60 A Digital POL Module Provides Full-Features & PMBus™ Programmability in 1 Inch2 Design
Cork, Ireland, and San Jose, CA, – Powervation Ltd. (www.powervation.com), the leader in Intelligent Digital Power™ IC solutions, today announced that its PV3012 digital controller is being used by new TDK-Lambda iJB Series high-current digital POL modules.
The iJB series products support low-voltage, high-current operation while providing ±0.5% set-point accuracy over line, load, and temperature range. While the PMBus functionality of the module provides real-time telemetry of voltage, current, and temperature and enables full programmability of the DC/DC converter, the iJB series products also employ function setting pins, enabling them to be used in non-PMBus applications. The target applications for the iJB series include: servers, routers and other Information Communication Technology (ICT) equipment, T&M and industrial equipment.
Comments David Norton, Vice President of Marketing, TDK-Lambda Americas Inc.: “Using Powervation’s intelligent auto-tuning technology, Auto-Control®, the iJB POL modules bring better dynamic performance and system stability to the application - autonomously managing circuit and load variations due temperature, component tolerances, ageing and board impedances.”
Powervation’s Auto-Control® is the industry’s leading intelligent auto-tuning technology. The patented adaptive compensation technology optimizes dynamic performance and system stability in real-time without requiring any noise injection or the drawbacks of periodic techniques. This is a key benefit for modules and other designs that drive unknown or variable output loads, and addresses the challenges of load parameter drift that occurs over temperature and time.
Comments Powervation’s CEO, Mike McAuliffe: “TDK- Lambda’s iJB series delivers industry-leading power density with this 60 A solution requiring only one square inch of board space. Optimized system and component design and deployment of the advanced digital control features provided by Powervation’s PV3012, has resulted in higher efficiency & reliability, faster transient performance and precision voltage control over all conditions.”
The iJB Series POL module is available now (www.tdk-lambda.com/about/press/20140410_1.html). The PV3012 and other digital control ICs are available from Powervation.
