High current switchers increase power density in embedded systems

Phoenix—ON Semiconductor has introduced the NCP3101 and NCP3102 switching regulators that are designed to simplify embedded designs in high -density applications.

According to On Semiconductor, the NCP3102 and NCP3101 enable customers to replace dc-dc modules with embedded designs to reduce system cost while increasing power density.

NCP3102 is a 10 A synchronous switching regulator that enables high efficiency power conversion from a +5 volt (V) or +12 V supply. The internal 8 milliohm high-side FET (HS-FET) and 8 milliohm low-side
FET (LS-FET) enable efficiencies greater than 92 percent for typical
buck applications. The NCP3102 also features an internal voltage
reference of 0.8 V for sub 1 V operation which is now being required.

NCP3101 is a 6 A synchronous switching regulator that is pin-for-pin compatible with the NCP3102. This pin compatibility allows design engineers to scale their power solutions without having to redesign their printed circuit board (PCB). In many designs that use an FPGA for example, the final power requirements are not known until late in the design cycle. By offering true design flexibility, the NCP3101 allows the design engineer to scale up or scale down the power requirement based on the system need.

The NCP3102 and NCP3101 are available in commercial temperature
grade as well as industrial temp grade as the NCP3102B and NCP3101B.

The NCP3102 and NCP3101 are offered in a 6 mm x 6 mm QFN package.

Pricing: The NCP3102 and NCP3101 are $1.90 and $1.75, respectively, per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.
Availability: Now.
Datasheets: NCP3101 and NCP3102.
