Wolfson Microelectronics to supply power management system for upcoming Nvidia Tegra 2 chips
The Tegra 2 processor is designed to be power efficient, but with the help of Wolfson Microelectronics, the chipset system can be made even more power efficient. Nvidia has chosen the UK-based firm for their highly optimized integrated circuit (IC) design of power management, voltage regulations and thermal performance. This design system, called the WM8325, will improve battery life by “up to 10% against our leading competitors”, claims a Wolfson Microelectronics spokesperson. In addition, the flexibility of the design will allow for lower component costs and high reusability in multiple mobile applications.
Nvidia’s Tegra 2 is expected to be the processor for many upcoming tablets this year, most notably the Motorola Xoom and Viewsonic G Tablet.
