uSLIC power module offers higher voltages for industrial applications
Mouser now offers Maxim Integrated's MAXM17552 compact step-down DC-DC power module. Providing an ultra-small power source to drive high-voltage consumer and industrial applications, the micro system-level IC (uSLIC) module produces a broad input voltage range for medical, factory automation, and communications devices.
The module is part of the company's Himalaya series of voltage regulator ICs and power modules, which allow cooler, smaller, and simpler power supply solutions. The module works over a wide input-voltage range of 4V to 60V and delivers up to 100mA output current over an adjustable output voltage from 0.9V to 5.5V. The module combines a synchronous wide-input Himalaya buck regulator with built-in FETs, compensation and other functions with a combined shielded inductor in a minuscule 2.6mm x 3.m x 1.5mm package. The module uses peak-current-mode control architecture, operates in PWM mode, and provides a soft-start feature to decrease input inrush current.
Compliant to CISPR 22 (EN 5022) Class B and JEDEC certified, the power module produces increased energy efficiency, high-temperature operation, shock and vibration tolerance, and EMI compliance. The devices possess an ambient operating temperature range of -40C to 125C and are defended by hiccup overcurrent protection and overtemperature protection. Perfect for space-constrained applications in small enclosures, the modules give a power solution to support motor encoders, industrial sensors, building control, 4mA to 20mA current-loop powered sensors, and LDO regulator replacement.
