6A Buck Regulator Squeezes Into Tight Quarters

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.
