  MILPITAS, CA, Oct 04 (Marketwire) -- 
Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leader in the design and
manufacture of high-performance analog, mixed-signal and power management
semiconductors, today introduced a robust, compact ORing FET controller
that provides power redundancy and protection with minimal power

    The new ISL6146 works with N-channel power MOSFETs to increase power
distribution efficiency when replacing a power ORing diode in high
current applications. It can be used to provide an N+1 ORing power supply
function, along with complete fault reporting for intelligent monitoring. 

    The ISL6146 provides reverse current fault isolation with a 6A turn-off
current, delivering the industry's fastest response to preempt potential
damage to upstream components in cases of power loss. Measuring just 3mm
x 3mm, it is the industry's smallest total solution and requires a
minimum number of external components for power supply systems in
infrastructure equipment applications.

    Features and Specifications

--  Wide 3V to 20V bias and 1V to 20V operating voltage range support
    range of applications
--  ISL6146A and ISL6146B are optimized for very low voltage operation,
    down to 1V
--  Hot-swap transient rated to 24V to ensure reliability
--  Five options for various types of applications


Pricing and Availability
 The ISL6146 is available now in 8-lead
MSOP and DFN packages, with prices starting at $1.20 each in 1,000-unit
quantities. For more information please visit:
