  • Announces Fast-Response DC/DC Converter IC for Consumer Electronics Shanghai, CN-EN, November 17, 2009 - Shanghai, November 17, 2009 ― Fujitsu Microelectronics (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. today announced a new two-channel DC/DC converter IC with fast transient response, for use in digital consumer products, such as LCD TVs and digital video recorders. This new DC/DC converter IC, the MB39A145, utilizes a “bottom detection comparator method”, and includes new enhanced circuits which provide changes in voltage, for changes in current to realize a more stable and low ripple output voltage. This improved stability subsequently reduces the number of external components that are needed, such as condensers, thus reducing space. The IC also includes Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) that is highly efficient in low-current ranges, and allows the equipment to have low power consumption in stand-by mode.


  • Fujitsu Launches Multimode, Multiband RF Transceiver IC Shanghai, CN-EN, September 16, 2009 - Fujitsu Microelectronics (Shanghai) Co.,Ltd. today announced the first product in its entry into the mobile phone RF transceiver market, in launching a RF transceiver IC for mobile phones supporting 2G GSM/GPS/EDGE and 3G UMTS/HSPA protocols, that includes a 3G DigRF interface on a single chip.
