Voltage converters and regulators are a vital part of pretty much every semiconductor-based product. They play an outsized role in mobile devices such as cell phones where there are many subsystems operating at different voltages with different power needs. Many portable devices rely on Lithium Ion batteries whose output voltage… Read More
Power Management ICs are a vitally important part of system design. Evidence of this is cited by a Synopsys white paper that mentions how Apple acquired a portion of PMIC developer Dialog Semiconductor that was previously their exclusive PMIC supplier. Clearly Apple had decided that PMIC design was a strategic differentiating… Read More
Magwel is offering a webinar that takes a deeper look at how Power Transistors can be more accurately simulated in converter circuits to provide extremely accurate information about switching efficiency. DC converter circuit efficiency has a big effect on the battery life of mobile devices and can affect performance and efficiency… Read More
PowerMOS devices play a major role in a variety of power converter and control circuits. Some examples of their applications include PMICs, or boost and buck converters. Often these are used in mobile and IoT devices to convert battery voltages to circuit operating voltages.
Due to their size and internal complexity PowerMOS … Read More
