PoL Converter Breaks Size Barrier

Touted as the industry’s most compact and highest power density point-of-load solutions, TDK Corporation’s µPOL FS series point-of-load (PoL) dc/dc converters measure 3.3 mm x 3.3 mm x 1.5 mm. Rather than using a side by side discrete IC and discrete inductor, the component integrates the IC and inductor in a compact configuration, thereby minimizing the required external components. It can deliver 1W/mm3 while offering 50% less solution size than similar components available in its class.

 

Junction temperature range is from -40 °C to 125 °C. Mass production of FS1406 is expected to begin in Q3 2019. For more details, checkout the product page.
