Company’s ‘Power Density Hero’ design tool expanded to cover high-efficiency, single-chip USB port power supply for multi-port fast chargers
San Diego, CA – May 11th, 2023– Silanna Semiconductor, The Power Density Leader, has announced that engineers can now use the company’s Power Density Hero online configuration tool to accelerate the design of multi-port chargers based on its SZPL3002A, the world’s first buck converter Power IC to feature intelligent power sharing.
Combining a high-efficiency synchronous buck converter and an advanced USB PD/FC port controller into a single QFN package measuring just 5 mm x 5 mm, the SZPL3002A power IC significantly reduces the number of components needed to implement multi-port fast charger and adapter applications with each port rated for up to 65W output power. Power sharing and port power re-balancing functionality is available across two, three or four ports, with the controller ensuring that port power adapts to the needs of a particular device, irrespective of when connections are made.
Silanna Semiconductor’s Power Density Hero is an easy-to-use, fast and effective ‘all-in-one’ online design software tool that simplifies and speeds the specification and prototyping of high-efficiency custom AC/DC and DC/DC power applications. With the addition of the SZPL3002A to the devices covered by the tool, registered engineers can use a simple and intuitive interface to enter a variety of key system parameters and performance requirements for target applications built around this highly integrated IC. These include minimum and maximum input voltage, output types and voltage and controller IC types.
When all of the information has been entered, the tool instantly calculates the necessary electronic components and values and automatically sends a personalized, confidential document with comprehensive design specifications, circuit schematics and an optimized bill of materials (BOM) encompassing all devices, power ICs and discrete components.
Mark Drucker, Silanna Semiconductor’s CEO comments: “The SZPL3002A was developed to dramatically simplify multi-port charger applications. By providing the ability to configure a complete SZPL3002A-based solution using our easy-to-use Power Density Hero tool, we have made the design process even easier, helping OEMs to further minimize prototyping and testing times, make better use of internal resources and accelerate time-to-market for their next-generation products.”
