The Flexible P9180A PMIC Delivers Highly Scalable Power for a Variety of Applications through IDT’s Innovative DPU Technology
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced general availability of the IDT® P9180A, a next-generation, highly integrated scalable power management integrated circuit (PMIC) targeting a broad array of applications in the IoT, server, micro-server, storage, embedded and industrial market segments. The programmable P9180A PMIC delivers flexibility and ease of use while supporting the varying power requirements of multiple market segments and meeting the power needs of today’s SoCs, FPGAs, and ASICs.
The P9180A achieves its power scalability through IDT’s innovative distributed power architecture, which enables engineers to scale power beyond the P9180A’s standalone capacity by adding distributed power units (DPUs) to the system. The IDT P9148 DPU communicates using a proprietary two-wire interface design, greatly reducing power subsystem complexity and enabling system designers to optimally distribute power resources throughout the system. This distribution helps engineers avoid or resolve the EMI, thermal and signal integrity issues often associated with PMICs.
