ROHM High-Performance Switching Regulator Controllers for FPGAs
ROHM has recently announced that its power supply module has been selected for use with Xilinx’s 7 Series FPGAs and in its Zynq ®-7000 All Programmable SoC evaluation kit.
This power supply module, designed completely in-house, employs 2 types of ROHM switching regulator controller ICs: BD95601MUV (x1) and BD95602MUV (x6). Although Avnet has sold a number of Xilinx FPGA evaluation kits, this marks the first time a power supply module has been adopted from a Japanese manufacturer.
These ICs, which serve as reference designs, are available as separate units as well. Here, we take a closer look at the characteristics and key technologies of ROHM’s high-performance, versatile switching regulator controller ICs, ideal for not only FPGAs but for a wide range of other applications as well.
