MaxLinear announces optimized power management IC for low power FPGAs and SoCs

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced a Universal PMIC specifically designed to power a broad range of low power FPGAs, DSPs, and microprocessors, the company said.

The MxL7704 includes four synchronous step-down buck regulators that provide system, memory, I/O and core power from 1.5A to 4A. An on-board 100mA LDO provides clean 1.5V to 3.6V power for analog sub-systems. This PMIC utilizes a conditional sequencing state machine that is flexible enough to meet the requirements of virtually any processor. The MxL7704-X and MxL7704-A are the first standard configurations to be launched based on this unique universal PMIC.
