Intersil Inc.'s latest multiphase synchronous-buck PWM controller has a 5-bit voltage identification input optimised for the AMD Athlon 64 processor. When combined with Mosfet driver ICs, the ISL6244 provides precise voltage regulation at ±1 per cent. The package is available lead-free. The ISL6244 is a two-to-four phase synchronous-buck PWM controller that drives up to four of Mosfet drivers to form a precision multiphase DC-DC converter.
