The Intel® Enpirion® Power Solutions EM2260 is a fully integrated 60 A PowerSoC synchronous dual-phase buck converter. It features an advanced digital controller, gate drivers, synchronous MOSFETs, and high-performance inductors. Only input and output filter capacitors and a few small signal components are required for a complete solution. A PMBus™ version 1.3 compliant interface provides setup, control, and telemetry.
Differential remote sensing and ±0.5% set-point accuracy provide precise regulation over line, load, and temperature variation. Very low ripple further reduces accuracy uncertainty to provide best in class static regulation for today's FPGAs, ASICs, processors, and DDR memory devices.
The EM2260 can be configured and controlled in any application by two methods, either in pin-strap mode using onboard resistors or using the PMBus interface. The customer can also configure the device during engineering evaluation using the PMBus interface, which offers a high degree of flexibility and programmability, and then use the pin-strap mode when devices are deployed in production. Advanced digital control techniques ensure stability and excellent dynamic performance, and eliminate the need for external compensation components. The Intel Enpirion Digital Power Configurator provides a user-friendly and easy-to-use interface for communicating with and configuring the device.
The EM2260 features high conversion efficiency and superior thermal performance to minimize thermal de-rating limitations, which is key to product reliability and longevity.
