Power Module Family Squires 10A Members

The SIMPLE SWITCHER family of power modules adds 12 members said to be the first to drive up to 10A of output current and comply with the CISPR 22 (Class B) radiated and conducted electromagnetic interference (EMI) standard in industrial and communications infrastructure applications. The added modules include unique features for current sharing and frequency synchronization.  For high-current intermediate rail and FPGA applications, multiple SIMPLE SWITCHER modules can be placed in parallel to achieve output currents up to 60A.  A synchronization pin enables the modules to operate at the same frequency, controlling switching noise in sensitive systems. Six of the 12 new SIMPLE SWITCHER power modules accept an input voltage rail between 6V and 36V and deliver an adjustable output voltage from 0.8V to 6V.  The LMZ13608 and LMZ13610 drive up to 8A and 10A of output current, respectively.  Featuring similar output currents, the LMZ23608 and LMZ23610 also include frequency synchronization and current sharing.  The LMZ23603 and LMZ23605 drive up to 3A and 5A of output current, respectively, and feature frequency synchronization. The second set of six new SIMPLE SWITCHER modules accept an input voltage rail between 6V and 20V and deliver an adjustable output voltage from 0.8V to 6V.  The LMZ12008 and LMZ12010 drive up to 8A and 10A of output current, respectively.  Featuring similar output currents, the LMZ22008 and LMZ22010 also include frequency synchronization and current sharing.  The LMZ22003 and LMZ22005 drive up to 3A and 5A of output current, respectively, and feature frequency synchronization. Prices range from $5.50 to $18 each/1,000. NATIONAL SEMICONDUCTOR CORP., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 272-9959.
