Fairchild Semiconductor and Zilker Labs have entered into an agreement to manufacture and sell digital power products, including point-of-load (PoL) power devices, targeted at the server, networking, graphics and high-end desktop applications.

"We're pleased to be able to expand our industry-leading power management product offering, particularly in the digital power area. This partnership allows Fairchild to manufacture and sell digital power products and enhances our working knowledge of the digital power market and application space, while promoting and driving its adoption. Developing close relationships with our customers, and understanding their challenges, will allow us to develop and provide next generation leading edge digital power products and solutions for a variety of applications in the power management market," said Bob Conrad, executive VP of Fairchild's mobile, computing, consumer and communications product group. "Zilker Labs has developed an excellent reputation, and we're looking forward to working closely with them."

"Zilker Labs' innovative Digital-DC technology enables efficient, flexible, easy-to-use digital power solutions for today's embedded communications and computing systems," said Bob Bridge, CEO of Zilker Labs. "We're excited about the partnership with Fairchild, and we look forward to expanding both our customer base and our product offering. The partnership between Fairchild Semiconductor and Zilker Labs will allow increased product support and supply continuity for OEMs and power supply manufacturers using digital power control products."

Zilker Labs' Digital-DC ICs are highly-integrated, high-performance digital power solutions designed to be universal building blocks that can be easily combined and adapted to address a wide variety of complex power system requirements. These products implement an innovative digital power conversion architecture that dynamically optimises efficiency as system conditions change, and integrated power management logic reduces both external component and board space requirements and simplifies the design process. The Digital-DC devices incorporate integrated intelligence, allowing them to be easily configured through simple pin settings or by using Power Management Bus (PMBus) commands with no software programming required.
