manufacturing of analog and mixed signal ASICs, ams offers high quality
products to the automotive, consumer, industry and healthcaremarkets.
The AS1312 is an
ultra low IQ hysteretic step-up DC-DC converter. The AS1312 achieves an
efficiency of up to 94% and is designed to operate from a +0.7V to +5.0V
supply, the output voltage is fixed in 50mV steps from +2.5V to 5.0V. In order
to save power the AS1312 features a shutdown mode, where it draws less than
100nA. In shutdown mode the battery is not connected to the output. If the
input voltage exceeds the output voltage the device is in a feedthrough mode
and the input is directly connected to the output voltage.
Integrated Active Noise Cancelling solution with
integrated bypass function addressing feedforward architecture for Stereo wired
headsets, suitable for music, video or mobile use.
The AS8506 Cell Monitor and Cell Balancer IC enables
Autonomous cell balancing, Simultaneous cell voltage comparison and Simplified
readout of cells all in a robust, simple and small solution.
The AS8506 features simultaneous cell voltage
comparison with upper and lower threshold, active- or optionally passive cell
balancing by simultaneous comparison of actual cell voltages with a target cell
voltage. Cells which are below target will either cyclically receive charge
packages from an isolated DCDC converter or, optionally, cells above target
will cyclically be discharged by an external resistor through integrated
switches in an autonomous way. The device can flexibly be used for battery
stacks of 3 up to 7 cells. Together with autonomous monitoring and balancing
this significantly reduces data communication compared to existing solutions
and improves EMC robustness.
Global leaders trust ams for special functions in
mobile phones such as low-noise, high-voltage MEMS microphone interfaces. MEMS
microphones offer space savings, better sound quality and reliability.
ams' power management products cover a wide range of
power management applications, specifically targeting portable battery-powered
devices, including mobile phones, portable navigation devices, personal
audio/video players and personal healthcare devices to name just a few.
