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.”

Nuance Communications Inc. (NUAN) on September 8, 2016 announced that its Dragon TV voice technology is powering the Orange France Orange TV experience with its mobile app for Android and iOS, delivering the first voice-enabled trans-service IPTV experience in France. Orange TV customers will have the ability to find shows, movies, and other content by speaking into the app on their smartphone or tablet – greatly enhancing usability and content discoverability.
Orange TV’s new voice interface makes it incredibly fast and simple for subscribers to find what they’re looking for, whether its live, On Demand or recorded – all through Orange TV’s mobile app that lets users speak, search and discover content on the set-top box, as well as content accessible from the mobile app itself. Rather than keying in the names of shows letter by letter, people can simply say “Watch Game of Thrones,” or “Switch to “True Detectives.” Even more gratifying is the ability to quickly search and discover movie and show titles by genre – even as specific as “Buy a comedy from the nineties with Gérard Depardieu in HD.” Subscribers can even record and navigate the program guide by voice.
“The connected and digital home should make life simpler, not more complex. In pursuit of a powerful and yet intuitive experience for our subscribers, we’ve integrated Dragon TV to deliver an incredibly human way to find and access content. It completely changes the way our subscribers engage Orange TV and marks a first in France for a truly unique digital TV experience,” said Christian Bombrun, Vice President Marketing Entertainment and Digital Services, Orange France.
