Renesas Electronics Showcases Intelligent Power Solutions at APEC 2018

Visit Booth #1436 to Explore Renesas’ Suite of High-End Analog and Power Solutions for Industrial Applications, IoT Cloud Infrastructure, and More

01 Mar 2018

MILPITAS, Calif., March 1, 2018— Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced it will showcase its power electronics expertise at the 2018 IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC), March 4-8, taking place at Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. At booth #1436, Renesas will demonstrate several high-performance intelligent power solutions, including USB power delivery (PD), brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive, and digital multiphase power control for applications ranging from battery-powered consumer electronics to power tool equipment, and the Internet of Things (IoT) cloud Infrastructure.

Intelligent power design combines the high performance, power optimization, and energy efficiency required by today’s battery-powered, and increasingly connected devices. By combining its low-power microcontroller (MCU) expertise with analog and power expertise, Renesas enables engineers to design their applications quickly and efficiently.

 

Technology Demonstrations

USB Power Delivery (PD) Solution

The Renesas USB-PD solution highlights seamless, efficient USB PD 3.0 and USB Type-C™ power delivery for a wide range of applications, including ultrabooks, AC/DC power adapters, hubs, and power banks. Renesas will demonstrate a combo USB PD 3.0 controller and USB Type-C™ bidirectional buck-boost voltage regulator solution that offers built-in authentication, configurable firmware, 5V to 20V output, and supports source, sink, and cable.

 

Integrated Motor Drive Solutions

Renesas’ integrated motor drive solutions demonstrate how to easily control and drive 3-phase BLDC motors used in battery-operated power tools and cleaning robots, among other applications, using high-performance sensor-less motor drive control. The solutions feature a single RAJ30600 system in a package that combines an RL78 MCU, analog front end, and customized firmware to drive a motor with optimized efficiency and minimum heating.

 

Smart Power Design with Complete Digital Multiphase Solutions

Renesas will also showcase intelligent power control with its digital multiphase controllers and smart power stage solutions, designed to provide ultra-fast transient response and support the industry’s ever-growing current load requirements to power IoT infrastructure systems. The VR13 system board demonstrates a digitally configurable solution to address demanding CPU core voltages, memory, and auxiliary power rails in cloud server computing applications. The IMVP8 evaluation platform demonstrates a scalable digital platform for desktop and embedded applications. The AVSBus™ evaluation platform supports PMBus™ and AVSBus to connect directly to the processor for communicating telemetry data and deliver efficiency savings through adaptive voltage positioning.
