Vidatronic announces power management unit IP core for Samsung Foundry

1 min read

Vidatronic, a provider of analogue power management unit (PMU) and CMOS radio frequency (RF) Intellectual Property (IP) licenses, has released the latest addition to its Power Quencher series.

The VLDS0300LS130 is low dropout (LDO) voltage regulator IP core that has been optimised for battery-powered devices where low power is critical.

The Power Quencher IP core is a low-power, fully-integrated LDO voltage regulator that achieves a low-noise output voltage without the use of external components, saving both package pins and valuable PC board space. These features make it suitable for applications where size, output voltage accuracy, and output noise are a concern, especially for Internet of Things (IoT) and other wireless applications. The IP core can support input voltages from 2.5 to 6.0 V, output voltages from 1.2 to 5.5 V, and provides up to 300 mA of load current.

Vidatronic recently entered into a partnership with Samsung Foundry to provide analogue IP core designs for licensing through SAFE, Samsung Advanced Foundry Ecosystem. Through a collaboration with Samsung Foundry, Vidatronic will help customers to achieve feature and performance advantages in their SoC designs by providing its analogue and PMU technology, silicon-proven in Samsung’s 130nm BCD process technology.

“We are committed to providing certified design enablement solutions to a wide range of customers including existing strategic customers as well as innovative, new start-ups. Through partnerships with IP providers, we will continue to serve customers with a comprehensive set of silicon qualified, application specific IP offerings from the early stage of process technology development,” said Hyungjong Ko, Vice President of IP Development Team at Samsung Electronics. “Vidatronic’s Power Quencher LDO technology is expected to deliver impressive performance benefits as well as area savings for our customers’ SoC designs and we are pleased to work with Vidatronic to strengthen our foundry ecosystem.”

“We have extensive experience with analogue, PMU, and RF design, particularly in advanced processes as low as 5 nm, with a history of first-time success in silicon production,” explained Moises Robinson, Ph.D., President and Co-Founder of Vidatronic. “The release of this Power Quencher IP and the announcement of the partnership with Samsung Foundry will allow customers to more easily leverage our technology to enable faster, more reliable SoC designs with distinct performance advantages over their competition.”

The VLDS0300LS130 Power Quencher® IP core is immediately available.
