SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Monolithic Power Systems (MPS)
(Nasdaq: MPWR), a leading fabless manufacturer of high-performance analog and
mixed-signal semiconductors, announced today the release of the MP2953, the
industry's first fully-programmable controller specifically designed for
Information/Communications and cloud based systems including server core,
memory, storage and any DC/DC application where efficiency maximization is

MP2953, a fully-programmable 6-Phase Controller with telemetry and Auto-Loop
Compensation, is the first product introduced in the programmable power
family, targeting ultra-compact, high density VR/VRM systems. The proprietary
process technology utilized in this product enables MPS to leapfrog its
competition in terms of power density, ease-of-use and reduction in size and
bill of materials. Coupled with MPS's family of Intelli-Phase™ DriverMOS IC's,
the MP2953 also delivers the best-in-class performance in efficiency and
transient response. The Current Sense technique built into MPS Intelli-Phase
IC's allows the MP2953 to monitor and report output current at an extremely
accurate level eliminating the need to overdesign your system while delivering
the most optimized power and efficiency.

Further, the programmability by software implementation using MPS proprietary
graphical user interface (GUI) eliminates the need for traditional "trial and
error" design processes in the lab. Therefore, virtually all parameters are
very easy to program or monitor by using the IC's telemetry feature and
program through the MPS GUI interface. MPS GUI used to program the device is
the most user-friendly interface on the market today and offers an intuitive
control features that allows the power engineer to complete their design and
evaluation in short order. The MP2953's digital power management and control
features provide real-time intelligence which allows the system designer to
build a system that adapts to their conditions while optimizing efficiency.
Finally, MPS's proprietary auto-tune technology allows for changes in the load
and temperature enabling power savings under even extreme light load

"I'm very pleased with the positive feedback from our customers and am
particularly proud of our software and silicon designers who developed this
innovative solution. Our programmable power product family set us apart from
the competition. We feel that we have succeeded in introducing the easiest to
use and the best performing digital solutions out there today," said Michael
Hsing, CEO of Monolithic Power Systems (MPS).
