Sipex Files Patent Application for Programmable Digital Power Controller

MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sipex Corporation a semiconductor company that is known for its high performance analog solutions today announced that it has applied for a US patent for a programmable digital power controller.

"This patent application covers a completely new use of digital solutions for power management integrated circuits. This innovation allows for integration of a complete power management system on a single chip, reducing the overall system cost and creating a fully flexible and programmable design. The field of power management is moving toward more digital control, this innovation gives Sipex a strategic advantage," says Lee Cleveland, Sipex's Senior Vice President, Engineering.

With the increase of power system complexity, space constraints, higher currents, and thermal challenges, power control has entered a new era where digital control and management is becoming the solution of choice to increase performance and reliability. According to Darnell Research (2005), digital power control is estimated to become greater than a $2.2 billion dollar market in 2010, and will encompass all aspects of power applications from infrastructure control to hand held portable applications. Examples of digital control usage are found in applications such as power modules for switches and routers, telecom systems, and hard drives.
