Platform Manager Chip

Platform Manager

Centralize control functions with scalable power management

Revolutionary power management architecture – Easily manage up to 36 rails using distributed power sense and centralized controls. Slash time to market and debug time through fault logging.

Change your algorithm, not your board – Instead of reworking your PCB, simply reprogram your Platform Manager device to quickly handle design changes.

Don’t throttle the silicon – Platform Manager’s precision voltage scaling and VID features enable easy control of complex, power-hungry ASICs and SoCs.

Features

  • Centralized power-up/down sequencing control and power supply sensing
  • Lower chip power dissipation using voltage scaling / VID
  • Precision voltage control (<10 mV accuracy) with closed-loop trimming
  • Capture voltage faults (primary cause) within 100 µs with 0.2% (typ) accuracy and store in on-chip flash
  • Quickly modify monitoring thresholds, sequence or timing… even when the system is in the field

Example Solutions

Reduce power and system operating cost by dynamically controlling power dissipation device by device.

  • Dynamic Power Dissipation Control through VID reduces the power consumption of ASICs and processors by more than 30%
  • Improve performance and add functionality to your board without increasing power requirements by controlling voltage using a simple code.
  • Eliminate the need for microcontroller and software to configure DC-to-DC converters.

Enhance board reliability and decrease debug time using robust fault logging.

  • Non Volatile Memory with Time Stamping lets you quickly pinpoint the primary fault even in complex systems with large numbers of supplies.
  • Log all faults as soon as they occur and capture the status of all power supplies. And reliably store the image directly in a flash memory.
  • Capture the primary cause of the board failure – make it possible to easily link flash corruption to a power failure

Reduce field maintenance costs through in-system programmable power management.

  • Reliably change power sequencing algorithms in the field while the system is running, using in-system programmability.
  • Back-up golden Image ensures fail-safe update of power management algorithms.
  • Eliminate the need to send out technicians for field upgrades.

Accurately adjust for brown-outs by quickly switching to back-up power in less than 16µs

  • Maintain power to small cells during brown-out
  • Ride through brown-out periods by automatically switching to a back up through fast, accurate voltage monitoring.

Reduce system cost by implementing reliable hot-swap using lowest cost MOSFETs

  • Implement reliable, high-power hot-swap controller without using expensive big MOSFETs
  • Reduce the total number of MOSFETs required – and use smaller low-cost, conventional MOSFETs

Save development time and effort by reusing a single-chip, scalable power management solution.

  • Enables scalability as the system bandwidth and power requirements grow from 12 to 36 rails in one chip.
  • Simplify power management design process by eliminating the need for partitioning the sequencing algorithms
  • Fine tune supply sequencing enabling reliable board power-up
