Lattice Semiconductor Corporation announced the addition of a new, higher performance device to its second generation Power Manager II product family. The ispPAC®-POWR1220-02 device integrates a higher voltage charge pump with programmable current to control MOSFETs in Hot-swap and Sequencing applications. The new device is pin compatible with existing Power Manager II devices and integrates power management functions that typically require multiple ICs, including Hot-swap Controllers, Reset Generators, Voltage Supervisors, Sequencers and Trackers. The ispPAC-POWR1220-02 also integrates Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) ICs used for power supply voltage and current measurements, and DC-DC converter trimming and margining control ICs.
customers can take advantage of a significant reduction in their cost per power management function across a wide range of applications,” said Shyam Chandra, Lattice’s Mixed Signal Product Marketing Manager. “With these increased hot-swap controller options, the Power Manager II device family can be standardized across an even wider range of systems. With the newly updated PAC-Designer® design tool suite and User Guide, Lattice Power Manager products continue to lead the way to easier, more reliable board power designs.”
About the Lattice PAC-Designer Tool Suite
The PAC-Designer tool suite provides design and verification tools for Lattice mixed signal devices. The PAC-Designer software is a complete design environment, including everything needed for design, implementation, simulation and programming of supported devices.
Support for the new ispPAC-POWR1220-02 is included in the updated PAC-Designer version 5.3. In addition to the new device support, a comprehensive PAC-Designer software User Guide is now available for download.
