Semtech Ships Notebook Power Supply Controller

Newbury Park-based Semtech announced a new power supply controller for notebook, tablet PCs, and embedded applications. The company's SC1486A is a dual synchronous DDR and DDR2 power supply controller, and is specifically designed for applications that use DDR2 memory. The new device is pin-compatible with the company's previous devices, but supports the additional voltages necessary for supporting the newer DDR2 memory standard.
