Renesas takes latent current head-on

- www.eeweb.com

As energy efficiency becomes more and more a must in many industries, mastery of the quiescent current becomes an up-to-the-minute obligation. Renesas produced a pair of new 42 V dual synchronous controllers with a quiescent current of 6 µA and integrated MOSFET drivers that provide primary power stage solutions for Renesas R-Car H3 and R-Car M3 SoCs. According to Edward Kohler, Strategy Marketing Manager, Automotive EV, and Power Business Unit at Renesas, “we approach low quiescent current operation from two levels. We first optimize the device to operate with the minimum current. We then look at the application level and tailor the device further to enable system-level operating current savings.” In addition to offering low quiescent current, these controllers mitigate EMI, he added.
