Renesas Electronics’ High-Efficiency Power Management IC Adopted in Google Coral AI Products

vTOKYO, Japan ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced its ISL91301B Power Management IC (PMIC) is designed into the latest Google Coral products. They include the Mini PCIe Accelerator, M.2 Accelerator A+E Key, M.2 Accelerator B+M Key, and System-on-Module (SoM). Google Coral integrates seamlessly into processes at any scale, helping designers create a variety of local artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for several industries.

Google Coral technology enables advanced neural network processing for low-power devices. At the heart of Coral is the Google Edge Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) coprocessor, which is capable of performing four trillion operations per second (TOPS), using 0.5 watts for each TOPS (2 TOPS per watt). For example, it can execute advanced mobile vision models, such as MobileNet v2 at 400 FPS, in a power efficient manner.

The Renesas ISL91301B PMIC offers a high efficiency and small footprint power solution that is ideal for cutting-edge, low power edge AI processors. The ISL91301B has quad buck regulator outputs, each delivering up to 4A (total 16A) with 94 percent peak efficiency. The PMIC leverages Renesas’ R5 Modulation Technology for quick single-cycle transient response, tuned compensation, and fast switching frequency. These features and a 70mm2 solution size make it easier for power supply designers to design a small AI solution with 2mm x 2mm x 1mm low profile inductors, small capacitors, and a few passive components. The ISL91301B’s low quiescent current, superior light load efficiency, high DC accuracy and fast dynamics is well suited for low-power or battery-powered AI products.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Google on their innovative, next generation products,” said Andrew Cowell, Vice President, Mobility Infrastructure & IoT Power Business Division at Renesas. “Our multiphase PMIC employs Renesas’ industry-leading R5 modulation technology for blazingly fast transient response, which allows Google’s designers to dynamically scale power to improve overall system performance.”

Kai Yick, Google Hardware Manager said, “Renesas’ Multiphase PMICs provide our engineering team with the high performance and design flexibility required to build Coral. Our collaboration with Renesas ensures our Edge TPU achieve the highest power efficiency to perform calculations offline and locally.”

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …
