Power Chip Takes Up Little Space

Sept. 1, 2000

Touted as the company's smallest coil-less power supply chip, the SP6680 comes in a 10-pin MSOP package. The device accepts input voltages from 2.7V to 6.5V and outputs a regulated 5V at 60 mA. Its switched multi-capacitor topology allows the external components to be reduced to smaller size ceramic capacitors. An on-chip frequency synthesizer allows the oscillators to operate in one of four modes. Operating temperature range is from -40°C to 85°C. The device is priced at $1.07 each/10,000.
