Adding to the company’s EcoSpeed regulator platform, the 24V/3A SC410 accepts a wide input-voltage range from 5.5V to 24V. The wide input voltage range makes it suitable for use with lithium-ion battery packs and charging adapters or regulated 12V or 18V main power supply rails. The device employs a patented adaptive on-time architecture, which uses an advanced control loop to dynamically adjust the on-time based on input and output voltages. This allegedly results in a pseudo-fixed frequency operation and predictable EMI. Pricing for the SC410 is $1.30 each/3,000. SEMTECH CORP., Camarillo, CA (805) 498-2111.
