Intersil Corp. (Milpitas, CA) announced its new ISL6840 through ISL6845 family of single-ended, current-mode, pulse-width modulated (PWM) controllers designed to improve performance of ac-dc and 48 V dc-dc converters used in telecom, datacom and server applications. Devices in the ISL684x family are high-performance, pin-for-pin upgrades for industry-standard products.
The ISL684x family PWM controllers offer many significant performance advantages. The 5 MHz error amplifier bandwidth is five times wider than existing products, enabling fast transient response, which reduces the need for expensive and bulky output capacitors.
The ISL684x family is available now. The price for quantities of 100-unit to 999-unit quantities is $1.43 for the ISL684xIU (MSOP package) and $1.28 for the ISL684xIB (SOIC package). Both packages are available on tape and reel.
