MagnaChip Expands Power Product Portfolio to Low Noise LDO Family

SEOUL, South Korea, July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd., a leading provider of analog and mixed signal semiconductor products for high volume consumer applications, today, announced the expansion of its power solutions portfolio with the release of low noise LDO (low dropout) products, the MAP1115 and the MAP1230, for use in mobile handsets and other portable devices.

The MAP1115 product is a single, linear LDO regulator designed to provide 150mA output current with low noise, high PSRR (power supply ripple rejection) and fast turn-on time. It supplies accurate output voltage (Vout) with less than 2% variation from nominal Vout. The MAP1115 affords the customer a quiet, low-power current during operation, an internal current limit designed to prevent short-circuiting, as well as an automatic thermal shutdown mode.

The MAP1230 product is a dual output, pin-programmable LDO that provides highly accurate dual output voltages with less than 2% variation from nominal Vout1 and Vout2. This device provides a maximum 300mA output current at each port with low noise. Importantly, unlike standardized LDOs with a fixed output voltage option, the MAP1230 can generate nine voltage options, covering most potential customer requirements and thereby allowing customers to reduce required inventory levels.

Both devices are enclosed in a thin DFN (dual flat no lead) package, making them suitable for use in electrical portable applications such as mobile phones, PDAs, and other portable devices.

Sang Park, Chairman and CEO of MagnaChip, commented, "We are pleased to unveil the MAP1115 and the MAP1230. We expect that these devices will allow us to continue to differentiate our products in the mobile handset market while also meeting the power, safety and voltage needs of our customers. The launch of these products further strengthens our rapidly growing portfolio of power solutions and allows us to meet more of our customers' needs."
