Renesas offers a complete portfolio of high-performance power solutions for industrial applications. These applications include but are not limited to factory automation, industrial communication, lighting and control, home/building automation, smart meters, smart appliances, telecom, and cloud. Due to the increased utilization of connectivity, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the overall emphasis on sustainability, Renesas power products offer many features that are ideally suited to these applications in mind. These features include a wide input voltage range from less than 1V DC to 480VAC, wide frequency operation, low EMI, low quiescent current, low switching and conduction loss, all in small but often in thermally enhanced packages.

Renesas power products are ideally suited to deliver power for microprocessors, controllers, DSPs, and FPGAs, along with many auxiliary power rails for timing, memory, motor drive, connectivity modules, audio, and much more. The products include ACDC products that can provide isolation while dropping the voltage to a lower voltage such as 48V, 24V, or 12V depending on the industrial application. After this voltage is generated then a complete portfolio of DCDC (buck, boost, and buck-boost) monolithic regulators, controllers, FET drivers, and fully integrated power modules with input voltage ranging from less than 2V to above 120V to deliver power from <1W to nearly 1kW.

In order to make choosing Renesas power products easy, there are multiple hardware designs to evaluate the product in a working industrial solution. There are evaluation board kits (EVB kits) that are typically available for every product. In addition, Renesas offers many full-power solution hardware designs referred to as Winning Combinations. These can be found under specific industrial applications, and a sample of these are listed below. Whether the need is for standard linear regulators, highly flexible DC/DC converters, or fully integrated power modules, Renesas products are tailored to meet a wide range of industrial applications.

High Voltage Buck Boost Controller

ISL81601 is a true bidirectional 4-switch synchronous buck-boost controller for efficient DC-DC power conversion with peak and average current sensing and monitoring at both ends. It provides cycle-by-cycle current limit in both directions while in buck or boost mode, and generates point-of-load (POL) and voltage rail conversions with peak efficiency up to 99%. The controller uses a proprietary buck-boost algorithm that allows inherent peak current sensing for a robust design and produces the smoothest mode transitions between buck, boost and buck-boost. Its proprietary algorithm reduces low frequency ripple at Vout, ensuring minimal disturbances during line or load transients. The algorithm also ensures predictable ripple voltage under all conditions. The ISL81601 features multilayer overcurrent protection (OCP) that helps designers to design a charging/discharging circuit that ensures constant current operation for safe and reliable battery power applications. It is available in 32LD 5mmx5mm QFN and 38LD HTSSOP packages and provides full protection features such OVP, UVP, OTP and OCP. ISL81601 is a 4.5Vin~ 60Vin device and the ISL81401 is a 4.5Vin~40Vin device. The ISL81401A is a low cost unidirectional version of the ISL81401.
