Six-Channel Precision Voltage Marginer

Summit Microelectronics’ new six-channel SMM605 joins the SMM105 and SMM205 single- and dual-channel devices families of precision margining active voltage controllers.

Applications for the device are a wide variety of electronic systems, including computing, server, networking, communications and other equipment where highly-reliable operation is required.

Summit uses proprietary active control (ADOC—Active DC-DC Output Control) to provide the accuracy required to correctly margin, typically ±0.1% (guaranteed ±0.2% worst case). Inaccurate margining causes an uncertainty in the actual voltage being applied to processors, ASICs, FPGAs and other PCB circuitry.
