Murata Manufacturing unveils what it describes as the world's smallest, most efficient, fully integrated 6A buck regulator. The MYMGA1R86RELC2RA module's 12 mm x 9 mm x 2 mm footprint is said to be 25% smaller than the nearest competitive component and has a 30% lower profile.
Featuring an input voltage range of 5.5V to 14.4V and a programmable output of 0.7V to1.8V at up to 6A, the dc/dc converter is designed for 2-cell, 3-cell and 12V point-of-load applications. The module integrates all passive components including bulk output capacitance, to meet exacting transient load requirements. As such, no additional external components are required for most applications.
Peak efficiency exceeds 90% for 12V input to 1.8V output and operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +105°C with derating. Target applications include telecoms, base stations, networking switches, routers and micro-servers, SSDs, PCIE add-in cards, and mobile computing platforms. The MYMGA1R86RELC2RA will be sampling in August and mass production is scheduled for later in 2019. Sample pricing will be $10 each. Visit for Murata for more details.
