CMOS single-chip voltage regulator targets data centres

EmPower in California has launched a single-chip integrated voltage regulator built-in CMOS that can be mounted as a bare die without any external components

A startup in California has emerged from stealth mode with a triple output integrated voltage regulator (IVR) in a single CMOS chip measuring 5 x 5mm.

“For the last six years we have been developing the technology to integrate all these components,” said Tim Phillips, CEO and co-founder of EmPower. “We said we were not going to trade off certain things, for example, high efficiency at high frequency, using CMOS and standard packaging,”
