5A/3A Power Modules Raise Power Density And Efficiency Bars

5A/3A Power Modules Raise Power Density And Efficiency Bars
Intersil Corp.

The pin-compatible 5A ISL8205M and 3A ISL8202M single-channel DC/DC step-down power modules operate at efficiencies up to 95% in 4.5 mm x 7.5 mm x 1.85 mm footprints. The devices provide point-of-load (POL) conversions for FPGAs, DSPs and MCUs in a wide range of home networking and high-end consumer products, as well as portable industrial equipment that use Li-ion batteries. The modules are complete power supplies that include a controller, MOSFETs, inductor and passive components inside an encapsulated module, simplifying system design. With a height of 1.85mm, they can be directly mounted on the backside of a PCB, freeing and both devices support input voltages from 2.6V to 5.5V with adjustable output voltages as low as 0.6V. A copper lead-frame structure allows the modules to operate at full load over a wide temperature range with no airflow or heatsinks. The ISL8205M power module is available now in a 4.5 mm x 7.5 mm, 22-lead QFN package and is priced at $3.79 each/1,000. The ISL8202M power module is available now in a 4.5 mm x 7.5 mm, 22-lead QFN package and is priced at $2.79 each/1,000.For more details, visit:
