reality with the ability to monitor and control power flow throughout the system with optimization of system performance. The patented low power architecture and digital compensators, define solutions with higher efficiencies and lower power utilization than power solutions today of comparable performance.
Sipex's VP of Engineering, Lee Cleveland, together with researchers from the University of Toronto will be demonstrating a digitally controlled 4 output multi-phase step-down buck regulator. "One of the major obstacles to an effective digital PWM architecture has been power consumption," said Lee Cleveland. "Sipex is known for low power consumption high efficient solutions. The PWM architecture includes a digital PFM capability for high efficient light load operation and a unique low power implementation requiring only 400uA per channel when operating in PWM mode at 10MHz."
