Wolfson wins Nvidia design-in

Nvidia is specifying a power management chip from Edinburgh-based Wolfson to run along-side its Tegra 2 computer-on-a-chip for mobile devices including phones.

The power chip is the WM8325, claimed by Wolfson to the world’s highest current monolithic power management IC (PMIC).

It includes four programmable DC-DC converters, including one with a 2.5A output, and eleven LDOs, four of which are low-noise.

Tegra 2, aimed at phones and tablets, includes a dual core ARM Cortex-A9, GeForce ‘ULP’ (ultra-low power) graphics processor, and a 1080p video playback accelerator.
