Digital DC/DC controllers programmable from 375kHz to 1.25MHz

March 09, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Powervation's latest series of digital DC/DC controllers, the PV3203 and PV3205, provides higher switching frequency, new configurable alert functionality, phase loss fault detection, and many other new features for high performance boards and gaming motherboards.

The chips come with Powervation’s unique Auto-Control, the auto-tuning mode of Powervation’s leading xTune adaptive compensation architecture, which is said to simplify the design process and to improve transient performance.

Designed to deliver optimized performance while interfacing with most leading MOSFET driver and DrMOS solutions, the new controllers are highly flexible and configurable, and have been optimized to power DDR memory, PCH, and other point-of-load rails in computing & communications applications. The dual phase digital DC/DC controllers offer a programmable 0.6V to 5.5V VOUT range, with voltage tracking, margining and sequencing. Programmable frequency ranges from 375kHz to 1.25MHz.
