IRVINE, Calif. -- Intersil Corporation (Nasdaq:ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog and wireless networking solutions, today announced full market release of the new ISL6411 triple low-dropout (LDO) regulator IC. The ISL6411 IC significantly reduces board space and bill of materials (BOM) by combining three LDO Regulators, a reset function and extensive circuit protection functions into a single chip.This innovative single chip power solution makes it easy for designers of Wireless Local Area Networking (WLAN) systems to power many of today's small form factor industry standard cards such as PCMCIA, mini-PCI and Cardbus-32. It is also well suited for WLAN access points used in both business and residential settings."The ISL6411 is a strategic development for Intersil because it replaces three regulators and numerous support components on our PRISM WLAN chip set reference designs," said Larry Ciaccia, vice president and general manager of Intersil's Wireless Product Group. "High integration and efficiency, ultra low noise and voltage sequencing in a single thin profile package makes the ISL6411 an ideal power solution for our PRISM chip sets. Naturally, this enables us to price our WLAN solutions more aggressively in a highly competitive market.""We are excited about this new triple LDO, which is the first application-specific power management solution for the PRISM chip sets," said Rick Furtney, vice president and general manager of Intersil's High Performance Analog Product Group. "We are confident that this solution will provide great performance and high value for Intersil's PRISM WLAN customers."Intersil Corp.
