Renesas Electronics Expands Portfolio of Simple Power Supply ICs With Innovative Wide Input DC/DC Regulators Targeting Smart Grid and Industrial Applications; Contributes to Further Reduction of Power Supply Design Workload With the New On-Chip Functionalities Including Auto PFM and Battery Backup Functions
August 19, 2014
Renesas Electronics America, a leading supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today expands its portfolio of Simple Power Supply ICs, with innovative 16V input capable synchronous buck regulators that deliver up to 3A continuous current to loads at voltages as low as 0.8V. The new power supply ICs are ideal for systems requiring even lower power consumption in standby mode, and systems requiring backup power in case of power outage. The devices target applications in the industrial, office equipment, consumer, networking, smart grid, and other fields. By reducing the power supply design workload, the new devices lower power consumption and improve the compactness of the overall system for improved power efficiency and lower BOM cost. The new SimplePower Supply ICs are available in four series with different DC/DC converter output counts and output voltages. Battery backup functionality is availability in the: RAA23012X series, RAA23013X series, RAA23022X series, and the RAA23023X series. Each series comprises three product versions, for a total of 12 new devices.
