austriamicrosystems ag-br (AMS) Key Developments

ams Introduces its As721x Autonomous Daylighting Manager

ams introduced its AS721x Autonomous Daylighting Manager, the industry's first integrated chip-scale Internet of Things (IoT)-connected smart lighting manager. This new class of sensor-integrated smart lighting manager solutions delivers cost-effective, IoT-connected, integrated control capabilities to luminaire, light engine and replacement lamp manufacturers. Photopic sensors built with nano-optic filters integrated into the AS721x series are designed to help lighting manufacturers address the growing challenges of energy-saving lighting mandates, including daylighting controls. These challenges are more cost-effectively met by bringing the controls, connectivity, such as Bluetooth, and high-granularity sensing into the luminaires themselves. The AS721x family is ams first platform technology of integrated sensor solutions that provide system-level sensing and control capabilities, greatly reducing system costs and shortening time-to-market. The AS721x Autonomous Day lighting Manager senses the ambient daylight and enables the delivery of constant lux levels in the space by managing subtle adjustments as the amount of outside light varies. Integrating a sensor-based manager into each luminaire optimizes the overall responsiveness and efficiency of the lighting system, maximizing energy savings. The approach also delivers accurate lumen maintenance over time and temperature variations, and allows fully connected luminaire systems to respond to building- or space-level command and control strategies. Additional attributes of the ams AS721x Autonomous Day lighting Manager: 20-pin 2.1 x 2.3mm chip-scale and 4.5 x 4.7mm land grid array package options. Photopic daylighting sensor for accurate ambient light sensing and control. Integrates with industry standard 0-10v controls, driving 0-10v and multi-channel PWM outputs. Standard serial UART (AS7211) for expansion to any standard networking or integrated IR remote control. decoding (AS7210). Network-enabled architecture with a high-level, driverless smart lighting command set for IoT connectivity. via Bluetooth 4.x (BLE), ZigBee, WiFi, Ethernet/PoE or other networks. I2C sensor expansion creating lighting-hosted sensor-bridge capabilities.

ams AG Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2014 and Revenue Guidance for the First Quarter of 2015

ams AG provided earnings guidance for the fourth quarter of 2014 and revenue guidance for the first quarter of 2015. The company pre-announced fourth quarter 2014 revenues of EUR 139.0 million, above the upper end of revenue guidance of EUR 133 to EUR 138 million, and first quarter 2015 revenues expected to grow quarter-on-quarter contrary to typical seasonality. At the same time, ams sees fourth quarter 2014 operating profitability impacted by a faster-than-expected addition of over 40 design engineers and an additional design center as well as two one-time effects. As a consequence, fourth quarter 2014 operating (EBIT) margin is expected to be around 23%, below previously communicated guidance.

ams AG Expands Family of Power Management ICs for Nvidia Tegra and Other Multi-Core ARM Processors

ams AG added to its family of power management ICs (PMICs) for mobile multi-core ARM processors with the AS3722, which provides a complete power-control solution for Nvidia’s Tegra K1 mobile system-on-chip (SoC). ams is also releasing the AS3728, an 8A high-voltage power stage to complement the AS3722’s high-current DC-DC controllers. The AS3728 provides for a streamlined power architecture in embedded systems, since it can supply the high current required by processor cores directly from a 12V power rail. The AS3722 PMIC and multiple AS3728 devices power the Tegra K1 processor in Nvidia’s Jetson TK1 reference design board. The Tegra K1, Nvidia’s latest mobile SoC, features a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU and 192 CUDA graphics processing cores. Together, the AS3722 and the AS3728 power stage provide a space-saving and thermally efficient power solution for advanced multi-core ARM processors. This makes them ideal for use in compact mobile devices such as tablets and notebooks, and in industrial applications such as security cameras and fanless (sealed housing) computers, in which the system designer must carefully manage the temperature of circuit boards carrying multiple high-power components. This is because the AS3722 enables a board layout optimized for thermal performance. Thanks to a patented design innovation by ams, the feedback interface to the AS3722 only requires two wires (one control signal, one temperature signal) instead of the four or five wires typically required by other PMICs. The AS3722 also helps reduce board space requirements, integrating all the power rails required by a sophisticated processor such as the Tegra K1. The AS3722 includes four step-down DC-DC regulators operating at up to 4MHz, three step-down DC-DC controllers, 11 universal LDOs, a real-time clock with a 1µA total current requirement, and a control interface accessed via an I2C or serial peripheral interface. The AS3728 power stage has a highly thermally efficient design and supports two phases, each of 4A (maximum), with an independent control input for each. The device incorporates separate low- and high-side N-channel MOSFETs for each phase. The AS3722’s three DC-DC controllers may each control the two phases of an AS3728, to provide a maximum 24A power output. The 3MHz switching frequency of the DC-DC controllers provides for a fast response to load transients and keeps the size of the external components to a minimum. The DC-DC controllers also implement automatic phase selection, ensuring that the circuit switches between single- and multiple-phase modes depending on the output current, to optimize energy efficiency while maintaining instant full-load capability when required in the event of a load transient.
