Programmable Devices Reduce Cost Up to 50%; Cut Weeks From Design Time; Monitor Power Supplies with 0.7% Accuracy

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) has announced its third-generation mixed-signal devices, the Platform Manager™ family. The programmable Platform Manager devices are expected to simplify board management design significantly by integrating programmable analog and logic to support many common functions, such as power management, digital housekeeping and glue logic. By integrating these support functions, Platform Manager devices can not only reduce the cost of these functions compared to traditional approaches, but also can improve system reliability and provide a high degree of design flexibility that minimizes the risk of circuit board re-spins.

About the Platform Manager Family

The Platform Manager product family consists of two devices, the LPTM10-1247 and LPTM10-12107. The LPTM10-1247 device can monitor 12 voltage rails and supports 47 digital I/O, while the LPTM10-12107 monitors up to 12 voltage rails and supports 107 digital I/O. Functionally, these devices include both a power management section and a digital board management section. The power management section consists of a programmable threshold, precision differential input comparator block with an accuracy of 0.7%, a 48-macrocell CPLD, programmable hardware timers, a10-bit analog to digital converter and a trim block for the trimming and margining of supplies. The digital board management section consists of a 640-LUT FPGA and programmable logic interface I/O.

MICREL CUTS POWER REQUIREMENT FOR ETHERNET CONNECTIVITY IN HALF

On-chip termination not only eliminates components, simplifies PCB design and reduces system BOM, but also improves overall signal integrity and EMI emissions. The solution is based on Micrel's enhanced mixed-signal design which enables power consumption to be reduced by half compared to the prior generation. These devices provide the MII or RMII interface to transmit and receive data over standard CAT-5 unshielded twisted pair cable or fiber.
