IR's Ultrabook™Vcore Power Management Solution Named a 2012 Hot 100 Product by EDN Magazine
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today announced that EDN has named IR's complete Ultrabook™ Vcore power management solution as one of the "100 Hot Products of 2012." The 2012 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.
IR's IR3588 CHiL® digital control IC and IR3552 and IR3548 single- and dual-phase PowIRstage™ devices deliver the industry's smallest solutions that meet Intel's VR12.6 specifications for 15W and 25W Ultrabook™ laptop computers that significantly extend battery life. The IR3588 matched with the dual-phase IR3548 is optimized for high performance Ultrabooks up to 25W while the IR3588 paired with the single-phase IR3552 is designed for standard Ultrabooks up to 15W.
"As a market leader in enterprise power, and a driving force in the adoption of digital control into the data center, communications, computing and graphics markets, we are pleased that IR's power management solutions designed to meet Intel's specifications for Ultrabooks have received recognition from the editors of EDN magazine," said Adam White, Senior Vice President, Global Sales.
IR's IR3588 and optimized single-phase and dual-phase IR3552 and IR3548 PowIRstage devices reduce footprint by more than 50 percent compared to leading monolithic solutions and offer a 40 percent smaller footprint compared to alternative reference designs.
Additionally, the IR solutions extend battery life as a result of the IR3588's low quiescent current while offering lower operating current and sleep state power of less than 1mW, which exceeds Intel's VR12.6 Ultrabook power specifications. Battery life is further enhanced with IR's Regenerative Braking technique which returns energy to the battery that is normally lost when waking a laptop computer from a sleep state.
The complete list of EDN's Hot 100 products can be found online or within the December 14, 2012 issue of EDN Magazine.
