Ultra-small DC-DC power modules offer wide voltage range and smallest footprint
While miniaturization remains the trend for an array of system designs, many of these designs also require a wide range of input voltages. For example, supply voltages in factory automation equipment are susceptible to large fluctuations due to long transmission lines. USB-C and broad 12V nominal applications require up to 24V of working voltage protection against transients due to hot plugging of supplies and/or batteries.
Maxim’s newest Himalaya uSLIC power modules extend the portfolio’s range up to 60V versus the previous maximum of 42V and feature a footprint of 2.6mm x 3.0mm x 1.5mm, less than half the size of the closest competitive offering. The modules feature a synchronous wide-input Himalaya buck regulator with built-in FETs, compensation and other functions with an integrated shielded inductor.
