Lattice Launches Low Cost Programmable Power Management Solution for Consumer Applications

September 24, 2006 by Jeff Shepard

Lattice Semiconductor Corp. announced the addition of the programmable, ultra low cost ispPAC®-POWR607 device to its second generation Power Manager II product family. The new devices achieve a sub-$1.00 price point in high volume, targeting many cost-sensitive power management applications in consumer markets such as LCD TV, automotive multimedia systems, GPS receivers, Multimedia Terminal Adapters and set-top boxes. The ispPAC-POWR607 device integrates a complete set of power management functions that typically require multiple ICs.

The POWR607 device uses Lattice's Power Manager architecture. The device can monitor up to 6 circuit board power supplies and generate signals such as a CPU Reset, including pulse stretching and power supply fault interrupt, using the on-chip 16 macrocell CPLD, four programmable timers and 7 outputs (two of which also can be configured as high voltage MOSFET drivers). The POWR607 device can be powered down using an external logic signal, or by an internally generated signal. Once in the power down state, the device draws a mere 10µA from the power supply. The POWR607 devices are packaged in space-saving 5mm x 5mm QFN packages.

Due to its low cost, very small footprint and low power standby feature, the ispPAC-POWR607 is a suitable power management solution in handheld consumer, telecom and industrial applications. All Power Manager devices, including the POWR1220AT8, POWR1014/A, POWR6AT6 and POWR607, provide a standard, off-the-shelf programmable mixed-signal solution for power management across multiple circuit boards. In high volume (100KU+) the price of the ispPAC-POWR607 devices in the 32-pin QFN package and industrial temperature range is $0.95, with samples available immediately.
