Power management solutions drive superior performance and energy efficiency

07-04-2022 | Infineon | Power

Infineon Technologies AG has launched a complete power management providing for compute servers based on Intel's Sapphire Rapids CPU. This new 'pick-and-place' solution uses several of the company's power management devices and technologies that provide optimum power efficiency and performance, comprising XDP digital multiphase controllers, OptiMOS integrated power stages and OptiMOS IPOL voltage regulator. These products help leverage the green potential of data centres.

"These power management solutions combine our software-defined digital controllers with best-in-class integrated power stage and POL converter to deliver outstanding energy efficiency and overall system performance," said Rakesh Renganathan, director of marketing, Power and Sensor Systems Division of Infineon. "By leveraging our cutting-edge technologies, we provide our customers with flexibility in system design to maximise performance across various workloads and system architectures. We are excited to bring this solution to the market and to further digitalise the world."

The XDP hyper transient phase XDPE152 series controllers are based on the ultra-low-power Arm Cortex-M0 for maximum flexibility and optimised performance across workloads and ultra-fast dynamic load response time. The proprietary control algorithms provide ultra-high-speed response by effectively managing pulsating processor peak currents with minimal output capacitance. Also, the software-defined architecture provides unique flexibility for system designers to optimise system performance across different system architectures and processor workloads.

The TDA215xx series of OptiMOS integrated power stages leverage the industry's best OptiMOS 6 technology to offer superior efficiency (>95%) and reliability, significantly reducing system cooling and maintenance costs.

The OptiMOS IPOL TDA38640 converter provides the best transient response facilitated by the company's proprietary Fast Constant ON Time COT control engine and enhanced digital telemetry when operating with Intel's SVID and PMBus.
