Intersil – ISL68200/201: Digital Hybrid PWM Controllers with PMBus Simplify Power Supply Design

intersil-logo      NextArticle
The ISL68200 and ISL68201 digital hybrid controllers provide the performance of Intersil’s R4TM control loop with the benefits of a digital PMBus interface. Both controllers are fully configurable with external pin-strap resistors, which provide a familiar engineering design flow and eliminate the need for non-volatile memory. Designers can use the PMBus interface and Intersil’s PowerNavigator GUI software to read back VIN, VOUT, IOUT and temperature telemetry, monitor fault reporting bits, and conduct on the fly changes to the VOUT setpoint. The ISL68200 can drive external MOSFETs directly, while the ISL68201 is paired with Intersil’s DrMOS (integrated driver and MOSFET) power stage to create a complete voltage regulator solution.
