IR’s Family of CHiL Digital PWM Controllers and Integrated PowIRstage® Solutions Provide Optimized End-to-End Solutions with PMBusTM for Next-Generation Computing Platforms

International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced its latest generation of highly versatile, PMBus™ enabled, CHiL digital PWM controllers and integrated PowIRstage® solutions that significantly improve efficiency and reduce board space and component count in a variety of mid-range to high-end server, desktop and computing applications.

IR’s new digital controllers meet Intel VR12 and VR12.5 specifications, and support multiphase designs from 1 to 8 phases operating 1 to 2 loops. These digital controllers can be used in combination with a choice of seven new PowIRstage® products to deliver an optimized high-performance end-to-end multiphase solution for CPU and DDR memory applications.

These latest generation CHiL controllers offer enhanced features over the previous generation including significant expansion in the PMBus™ command set, substantial reduction in quiescent current to enable higher peak efficiency, min/max telemetry recording and an improved high-speed phase balance algorithm.

“Our latest generation CHiL digital controller family and PowIRstage® solutions offer a complete optimized, full-featured, high-performance end-to-end solution satisfying the challenging requirements of leading-edge next-generation CPU and DDR memory designs for servers, high-end motherboards and other computing systems. These new solutions incorporate our latest silicon technologies to boost in-circuit efficiencies and offer a substantial upgrade in system-level telemetry and reporting, fault protection and PMBus™ capability,” said Carl Smith, Marketing Director, IR’s Enterprise Power Business Unit.

IR’s latest PowIRstage® solutions integrate a high performance driver, control and synchronous MOSFETs with accurate, temperature compensated, on-chip current sense reporting and provide cycle-by-cycle over-current protection to self-protect against harsh circuit conditions such as inductor saturation events. Temperature sensing, reporting and over-temperature protection are also available in addition to a fault-flag output. These PowIRstage® devices are offered in 6x6mm PQFN packages, rated at 40A, 50A and 60A with over-molded and exposed top options available providing flexibility to achieve optimal thermal design.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

I think DevOps is now a rambunctious teenager - it's starting to get a mind of its own, wanting to get its own things but it still needs some adult supervision," explained Thomas Hooker, VP of marketing at CollabNet, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
