New investor Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of mixed signal semiconductors, has made a strategic investment in the company, joining the round participation of the existing investor group - Intel Capital, SEP, VentureTech Alliance and Braemar Energy Ventures. The funding will enable Powervation to accelerate business growth, expand sales channels and strengthen applications engineering including establishing a new facility in Taiwan to support its Asian business growth.

Enterprise Ireland joined the funding round with an R&D investment which will enable Powervation to further strengthen its design team in Cork to accelerate new product development.

Powervation’s digital power controllers have established a strong beachhead in the communications and server/computing infrastructure market through their advanced digital control, telemetry and power management capabilities. Its Intelligent Digital Power platform incorporates its patented Auto-Control® technology, which is the industry’s only real-time adaptive compensation scheme, delivering optimum performance under all load conditions and over the full product lifecycle. This brings key benefits in terms of system performance and efficiency coupled with breakthrough programmability, flexibility and time-to-market as supported by Powervation’s intuitive GUI-based design tool PowerSMART.

“We are delighted by the strong backing of our investor group and to have Semtech Corporation on-board as a strategic investor, as they are a market leader in silicon solutions for the high performance communications and computing markets. These investments endorse our progress with key customers and our business potential as we deliver the unique benefits of our Intelligent Digital Power platform to the wider market” said Mike McAuliffe, CEO of Powervation.

“We have strong momentum in the communication and module spaces and are excited by the early adoption of our new PV3201 Intel© VR12.x DDR controller series by leading Server/Computing OEMs. This funding round will help fuel that market momentum and enable us to accelerate our commercial build-out as a company”.

“Powervation’s singular focus on realizing the opportunity of digital power management is one that we are glad to further invest in. Their digital controllers also support the Intel© VR12.x specification which requires a highly flexible architecture aimed at delivering system performance and efficiency gains” said Damien Callaghan, Investment Director, Intel Capital.
