3/11/2005 - Summit Microelectronics has announced that its SMB120 nine-channel "Programmable Power Manager" (PPM) IC has won a top-ten award in the power-products category of the EE Times "Ultimate Products" Award competition. EE Times announced the winners in its February 28 issue.
The "Ultimate Products" are selected by EE Times journalists and then subjected to a large-scale peer review of more than 1,000 engineers who participate by evaluating the merits of the most significant products introduced each quarter.
The SMB120 is the initial offering in the industry's first family of "Programmable Power Managers" (PPM's) that uniquely integrates power delivery with power control in a single IC. Optimized for battery powered consumer electronics, the device forms the core of a nine-channel power supply integrating highly accurate voltage regulation (+/-0.5%) with advanced functions such as input/output monitoring, output sequencing/margining, channel phase control, and system fault reporting.
Summit's SMB120 is ideal for a vast array of consumer products, including digital cameras/camcorders (DSC/DCC), 3G smart phones, portable video and MP3 players (PMP), portable and automotive DVD players, global positioning systems (GPS), and LCD monitors and TVs.
Introduced in November 2004, the SMB120 is being shipped now in production quantities.
