Synchronous Buck Regulator Is Industry’s Smallest

Heralded as the smallest 6A, 24V-input integrated synchronous buck regulator on the market, the FAN2106 measures 5 mm x 6 mm and achieves up to 95% efficiency by converting 3V through 24V inputs to output voltages as low as 0.8V while delivering up to 6A of output current. The device suits POL applications that include set-top boxes, cable modems, in-cabin GPS, portable medical equipment, LED lighting, industrial instrumentation, and ultra-mobile PCs, notebooks, and blade servers. An integrated boot diode further minimizes board space. Other features include a programmable switching-frequency, under- and over-voltage, over-current, and thermal protection circuitry, and a selectable power-saving mode. Available in a lead-free MLP that meets or exceeds requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020C, price is $3.78 each/1,000. FAIRCHILD SEMICONDUCTOR, San Jose, CA. (800) 341-0392.
