Digital power control enables sophisticated configuration and diagnostics capabilities not typically found in switching regulators and PWM controllers. Most controllers today are analog, which provide high performance but cannot be digitally configured. Some controllers now provide digital control, but it is achieved via fully digital topologies, which require high-speed data converters and power-hungry DSPs.
Semtech’s approach takes our best-in-class, advanced adaptive on-time core, which is embedded in our EcoSpeed® controllers, and wraps it with a digital interface to provide the benefits of high performance analog and the flexibility of digital control.
