Scotland, 1st February – Wolfson Microelectronics’ WM8325 power management IC has been selected by NVIDIA for its Tegra 2 mobile super chip. Tegra 2 will bring extreme multi-tasking to cell phones with a dual-core CPU, hardware accelerated Flash, and console-quality gaming through its a GeForce™ GPU.

The WM8325 delivers a cost effective, flexible power management solution for portable multimedia applications including smartbooks, tablet computers, e-books, media players and smartphones. It features four programmable DC-DC converters, including one which is capable of delivering up to 2.5A; and eleven LDO regulators, four of which are low-noise for supplying sensitive analogue subsystems. Its optimised QFN package is designed to improve thermal performance and reduce parasitic components, enabling low cost four-layer printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing.

Dr Jess Brown, Wolfson’s Product Line Manager for Power Management, said “We are delighted that NVIDIA has selected the WM8325 for its highly innovative Tegra 2 processor. This announcement is testament to the strength of the WM8325, which delivers class-leading power management technology to next generation multimedia processors.”
