Flex Power's Ultra-Miniature PoL Regulators Tout Cost-Efficiency
October 03, 2019
Flex Power Modules? PMU8000 series of Point-of-Load (PoL) converters offer an efficiency of typically 95.3 percent (at half load) and excellent thermal performance.
Flex Power Modules’ PMU8000 series of Point-of-Load (PoL) converters offer an efficiency of typically 95.3 percent (at half load) and excellent thermal performance, meaning they can be used in harsh conditions. The 7.5 x 7.5 x 5.4 mm regulators include a loop optimization feature to optimize load transient response for different capacitive loads, and a configurable soft-start or tracking feature to ease time sequence design.
Three variants offer different maximum output currents. The PMU8218 provides an output up to 4 A/22 W, the PMU8318 up to 6 A/33 W, and the PMU8418 up to 8 A/44 W. Each device has an output voltage range of 0.6 V to 5.5 V, and an input voltage range of 4.5 V to 17 V. The regulators have MTBF figures of up to 172 Mhrs and meet safety requirements according to IEC/EN/UL62368-1.
