High-speed designs use digital components with very fast edge rates in their output signals which can be subjected to significant distortion and degradation creating high bit-error-rates and lower data throughput.  Insertion and reflection losses, crosstalk and impedance mismatch, are all factors, amongst others, influencing the integrity of a transmitted signal.

Empower’s E-CAP silicon capacitors provide wide bandwidth low impedance highly stable decoupling capacitors capable of being placed close and even integrated into an SoC substrate.

Empower Semiconductor is developing power management solutions enabling full unrestricted speed and performance of the latest xPUs.

  • High power density
  • High bandwidth conversion
  • Low power distribution losses
  • Vertical Power

The ability to process data and perform complex calculations at high speeds has been intensified in recent years by leaps in technologies such as artificial intelligence, 3-D imaging and autonomous driving. These technologies have exacerbated the need for faster and more complex processors and architectures.

Equipment designed to operate within a high magnetic field environment can experience power failures or abnormal operating conditions due to the force the magnetic field imposes on ferromagnetic material-based electronics.

Moreover, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices can record false or distorted images due to the inferences from such electronics. Empower’s IVRs regulators use non-ferromagnetic air-core inductors ideal for operating in harsh magnetic environments.

Data being communicated and processed around the globe is rapidly growing, driving the need for a new generation of faster data processing components and elements in data centers and datacom equipment.

Empower Semiconductor offers novel fully integrated power management solutions that both increase performance and solve the power density challenge of space-constrained data-intensive applications.

System-on-Modules (SOMs) and Computer-on-Modules (CoMs) provide all components of an embedded processing system (processors, communication interfaces, memory blocks, power management, etc.) on a single production-ready printed circuit board (PCB). This modular approach makes them ideal for embedding into a variety of end systems and applications.Empower’s IVRs provide high-density configurable multi-rails regulators enabling rapid and flexible prototyping.

Chiplet architectures are rapidly gaining popularity over monolithic designs in developing complex SoCs. While providing increased performance, design flexibility and upgradability, they do, however, require more complex power management and PCB routing.

Empower’s IVRs can be integrated as an additional chiplet into an SoC increasing the power delivery efficiency and simplifying PCB routing.

Empower Semiconductor Powers up Integrated Voltage Regulator Sales

Aug 20, 2020 | Press Release

DMR Technical Sales Appointed as Sales Representatives

Milpitas, Calif., August 20th, 2020 Empower Semiconductor, the Integrated Voltage Regulator (IVR) world leader, today announced the appointment of DMR Technical Sales as technical sales representatives supporting partners in Northern California and Nevada.

Empower Semiconductor recently announced its revolutionary Empower IVR™ product platform, the EP70xx family. Empower achieved the complete integration of a triple output DC/DC power supply into a single tiny 5mm x 5mm package, with no external components! Up to 10x higher current density, 3x tighter accuracy during transients, and 1000x faster dynamic voltage scaling than leading competitors.

“The customer demand and interest in our game-changing technology have been tremendous. The impact it has had on their systems and digital IC’s are outstanding,” said Steve Shultis, Senior Vice President WW Sales, and Marketing at Empower Semiconductor. “The addition of the technical sales team from DMR further strengthens our customer application support. DMR has an impressive track record of technical design support enabling an extensive range of innovative design and manufacturing within Silicon Valley”.

Empower’s patented digitally configurable hardware platform has simplified the adoption of DC/DC converters for design engineers. With a single footprint, no external components, extensive programmability, and a wide range of output configurations, power designers can quickly utilize the EP70xx across nearly all designs and platforms. By having multiple entire power supplies in a single IC package, the usual concerns of component variation and sourcing, synchronization, and stability are all either eliminated or reduced significantly. 

 “We are delighted to represent Empower Semiconductor for our customers. Their innovation in power management not only achieved industry-leading performance and density but what excites us is they offer a mix of customer applications with a simplified design process”, said Michael McGuirk, Partner at DMR Technical Sales. “General power design is the last action in our customers’ designs. Empower has made it easier to place the EP70xx on the smallest of PCB areas (5mm x 5mm package) with no discrete components, saving time and space, and achieving incredible density performance. This single-chip IVR is the Holy Grail’ in power management! The DMR team and customers are very impressed.”

About Empower Semiconductor 

The exponential increase in the amount of data being communicated and processed around the globe is driving the energy consumption of datacenters and communications networks to 17% of total electricity demand worldwide by 2030(1), dramatically increasing pollution, carbon emissions and cost.  Empower Semiconductor was founded with the mission to “minimize the energy footprint of the digital economy” by developing novel fully integrated power management solutions that both increase the performance and reduce power consumption of energy-hungry, data-intensive applications.

Traditional power solutions require dozens of discrete components with big footprints, complex designs and deliver power inefficiently with poor response times and inaccuracies. Empower Semiconductor’s patented IVR technology integrates dozens of components into a single IC increasing efficiency, shrinking footprints by 10x and delivering power with unprecedented simplicity, speed & accuracy and with zero discrete components. The Empower IVR™ technology solves the power density challenge to address a wide range of applications including mobile, wearables, 5G, AI, and data centers. In 2020 the capacitor technology platform was added to further address power density. E-CAP revolutionized the capacitor industry as the world’s smallest, highest performing, and incredibly reliable capacitor for wearables, mobile, and SoC applications. The company is based in Milpitas, CA and is led by a team of highly experienced power experts and executives.
