- Introduces new power management solutions for 6A to 30A rails in server, data center, networking, and wireless communications applications
MaxLinear Inc. (NASDAQ: MXL) announced a new line of Intelligent POLs (iPOLs) supporting server, data center, networking, and wireless communications applications. The MxL76xxP series are step-down, synchronous regulators available in four versions based on current rating (6A, 12A, 20A, 30A). Combined with a PMBus® digital interface, the devices allow for precision control and monitoring.

Modern data centers require complete control and monitoring of all voltage rails, and the MxL76xxP family meets these needs in a single chip solution. Integrating the output power FETs, control loop and digital telemetry into a single small package allows for board space savings and improved performance. The PMBus interface supports monitoring of input and output voltage and current while enabling control of all setpoints. Performance and system thermals are optimized by adjusting the output on the fly as required with modern CPUs/ASICs using Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS).
"Power semiconductors in data centers are forecast to be a $2.1 billion market by 2025 with a CAGR of 6.6% from 2020 – 2025. Edge-located servers are the fastest growing market segment within data centers and are forecast to grow five-fold from 2022 to 2025. This explosive growth will require innovative solutions to meet increasingly stringent power efficiency requirements," said Paul Pickering, Power Semiconductor Analyst at Omdia.
The MxL76xxP family, with its small package size and digital telemetry, offers best-in-class performance and power density, reducing system cost and board real estate. The parts are designed to operate from 3V to 16V inputs, supporting both data center distribution rails and PCIe cards. Integrated synchronous FETs rated for 6A, 12A, 20A, or 30A allow the right device to be selected for any given application, optimizing the efficiency and cost of the solution. Using the MaxLinear PowerArchitect GUI, the entire setup, control and monitoring of a design can be completed without external design components, reducing development time and complexity.
"MaxLinear is committed to delivering innovative power management solutions," said Chance Dunlap, Sr Director, Power Management. "The MxL76xxP family integrates our fast transient response technology with a digital interface and control that provides an industry-leading iPOL with the highest power density."
MaxLinear will showcase the MxL76xxP family at the APEC Conference in Houston, Texas, on March 21 through 24, Booth #1606.
The four versions are the MxL7630P, MxL7620P, MxL7612P, MxL7606P, which correspond to an output current rating of 30A, 20A, 12A, and 6A. They are available in 4x5.5mm, 4x4.5mm, 4x4mm, or 4x3.5mm QFN packages. To learn more and to order samples, visit www.maxlinear.com/MxL7630P.
