|Photo Release -- Intersil Announces Highly Integrated, Efficient and Flexible Synchronous Buck Regulators|
A photo accompanying this release is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/prs/?pkgid=23816
The ISL85410/18 synchronous buck regulators are highly integrated resulting in better efficiency while reducing the number of required external components and enabling a compact footprint. The ISL85410/18 synchronous buck regulators integrate both the high-side and low-side field-effect transistors (FETs), eliminating the need for an inefficient low-side diode. By also eliminating the need for external compensation, the overall bill of materials (BOM) is reduced to only five external components. The minimal component count of the ISL85410/18 reduces the solution footprint size and overall space requirements for a power design, which is important for space constrained applications.
Intersil's ISL85415 synchronous buck regulator is also pin-to-pin compatible with the ISL85410/18, and together provide system designers with a versatile down-converting solution that can be used to support a wide input voltage range from 3V to 36V with 500mA to 1A options. Designers can easily reuse a single proven, reliable layout for different power levels allowing for enhanced flexibility, reduced design time and accelerated time to market.
"From industrial process control to medical imaging, industrial designers are being asked to reduce design time and improve efficiency while ensuring the delivery of robust and reliable solutions," said Colm Brazil, senior marketing manager for Intersil's
