DALLAS, Feb. 11, 2013

DALLAS, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
(NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced a power management controller with 4- and 6-bit
voltage identification (VID) interfaces. The LM10011 is the first VID
controller designed to operate along with a point-of-load regulator to adjust
the core voltage (VCORE) of a VID-enabled processor, such as TI's C6000™
power-optimized DSPs and KeyStone multicore DSPs. The LM10011 enables TI's
DSPs to realize their full power savings capability to reduce power
consumption in wireless infrastructure applications. The controller features
industry-leading one-percent output accuracy and adjustable output current
during start-up. For more information and samples, visit

The LM10011 VID controller operates over a 2.97-V to 5.5-V input voltage range
and is a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution. It can be used with any
point-of-load regulator that has a feedback node, such as TI's
high-performance 15-A LM21215 and 25-A TPS56221 synchronous buck regulators.
The LM10011 offers 16 pin-programmable current output options during start-up,
allowing the DSP VCORE to power up various voltages to enable greater system
flexibility and reliability. Watch a video demonstration at

The LM10011 controller joins TI's family of high-accuracy VID products that
include the LM10010, UCD9244, UCD9224, UCD9248 and UCD9222.

Key features and benefits of the LM10011 VID controller

  o16 selectable start-up current options offer flexibility for system
    operation and higher system reliability.
  oOne-percent output voltage accuracy is fully compliant with C6000 VID
  o2.97-V to 5.5-V input voltage range supports both 5-V and 3.3-V bus
  oPin-selectable VID format allows 4-bit and 6-bit VID patterns.
  oPrecision enable supports custom under-voltage lockout (UVLO).

Availability, packaging and pricing

The LM10011 VID controller is available in volume now from TI and its
authorized distributors. Offered in a 10-pinSON package that measures 3-mm by
3-mm by 0.8-mm, the LM10011 is priced at US$0.60 in 1,000-unit quantities.
