This article focuses on the development in the digital power technology. The analog anomaly remains particularly acute in the portable field, where switching frequencies remain at the higher end of the application spectrum and the requirement for low cost makes its presence felt most strongly. Certainly the benefits of programmability, reliability, and functional integration are what Texas Instruments had in mind when it introduced its Fusion Digital Power line of devices. The three devices introduced in March 2005 include the UCD9K digital controller, UCD7K power driver, and the UCD8K.
