SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Avnet Internix, a subsidiary of Avnet's global Electronics Marketing group (Avnet EM) and ROHM Semiconductor, (ROHM) a Japanese IC manufacturer, have collaborated to jointly design and develop a power supply module board optimized for Xilinx 7 series FPGAs and Zynq™-7000 all programmable SoC's evaluation kits. Avnet EM is a major electronics component and embedded technology solutions distributor also providing associated design and supply chain services. ROHM is a leading Japanese analog IC and power module semiconductor designer and manufacturer.
ROHM is the first Japanese electronics manufacturer to join forces with Avnet's global team of design engineers to develop a high quality and high reliability power supply module solution that can live up to the Japanese market's requirements and can also be supported globally by an established sales support team. Avnet Internix will introduce ROHM's new power supply module board commercially for the Avnet-designed Mini-Module Plus Development System within this month, July 2013.
Xilinx is the world's leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs. FPGAs are capable of being re-configured after manufacturing by field application engineers (FAEs) and designers via circuitry rewriting languages like HDL. Xilinx and Avnet EM have been collaborating for over 25 years on the design and manufacturing of a broad range of evaluation boards, kits and reference designs featuring core Xilinx chips. Avnet EM product specialists offer sales and technical support services for all these boards and kits worldwide. Avnet Internix has been an active technology marketing, distribution and support services company in the Japanese market since 2005.
ROHM's power module solution utilizes the BD95601MUV/BD95602MUV power supply ICs, with H3 Reg™ technology, ensuring outstanding high-speed responses to meet Xilinx's 7 series FPGAs power tolerance and sequencing guidelines for startup and precise power supply voltage regulations, including eight different power supply voltages from the 12 V input. It not only has high-speed transient response capabilities, but performs at 95% high efficiency, and can maintain high efficiency even in light load condition with SLLM/QLLM pulse skip mode. To see details of this power module including high-efficiency features and low-load (pulse skipping) mode, see ROHM power module page on Avnet's design resource center.
