The first family is in a 22V process suitable for 12V and lower power and consists of nine members with selections, four, eight and twelve power blocks of 1A, 3A and 6A current capacity each. The AmP8D1, AmP8D3 and AmP8D6 are available with the rest of the family expected before the end of 2016.

The product family is offered in QFN packages with 6 x 6, 7 x 7, 8 x 8 footprint sizes. Initial device AmP8DS6QF74 is available today, in a 74-pin, 8-mm-by-8-mm-by-0.85-mm thermally enhanced QFN package. The lowest cost member of the family AmP8DP1QN52 is priced at US $3.75 in 1,000-unit quantities. WebAmP tools and power components can be licensed today online and are available for a 30-day free trial period and $99 per month thereafter.
The AnDapt approach is applicable to analog, mixed-signal, RF and power circuitry, Shankar told eeNews Europe, but said that initially the company would focus on power management platform ICs to displace catalog power devices.
"We have sampled seven customers in the data center and networking equipment area and are focused initially on non-isolated dc-to-dc conversion," said Shankar. "However, we can do isolated conversion beyond 12V. At 60V for example we foresee demand in automotive and industrial." It seems clear that this would also apply to drones and IoT.
