Intersil module solves difficult power supply challenges

Milpitas, Calif.—Intersil Corp. announced the ISL8200M, a compact, scalable power module that satisfies a wide range of point-of-load (POL) power requirements.

The ISL8200M is a 10A, highly integrated POL regulator in a surface mount QFN package that includes a PWM controller, power MOSFETs, power inductor and associated discrete components. Applications include computing, telecommunications and networking infrastructure, and industrial markets.

Constructing a high-performance POL regulator with the ISL8200M is fast and simple, according to Intersil. Designers only need input and output capacitors, a few support components, and a single resistor to program the output voltage. And with fewer components, reliability in the field is improved as well.

The ISL8200M minimizes the risk of product delays—users simply drop it on the board, and it works. It also features a smaller footprint with its compact 15mm x 15mm package that consumes very little PCB area. And with its thin 2.2mm profile, the ISL8200M can be mounted on the back side of the PCB where space is typically free.

The ISL8200M enables a single solution covering <10 amps to 60 amps. This simplifies inventory by allowing a single part to satisfy a wide range of POL regulator applications.

The ISL8200M accepts input voltages from 3V to 20V, and supports output voltages from 0.6V to 6V. A patented current-sharing architecture allows up to six modules to be paralleled for a total output current of 60A. Remote voltage sensing also assures precise regulation even in low voltage, high current applications.

Pricing: Starts at $15.86 each in 1,000-piece quantities.
Availability: Now in a 23-lead QFN package.
