About BCD Power IC
BCD technology is a combination of bipolar components and CMOS and DMOS power transistors and is used for smart power management. It combines analog, logic, and power output stages onto a single chip.
Bipolar chips ensure accurate analog functions, CMOS takes care of digital framework, and DMOS looks after power and high-voltage management. BCD power ICs also improve a device's performance while reducing the cost and complexities involved in the technology.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global BCD Power IC market to grow at a CAGR of 6.99% during the period 2017-2021.
