POLs: Integrated Voltage Regulator ICs and Multiphase Chipsets
Volterra’s VT200 family consist of a wide range of low to high current switching regulators for end products such as networking and telecommunication equipment, servers, storage systems, graphics cards. With operating input voltages from 3V to 14V, extremely small board area requirements, versatile reference designs and very high efficiency, these regulators provide a simple, compact solution for point of use power regulation. Solutions range from a 4A regulator requiring only 7 external components to master/slave solutions capable of supplying loads in excess of 100A incorporating industry standard digital interfaces for both control and reporting. This product family offers a wide range of options such as choice of operating frequency, soft start ramp rates, light load efficiency and the ability to sink current.
Multiphase Master and Smart Slaves Chipsets
The VT1000 family provides a high power regulation solution for the exacting demands of CPUs, GPUs and Memory found in servers, storage systems, communication equipment and graphics cards. Featuring versatile Master Controller IC technology and proprietary Smart SlaveTM silicon and packaging technology, Volterra’s chipsets provide unparalleled solutions for the highest efficiency and density in the industry. Compliance with industry standards for the application is assured and design time is minimized by using the Volterra reference designs. Accurate control and reporting via serial bus, power state control and operating parameters such as load line are assured by the Master and Smart Slave technologies featuring loss-less current sensing. Due to the flexible multiphase approach, a single electrical design can easily be scaled to be used for different power levels and can be optimized for cost, board area and performance.
VT300/VT1300 Product Families
