Qorvo Releases New PAC5556 Power Application Controller

New SiP expands portfolio, reduces energy usage and PCB space, slashes BOM costs.

Qorvo’s new PAC5556 Power Application Controller (PAC) offers power density in a small 52-PIN 10x10 QFN package. It includes a 150MHz Arm Cortex-M4F digital signal processor with 128kB FLASH and integrates a 600V N-channel DC/DC Buck Controller and signal conditioning components.

The PAC5556 provides essential voltage rails for the system, including the 12V or 15V gate driver supply for metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) or insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs). An additional, high-efficiency 5V DC/DC Buck Converter delivers power for other system peripherals.

The PAC5556 offers the following:

“We are continually optimizing our product designs to improve performance and increase energy efficiency,” said Qorvo Programmable Power Management business unit’s GM, Larry Blackledge. “The PAC5556 expands our highly-optimized family of PAC devices that can implement BLDC and PMSM programmable motor controllers and drivers in a single, integrated package. This is a game changer for controlling and powering next-generation smart energy AC-powered appliances, devices and equipment.”

Qorvo will also be appearing at the Motor Drive and Control Technology Seminar in Shenzhen, China on August 2, 2019, to showcase its programmable power management solutions.
