TI releases industry’s smallest, fully-integrated PMICs for SSD integrity
Texas Instruments Inc. says it has released the world’s smallest power management ICs for SSDs, hybrid and other flash memory applications. Three new programmable 2.25Mhz/DC/DC step-down converters (LM10504, LM10503 and LM10506) with an alleged 95% peak efficiency support core processor, memory and I/O voltages, along with a general-purpose, 3-V, 250-mALDO regulator for host controller reference.
The PMIC works with the controller IC to regulate incoming supplied voltage to maximize watts with data and design integrity in mind, making systems more reliable.
“Each PMIC functions cooperatively with a controller IC to optimize the supply voltage for low power conditions and features a deep sleep mode option that lowers the core ASIC voltage and turns off the Flash and input/output rails to obtain maximum system efficiency. The LM10504 and LM10506 also include power-down data protection that ensures that the SSD controller completes the writing operation during unexpected power failure.” TI said on its website.
