Milpitas, Calif., USA: The ISL8201M, a power-conversion module that helps to save space, reduce cost, and simplify design, is the latest development from Intersil. The high-efficiency, low-noise, dc-dc power solution comes in a thermally enhanced QFN package. Included in the package is a high-performance pulse-width-modulation (PWM) controller capable of switching at 600kHz, power MOSFETs, an inductor, and all required passive components.
Only minimal external components are needed to implement a complete power solution. The module’s small form factor saves considerable board space while the high integration reduces procurement and placement costs in various applications, such as telecommunication, data communication, electronic data processing, wireless network systems, medical and instrumentation, and point-of-load applications based on a distributedbus architecture.
