Saves PCB Space, Silicon Mitus Launches Single-chip Charger

Silicon Mitus, Inc., a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) and audio semiconductor solution technology specialist, announces the launch of the SM58IP04 single-chip buck-boost USB Type-C narrow-range VDC (NVDC) charger product aimed at taking full advantage of the new USB Type -C function of the latest PD3.0 standard 2S / 3S and 4S battery applications, such as PPS and Fast Role Swap.

SM58IP04 integrates FET and has a high level of on-chip logic. It is designed for high efficiency and high integration. It can provide up to 65W power in the following minimum form factors:


1. Reduce the PCB surface area by more than 50%, and reduce the Z height dimension to less than 1.2 mm;


2. Adopt advanced thermal management function, can achieve up to 95% efficiency in buck or boost mode, charging current up to 6 A


3. Supports direct and parallel charging, Intel IMVP8 and Cell Balancing specifications, and integrates multiple current and voltage sensing and OVP functions


Gianfranco Scherini, Silicon Mitus's vice president of business development at Cupertino, California, said: "We are very satisfied with the SM58IP04's popularity in computing and mobile power applications. These industries have proven that this product provides superior performance and cost savings The aspect is very effective. By leveraging the company's typical experience in the mobile industry integrating complex analog and digital functions in a single IC, we provide the first product that combines multi-cell battery charger functionality and fully supports USB Type-C and PD specifications.
