Milpitas, Calif. Intersil released the ISL97701; a boost regulator which provides a design for passive matrix OLEDs. With efficiency up to 87%, the ISL97701 can deliver 50 mA of output current at 18 V. It can provide up to 28 V output, enabling power-efficient operations in MP3, portable media players, automotive clustering and low-end cell phones PMOLED displays. The ISL97701 is also suitable for standard boost-regulation applications including WiMax card and LCD bias-generator power applications.
The integration of the Schottky diode saves board space while an integrated input disconnect switch protects the device against overcurrent, overvoltage and overtemperature. The ISL97701 is versatile with a variable output which can be set by external resistors to match the needs of the application. At 3 x 3 x 0.9-mm, its 10-lead DFN (Pb-free) package is a compact power-management IC for portable applications.
Pricing: Begins at $0.80 each in 100 to 1,000-piece quantities
