AKUSTICA EXPANDS SALES FOOTPRINT INTO KOREA
Apache Korea and Uniquest to distribute CMOS MEMS microphones
Pittsburgh, Pa.— November 17, 2008 – Akustica, Inc., the pioneer in acoustic system-on-chip solutions, has appointed Apache Korea and Uniquest to provide sales, marketing, and technical support for Akustica’s microphones in Korea. These new distributors join Akustica’s lineup of sales teams already working in North America, Japan and China.
“This year, Akustica entered the mobile phone market by introducing the AKU1126,” stated Mike Elchik, vice president of sales at Akustica. “Akustica is pleased to be working with Apache and Uniquest to provide the best local support to our customers for this and the rest of our microphone portfolio in this key geographic region.”
Akustica recently announced two new microphones based on its proprietary CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology: the analog AKU1126 targeted at mobile phones and headsets and the digital AKU2002C for laptops and other applications. The AKU1126 2mm x 2mm analog microphone enables handset and headset manufacturers to provide enhanced ambient noise suppression by integrating multiple microphones into the same footprint that a single microphone uses today. The AKU2002C digital microphone provides a high degree of immunity from RF (Radio Frequency) and EM (Electromagnetic) interference on the audio path for applications in which the microphone is co-located with power supplies and/or multiple radios. Both of these microphones leverage Akustica’s unique ability to integrate the transducer and accompanying electronics into a tiny 1mm x 1mm microphone die.

IR’s New SmartRectifier™ IC Slashes Part Count by 75 Percent, Reduces MOSFET Temperature by 10 Degrees with 1% Increase in System Efficiency
April 17, 2006, Seoul -- International Rectifier, IR? (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced the IR1167 SmartRectifier™ IC for AC-DC power converters for laptops, mini-PCs, LCD and PDP televisions, game systems and other digital computing and home entertainment systems. The SmartRectifier IC simplifies and improves efficiency in secondary synchronous rectification (SR) in high power flyback and resonant half-bridge converter circuits, enabling smaller, cooler designs. “In 100W to 300W flyback circuits, traditional complex and bulky current transformer control circuits waste energy because large reversing currents are required to sense polarity shifts through the SR MOSFETs. In contrast, IR’s new SmartRectifier IC employs a new technique for precise, direct sensing of voltage thresholds across the SR MOSFETs, allowing fast, accurate control to minimize power losses,” said Stephen Oliver, marketing manager at International Rectifier. The IR1167 can increase overall system efficiency by 1 percent and reduce MOSFET temperature by 10 degrees, while slashing SR parts count by 75 percent,” Oliver added. The IR1167 SmartRectifier IC uses IR’s proprietary HVIC technology, making it compatible with all MOSFET gate types and offers direct connection to IR’s wide range of 30V to 200V SR MOSFETs. The benefits of the IR1167 SmartRectifier IC are further enhanced when used with IR’s MOSFETs featuring optimized on-resistance and gate charge characteristics, such as the IRF7853, IRFB4110 and IRFB4227. These optimized MOSFETs work with the IR1167 as a “total chip set solution” to further maximize efficiency and power density in SR circuits. Since the new IC works independently from the primary control, it can be used in a variety of transformer switching modes and applications with capacitive output filters. Independence from the primary side means that the IR1167 operates in low power “burst modes” to enable “1W Standby,” and California Energy Commission (CEC) 80Plus™ compliance. “Previously, synchronous rectification in resonant half-bridge topologies has not been commercially viable due to the complexity of varying system frequency and low standby power regulations. Here, the IR1167 enables simple SR for a major boost in system efficiency,” Oliver added. The SmartRectifier technique halves the losses dissipated in the SR MOSFET. This reduces the number of MOSFETs needed or allows a change from large TO-220 packages to small, surface mount SO-8 parts. The IC is available in either SO-8 or DIP-8 packages which are lead-free (PbF) and compliant with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). Part Number Package VCC(V) VFET(V) Sw.

Designers enter application conditions and performance requirements to obtain recommended IC and MOSFET chip sets which can be sorted by performance and system cost. Daughter cards are available which offer a fast and simple way to compare efficiency and simplicity of IR’s SmartRectifier solution versus diode designs and complex SR solutions.
