Maxim Integrated Products announced that its newest Power SoC chipset in the Galaxy S III operates with the Exynos 4412 quad-core applications processor to provide a smaller, much thinner, and significantly more efficient smartphone.
Maxim’s newest Power SoC chipset covers all power management, charging and USB multiplexing needs. It provides an optimized balance between size and flexibility to power the Samsung applications processor and baseband processor. It maximizes battery usage and enhances USB connectivity.
Managing the power for upwards of 60 channels, the chipset offers up to 20% more conversion efficiency compared to the previous generation. Maxim’s unique Green Mode regulators and subregulation architecture, along with the company’s proprietary low-power, submicron geometry process, extend standby and active battery life. The chipset also enables fastest battery charging with minimal heat generation. High integration and advanced design techniques reduce the size, thickness and number of external components so smartphones become even thinner.
