SMPS & Digital Power Conversion Solutions

Microchip has the benefits of digital power conversion, including higher power density,
lower system cost, and accelerated innovation

Microchip SMPS & Digital Power Conversion Solutions Self contained SMPS solutions and rich peripherals of Microchip's dsPIC – digital power devices enable engineers to design solutions that do not require much in the way of external support chips. Thus, when using the dsPIC DSC SMPS solution, developers can obtain a 20% reduction in component count over other solutions. In addition to space and cost-saving features, the dsPIC DSC SMPS solution has special features that enable advanced power conversion. Included among these features is an intelligent power peripheral. Independent PWM, ADC, and analog comparator peripherals form the intelligent power peripheral via an internal configurable control fabric that enables them to interact directly with one another.
