Intersil Extends Digital Power Leadership With New PowerNavigator Software and ZL8101 PWM Controller at APEC March 17-21

Also Set to Demonstrate ISL8225M Dual 15-Amp Power Module, Booth 619

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) -   Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog, mixed-signal and power management semiconductors, will feature its most innovative digital power technology at this year's APEC in Long Beach March 17-21, booth 619.

Intersil will introduce its latest version of the proven, popular PowerNavigator digital design system at the conference as well as the ZL8101 digital power management solution. The industry leader in innovative power technology will also highlight its new ISL8225M dual 15-amp power module in a multi-phase current-sharing demonstration capable of delivering up to 90 amps output current with no fans or heat sinks.

Latest PowerNavigator Features Advanced GUI

The PowerNavigator GUI offers a single software platform for all PMBus-enabled Power Management products at Intersil, meeting all user requirements from system design to Implementation. PowerNavigator digital power development software system, featuring an Intuitive graphical user interface with power-centric intelligence that simplifies complexity and saves designers days of development time compared with analog power design solutions.

ZL8101 with Auto Compensation Provides a Flexible Building Block

The Intersil ZL8101 is an adaptive digital DC/DC PWM controller with auto compensation that provides a single buck output with currents up to 50A. Designed to work with an external driver and with DrMOS solutions, it can be used as a flexible building block for 12V and 5V down conversion or paralleled for current sharing with multiple ZL8101 devices in high current designs. The ZL8101 is an ideal solution where size, efficiency and monitoring are critical.

The ISL8225M is the industry's first 30A fully encapsulated power module, and is being adopted in a variety of applications. The module can deliver up to 100W output power from a small 17mm square PCB footprint, and simplifies the design of a high-performance board-mounted power supply. Only a few external components are needed to create a very dense and reliable power solution.
