Power Manager For Ultra-Mobile PCs Is Industry First

Supporting the 2008 version of Intel's low-power architecture (LPIA), the MB39C308 emerges as the first single-chip power management IC for ultra-mobile PCs. The chip delivers power to the system, memory, and chipsets and also meets the next-generation LPIA requirement for a six-channel dc/dc converter control circuit while integrating other peripherals onto the chip. Exploiting LDMOS technology and revising the transistor structure, the device supplies power from a lithium-ion battery at reportedly high-efficiency rates without dispersion. Additionally, it packs a switching FET capable of delivering drive currents from 1.5A to 3.5A. Samples, in 208-pin BGAs, will be available in November with prices starting at $9 each.
