Multiphase Core Regulator for IMVP-6
The ISL6260 and ISL6260B provide microprocessor core
voltage regulation by driving up to 3 channels in parallel. The
multiphase buck converter architecture uses interleaved
channels to multiply the output voltage ripple frequency and
reduce output channel currents. The reduction in ripple results
in fewer components, lower component cost, reduced power
dissipation, and smaller implementation area. The ISL6260,
ISL6260B multiphase controller together with the ISL6208 gate
drivers form the basis for a portable power supply solution to
power Intel's next generation mobile microprocessors. The
modulator at the heart of this power system is derived from
Intersil's Robust Ripple Regulator technology, (R3) Compared
with the traditional multiphase buck regulator, the R3
technology multiphase converter has faster transient response.
This is due to the R3 modulator commanding variable switching
frequency during load transients.
Intel Mobile Voltage Positioning is a smart voltage regulation
technology, which effectively reduces power dissipation in Intel
Pentium processors. The ISL6260 and ISL6260B support the
IMVP-6 mobile processor voltage regulation specifications.
ISL6260 and ISL6260B are pin-to-pin compatible. ISL6260B
responds to PSI# signal by adding or dropping PWM2 and
adjusting overcurrent protection accordingly. To improve
audible noise, the DPRSLPVR signal can be used to reduce
slew rates entering and exiting Deeper Sleep.
The ISL6260 and ISL6260B have several other key features.
Current sensing can be done using either DCR sensing or
discrete precision resistor sensing. A single NTC thermistor
thermally compensates both the gain and time constant of
the DCR variation. A unity gain, differential amplifier is
provided for remote CPU die sensing. This allows the
voltage on the CPU die to be accurately measured and
regulated per Intel IMVP-6 specifications.
