Altera Corp. Key Developments

Altera Expands Enpirion Power Products Portfolio

Altera has expanded its Enpirion power products portfolio with EN6362QI, a new 6A PowerSoC DC-DC step-down converter. The new PowerSoC (EN6362QI) is a low-VIN (input voltage) power products that offer power density while improving performance in the areas of conversion efficiency, output voltage accuracy, load transient response, and output voltage ripple. These features help system designers meet stringent system power requirements and significantly reduce costs while accelerating time-to-market. The PowerSoC is ideal for powering the Altera Cyclone and MAX families of FPGAs and can optimize power usage in a variety of systems requiring a tiny, accurate, high-efficiency power source. The EN6362QI PowerSoC is 45% smaller than other power modules and 75% smaller than most competing discrete (non-integrated) device implementations. It offers the higher efficiency of any comparable module, along with superior thermal performance, delivering continuous 6A at 85oC ambient temperature with no de-rating. The EN6362QI PowerSoC is designed and manufacturing-tested as a complete power system, which results in very low FIT (failure in time) rates and dramatically improves system reliability when compared to discrete power supply solutions. With optimized total solution size of 170 mm2, the new EN6362QI PowerSoC offers 56 W/cm2 power density, 1.5% output voltage accuracy over line, load, and temperature, excellent load transient and output voltage ripple, full suite of protections and Low EMI.
