element14 Signs New Global Franchise Deal with Torex

element14 has signed a new global franchise deal with Torex Semiconductor Ltd to expand its portfolio of high-performance analog power management IC (PMIC) solutions.

element14 element14 is now stocking Torex’s full range of high-performance analog power management PMIC solutions which offer ultra-low power consumption and high reliability.

Lee Turner, Global Head of Semiconductors and Single Board Computing at element14 said: “Design engineers want high-performance solutions in compact packages that are easy to implement, and Torex Semiconductor leads the way with its range of ultra-low-power semiconductors designed for demanding power management applications. We have invested significantly in our semiconductor range to ensure we can meet our customers’ diverse needs. Torex is a fantastic addition to our line card and it’s now easier than ever for our customers to access best-in-class analog power management IC solutions for their designs and serial production.

Gareth Henson, Managing Director of Torex Semiconductor Ltd said: We have a longstanding and very successful partnership with Avnet and this new relationship with element14 will help us expand our reach into new markets, equipping more engineers with the critical products and components they need for their designs. We endeavor to continuously improve our market-leading products and services while responding to market demands to ensure our customers are well-equipped and supported to drive innovation.”

These innovative devices have a proven track record in applications such as industrial, medical, entertainment and automotive products.

Key Torex products now in stock at element14 include:

  • XC9276 Series of 150mA step-down synchronous rectification DC/DC converters have an output voltage switchover function with an ultra-low power consumption circuit and PFM control. The XC9276 can help reduce power consumption for a complete system, extend product battery life, and have a space-saving and low-profile PCB mounting area.
  • XC9281/82 Series are the world’s smallest 600mA step-down DC/DC Converters which can operate from 2.5V~5.5V, supply loads up to 600mA and has an extremely fast load transient response performance. Two versions are now available with switching frequencies of 4.0MHz or 6.0MHz.
  • XCL230/31 Series 3.0 to 36V input, 600mA compact step-down Micro DC/DC converters are a synchronous rectifier design and feature a built-in inductor simplifying PCB layout, reducing the risk of malfunction and EMI noise. The XCL231 Series automatically switches between PWM and PFM control to reduce losses by lowering the operating frequency during low loads to achieve high efficiency across the entire load range.
  • XC6193/94 Push Button Load Switch with Storage Mode is intelligent load switches that can significantly reduce power consumption while devices are in standby status after shipment, in storage or when their power supplies are off and can enable power supplies to be shut down in the event of system freezes.
