Intersil Corp (ISIL) on Aug. 15, 2016 announced the ISL91127 and ISL91128 high efficiency buck-boost regulators. The latest in Intersil’s industry-leading buck-boost family, the new devices feature 4.5A switches, best-in-class efficiency up to 96%, and a compact footprint ideal for providing system power or powering the peripherals in battery-operated devices. They offer the industry’s lowest quiescent current of 30µA for superior light load efficiency.
In hand-held device applications where the input voltage may be higher or lower than the output voltage, buck-boost regulators improve efficiency and provide longer battery life compared to a boost regulator plus bypass solution. With increasing demands for smaller and smaller footprints, Intersil’s ISL9112x compact QFN and WLCSP packages enable power designs that maximize efficiency while providing flexibility and ease of design.
The ISL91127 and ISL91128 operate in buck, boost or buck-boost mode, depending on the relation between input and output voltages, and provide smooth transitions between modes to prevent noise and glitches. This capability, combined with patented Intersil technology for delivering superior light load efficiency with ultra-low quiescent current, maximizes efficiency under all conditions. This is essential to improve battery life by reducing power drain and heat dissipation in portable and mobile applications.
The new buck-boost regulators’ wide input voltage range of 1.8V to 5.5V supports multiple battery topologies, and their wide output voltage range of 1V to 5.2V combined with 3A output current provide the ultimate in design flexibility. The ISL91128 also features I2C programmable dynamic output voltage adjustability, which eliminates feedback resistors and allows the reuse of the same design for multiple output voltage needs.
“Hand-held device designers are constantly challenged to create smaller, more efficient products whether it is the latest wearable, a portable medical device or next-generation smartphone,” said Andy Cowell, senior vice president of Mobile Power Products at Intersil. “Intersil specializes in providing the most efficient power delivery with excellent transient response. Our latest buck-boost regulators leverage generations of experience in the most demanding mobile applications to provide customers with extended battery life in a compact, easy-to-use package.”

Welcome to the Artificial Intelligence Revolution
AI is creating new ways for people to engage with technology and with one another. Various forms of AI already power some of the world’s most popular consumer experiences. Apple’s Siri leverages natural language processing to recognize voice commands. Facebook’s deep learning facial recognition algorithm can instantly identify a person with nearly 98 percent accuracy. And Amazon, Netflix and Spotify all utilize machine learning to understand how each item in their massive catalogs relates to the other and each customer’s preferences.
However, the technical expertise and infrastructure required to develop AI solutions are beyond the reach of most companies. They must bring together massive and diverse data sets, which requires significant engineering resources to manage complex data integration processes. Specialized predictive models must then be built to extract value from the data and continuously learn from it, requiring extensive data science expertise. And infrastructure and DevOps support are required to maintain these models and keep all of these processes up and running. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, bringing results—the insights and recommendations from the models—to users within the context of their business requires complex integrations.
