The Intel Core i7 power management design is a complete solution for Intel IMVP-7 SVID.  A GUI communication program is available along with several test points on the board to evaluate the static and dynamic performance of the CPU's DC/DC Controller.  The design features an IMVP-7 3-Phase CPU supply,  a 2 Phase GPU Vcore supply, a 1.05VCCIO supply, and a DDR3L/DDR4 memory rail.  To greatly improve power density and thermal performance, TI's 5-mm x 6mm NEXFET Power Block MOSFETs are used.


• Design supports a 9-20V input from Vbatt
• Small high-density power solution for Ivy Bridge
• 3 Phase CPU supply supports up to 94A
• 90% peak (80% full-load) efficiency from 12Vin to 1.05Vout - CPU Supply
• Low CPU supply ripple: 25mV
• Design has been built and tested.  Board available.
