Digital Power Management Solutions

Highly Integrated and Scalable Digital PowerSoC Modules

Powering embedded devices – including FPGAs, processors, and ASICs – is becoming increasingly more challenging. Designers must:

  • Meet rigorous power performance requirements
  • Physically fit a growing number of power rails in shrinking or more feature-rich form factors
  • Stay within system power and thermal budgets
  • Deliver reliable systems on budget and on time

Digital power converter solutions from the Intel® Enpirion® Power Solutions series are designed to deliver the power performance, programmability, telemetry, efficiency, and power density needed to get the most out of high-performance embedded systems – with the same simplicity and ease of use that is standard with all Enpirion PowerSoCs.

What Are Intel® Enpirion® Digital PowerSoC Modules?

Intel® Enpirion® digital PowerSoC modules are DC-DC step-down power converters that integrate a digital controller, power stages, inductor, and compensation into a small, power dense form factor. The family utilizes a digital control architecture and includes a digital communication and control interface.

The digital control architecture features two digital PID (proportional integral derivative) control loop compensators: One for steady-state operation, and one optimized for load transients. This multi-mode control enables Enpirion digital PowerSoCs to achieve high accuracy, low output ripple, and excellent transient response while minimizing the amount of output capacitance required.

An integrated PMBus-compatible digital communication and control interface enables dynamic device programmability, access to real-time system telemetry, and programmable fault protection and diagnostics.

Enable High Performance, Intelligent, and Flexible Power Management

Optimized for Embedded Power Performance

Intel® Enpirion® digital PowerSoCs are defined, design, and validated to meet the high-performance power requirements of FPGAs, ASICs, and other embedded devices. They deliver incredible output voltage regulation by achieving better than 0.5% accuracy, less than 1% ripple, and less than 3% transient deviation while minimizing the required bulk capacitance. The family can also be used to easily implement Intel® FPGA SmartVID capability to lower system power consumption.

Optimized for Ease of Design

Not only are Intel® Enpirion® digital PowerSoCs available in highly integrated, footprint-compatible options to maximize design scalability, reuse, and flexibility, they are also pre-loaded with configurations optimized for performance and cost trade-offs – get the benefits of digital power without the complexity of digital power design!

Optimized for Board and System Design

Intel® Enpirion® digital PowerSoCs enable intelligent system power management with access to real time telemetry (voltage, current, and temperature) and comprehensive system health monitoring. They also simplify hardware design by reducing bulk capacitance for a more compact, reliable design, and a small, power dense overall total solution that minimizes thermal derating and saves board space and enables closer placement to the load for less power loss†.
