Time: 3 PM EST (12 PM PST / 9:00 PM CET)
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


Power system architects face the increasingly daunting challenge of designing ultra-high power density, board mounted power solutions to support increasing power consumption from system processors, FPGAs and memory ICs in order to satisfy exploding user data requirements. Thankfully, help is on-hand with innovations in high efficiency, power management architectures and point-of-load (PoL) designs.

This webinar provides an overview of Murata's revolutionary new charge pump technology and how it changes the paradigm on conversion efficiency and solution size compared to existing buck converter power architectures. Attendees will learn about the technology behind the Murata Semiconductor high efficiency architecture but also briefly previews the product roadmap.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand Murata's revolutionary new charge pump technology and how it applies to semiconductors
  • See how this new technology increases efficiency in a low profile package while also reducing ripple and EMI
  • Review Murata's three product families: UltraBK, UltraCP and FlexiBK
