Today in Dublin, Ireland, Endura Technologies (International) Ltd, announced the ET7700 product family, the industry’s first 28nm embedded voltage regulator (eVR™). The Endura ET7730 is a 3-phase 6A switching regulator. It is integrated inside the SoC package within 5mm2 area and less than 200um height including inductors.
The ET7730 product delivers exceptional performance in a very small form factor module with integrated passives and outstanding cost and BOM savings. The ET7700 product family will include a fully integrated stand-alone module in 2018.
“This milestone is an important achievement and the culmination of several years of intense design, development and concept validation enablement effort with various partners,” said Taner Dosluoglu, CEO, Endura Technologies.
“We have designed the most advanced embedded switching voltage regulator that delivers high performance while using very small inductors (<6nH) and capacitors (<0.47uF) providing high efficiency, small form factor (<1mm3), PCB area and BOM savings, as well as support for high-definition DVFS,” Dosluoglu concluded.
Key features of the Endura ET7730 3-phase, 6A embedded switching voltage regulator:
- High-performance 70MHz-130MHz programmable dc-dc buck converter
- Ultra-fast Dynamic Voltage Control (DVC) for DVFS, >100x improvement in slew rate (>500mV/100ns)
- Small L/C components ideal for land-side/top-side in-package integration
- Wide output voltage regulation range: 0.1V-1.1V
- High efficiency, flat over entire load range
- Seamless, automatic PFM/PWM operation & phase shedding without hysteresis
- Built-in fast digital current reporting in <1us with no external components
Evaluation boards are available for testing and validation.
Earlier this year, Endura Technologies announced a commercial partnership with MediaTek Inc. aiming at demonstrating power, performance, and area improvements at advanced process nodes. The ET7730 marks the first milestone of Endura’s embedded power solutions, using deep submicron technology, developed through their R&D centers in Dublin, Ireland and San Diego, California.
