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.
