Enpirion Announces EN2300 Family of 12 V Integrated Power IC Solutions
Delivering the Industry’s Highest Power Density

May 21, 2012 Press Release

-- Built with world’s fastest 12V power MOSFET technology outperforming GaN at silicon cost levels.
HAMPTON, NJ — May 21, 2012 — Enpirion announced the availability of the EN2300 family of fully integrated 12 Volt DC-DC converters, implemented in the company’s industry leading power MOSFET technology with double the power density over alternative solutions. As the leader of integrated power IC solutions, this introduction underscores Enpirion’s continued focus on miniaturizing DC-DC power systems in applications such as telecommunication, enterprise, industrial, embedded computing, and storage systems. The addition of the EN2340QI 4 Amp, EN2360QI 6 Amp, EN2390QI 9 Amp, and EN23F0QI 15 Amp devices further broadens Enpirion’s extensive PowerSoC (power-system-on-chip) portfolio. These devices capitalize on Enpirion’s field proven PowerSoC technology, which integrates the controller, power MOSFETs, high frequency input capacitors, compensation network and inductor. The EN2300 family offers small solution sizes with uncompromised performance, highest reliability, and a 45 percent reduction in time to market. Customers have already validated these benefits with more than 50 design wins ahead of the official market release.
Enpirion Announces EN2300 Family of 12 V Integrated Power IC Solutions Delivering the Industry’s Highest Power Enpirion’s proprietary high-speed transistor structure implemented in 0.18u LDMOS process achieves the industry’s best Figure of Merit (FOM = Gate Charge x On-state Resistance in units of milliohm nanocoulombs) to operate at high frequency while reducing switching losses. “Enpirion focuses on driving high speed, low-loss power MOSFET technology as the key enabler for delivering the highest efficiency solutions with leading power density,” says Dr. Ashraf Lotfi, Enpirion Chief Technology Officer. “Our technology FOM of 20 provides a 40% improvement over alternative LDMOS, 73% versus VDMOS, and 33% better than high performance GaN.”   
The EN2300 devices offer compact solution footprints from 4 Amp at 190mm2 to 15 Amp at 308mm2 which represents up to a sixty percent area reduction versus competing alternatives at comparable performance. The devices support an input voltage range of 4.5 to 14V and an output voltage range of 0.6 to 5V. 
“The broad market push towards reducing power, space, and cost while improving reliability is driving the accelerated migration from traditional DC-DC converters to integrated power-systems-in-a-package at a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.4% from 2011 to 2016,” said Jeff Shepard, President of Darnell Group. “Enpirion’s new EN2300 family is a strong addition to the company’s already successful DC-DC PowerSoC portfolio and exemplifies the types of products we consider key in enabling this rapid growth.”
The following is a summary of specific challenges in many telecommunication, enterprise, industrial embedded, and storage applications that the EN2300 DC-DC converters and the broader Enpirion PowerSoC portfolio address:
Increasing features/function and memory capacity → Highest Power Density
The market pressure to add more value and functionality to end products compresses available PCB space. The EN2300 family along with the rest of Enpirion’s PowerSoC portfolio provides the industry’s highest density power IC solutions – greatly minimizing the amount of space needed for power management compared to alternative discrete and modules solutions.
Reduced Energy Consumption → High Efficiency
All EN2300 devices achieves up to 95 percent efficiency with a flattened efficiency profile from 10% to 100% load permitting designers to manage power effectively over the entire operating range.
Higher-Quality End Products: fewer parts → 8x Higher Reliability
Enpirion integrated power IC solutions achieve 35,700 years mean time between failures (MTBF). PowerSoCs are specified, simulated, characterized, validated and manufacturing-tested as a complete power system – which, when coupled with tightly controlled IC manufacturing processes and fewer total components, yields unsurpassed reliability.
Competitive Products, Simplified Supply Chain → Total Solution Cost Reduction
Enpirion PowerSoCs require fewer external components. EN2300’s inherently low ripple (e.g. <10 mV) and EMI (i.e. CISPR 22 Class B compliant) eliminate the need for external noise filters, while its thermal performance eliminate the need for heat sinks or airflow.
Time to Market, More Projects Commercialized → Simplified Design Flow
The EN2300 family, like all Enpirion PowerSoCs, requires 45% fewer man-hours and 1/3 less exposure to design cycle iteration versus discrete switching regulators. Fully validated and proven PCB layout and design files enable customers nearly 100 percent first-pass reported success.
Price and Availability
Enpirion’s EN2300 devices are available now. They are available direct from Enpirion ( www.enpirion.com) or through distribution with EN2340QIat $3.56, EN2360QI at $4.41, EN2390QI at $6.60, EN23F0QI at $9.00 at volumes of 1k units.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
