Lattice expands hot-swap application coverage
June 01, 2010 // Julien Happich
Lattice Semiconductor added a higher performance device to its second generation Power Manager II product family, the ispPAC-POWR1220-02 which 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 ADC ICs used for power supply voltage and current measurements, and DC-DC converter trimming and margining control ICs.
Support for the new ispPAC-POWR1220-02 is included in the updated PAC-Designer version 5.3.
The PAC-Designer tool suite provides design and verification tools for Lattice mixed signal devices. It comes with a complete design environment, including everything needed for design, implementation, simulation and programming of supported devices.
In addition to the new device support, a comprehensive PAC-Designer software User Guide is now available for download.
Lattice's PAC-Designer software for Windows is available now at no charge for download from the Lattice website, http://www.latticesemi.com/pac-designer.
