SEOUL, South Korea, March 15, 2021 — Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (“Magnachip”) (NYSE: MX) announced today that the company has released a new Low-dropout (LDO) linear regulator featuring an ultra-fast transient response for a Universal Flash Storage (UFS)-based Multi-Chip Package (MCP).

UFS is an advanced version of an Embedded Multi-Media Controller (eMMC), which was developed for concurrent read and write performance at higher speeds. UFS-based MCP is a memory module that integrates UFS controller and memory ICs, such as DRAM or NAND flash. It is mainly used for the storage function in smartphones.

Magnachip’s LDO linear regulator is designed for the power supply of NAND flash in UFS-based MCP with an input voltage of up to 500mA. It reduces input noise with its power supply rejection ratio function, while providing a low-leakage current of 75uA in deep sleep mode, which will enhance battery life and power efficiency.

A key feature of this new product is ultra-fast transient response, minimizing output-voltage fluctuations. Frequent changes in voltage normally occur in UFS-based MCPs due to varying levels of read and write performance. However, ultra-fast transient response regulates these fluctuations to a steady state within 100 nanoseconds.

The line regulation and load regulation in UFS-based MCP is maintained at 0.2% and 0.5% respectively, which will guarantee stable power supply. In addition, the dropout voltage is as low as 0.3V, which makes the linear regulator perfect for low-power domain operations of batteries.

This linear regulator also ensures robust circuit protection, such as overcurrent protection, thermal shutdown and the power good signal, which indicates that all of the output voltages are within specification.

“The demand for advanced power ICs is growing as electronic devices become more sophisticated and have increasingly stringent requirements for stable and efficient power supply,” said YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip. “We will continuously expand our Power IC portfolio by delivering premium products for a wide range of data storage applications.”

Since 2010, MagnaChip has been providing the world’s highest volume of MOSFETs for smartphone battery charging protection. MagnaChip expects that the Company’s place as the global leading supplier of MOSFETs will be solidified by virtue of increased demand in the variety of electronic products including wireless earphones.

In particular, it is the industry’s expectation that the size of the wireless earphone market may jump from 120 million units in 2019 to 230 million units in 2020, with subsequent annual growth rate as high as 90 percent.

The new MOSFET is designed to prevent damage to the delicate circuitry of the wireless earphone charging case by blocking excessive voltage from flowing to the charger. It also allows for highly-stable charging environment by blocking electrostatic discharge as high as 2kV from penetrating into the earphone charger, which often occurs during recharging. In addition to implementing strategies to increase the market share of MOSFETs for wireless earphones, MagnaChip is poised to expand the application of MOSFETs into wearable products such as smartwatches and VR (Virtual Reality) headsets.

Mr. Y.J. Kim, CEO of MagnaChip, said: “The charging performance is one of the key elements of wireless earphones in determining their overall quality and competitiveness. Our new MOSFET will contribute greatly to the increase of charging stability.” Mr. Kim added: “Based on our research and development capabilities progressed over the last several years, MagnaChip sees this sector as an excellent opportunity to diversify our target markets and we will continue to offer top quality MOSFET products for diverse applications.”
