TI Introduces 1V, 13-A Power Module for High-Speed DSPs, Microprocessors

11/21/2002 - Texas Instruments announced its first non-isolated, integrated power module that delivers voltages as low as 1V at 13 Amps (A), which helps designers speed development time and reduce cost. The PT6714 switching regulator power module operates from a 3.3V input bus to provide low-voltage, high-current power source for the latest generation of multiprocessor and high-end computing applications, such as workstations, servers and other large systems that employ multiple microprocessors, digital signal processors (DSPs), application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) or field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

The PT6714 is the newest addition to the PT6715 family of integrated power modules from TI that deliver up to 13A with output voltages from 1V to 3.3V from either a 5V or 3.3V input bus. The output voltage from the PT6714 is tightly regulated, with an adjustment trim of +5 percent/-30 percent.

Unlike discrete devices the PT6714 is a fully qualified and tested solution. The PT6714 can also be vertically mounted, which reduces space requirements. The additional room allows OEMs to design systems with additional functionality in the same form factor.

Availability, Packaging and Pricing
The PT6714 integrated power module is available in volume today from TI and the company´s authorized distributors. The device is available in surface-mount, vertical through-hole or horizontal through-hole styles (2.58" x 1.025" x 0.5"). The ExcaliburTM copper case can be soldered to a host PC board, providing increased shock, vibration resistance and electromagnetic interference reduction. Suggested pricing for the PT6714 is $19.53 per 1,000 units.
