Microchip Technology introduced their MCP19111 Digitally Enhanced Power Analog controller. The MCP19111 is a new hybrid, digital and analog power-management device. The controller increases the capabilities of high-efficiency, analog-based power designs. The MCP19111 controller is priced at $2.81 each. It is available in a 5×5 mm, 28-pin QFN package.
Lattice Semiconductor introduced the ispPAC-POWR1014-2 and ispPAC-POWR1014A-2. The new devices are the latest members of Power Manager II product family. The ispPAC-POWR1014-2 and ispPAC-POWR1014A-2 devices integrate higher voltage charge pumps with programmable current to control MOSFETs in Hot Swap and Sequencing applications. High volume (250KU+) pricing for the ispPAC-POWR1014-2 devices in the 48-pin TQFP package and industrial temperature range is $1.95, with the ispPAC-POWR1014A-2 devices priced 10% higher. Samples are available now.
