IRVINE, Calif. -- Fabless power semiconductor company Helix Semiconductors and Digi-Key, a leading electronic components distributor, announced that the two companies have entered into a global distribution partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, Digi-Key will distribute Helix Semiconductors’ MxC 200 family of configurable, high-efficiency 15W DC-DC power ICs and evaluation boards worldwide.
The MxC 200 family consists of five monolithic, configurable, high-voltage switch capacitor ICs targeted for use in both non-isolated and isolated, buck or boost DC-DC converter applications. The MxC 200 takes voltage input ranging from 12-48V and converts it to selectable lower voltages, enabling it to achieve unprecedented high efficiency and to stay nearly flat from full load down to 5% load.
Target applications for the MxC 200 include a wide variety of products such as machine vision and security cameras, wireless access points, IoT gateways, and VoIP phones – as well as 24V to 48V intermediate bus converter applications and 48V input telecom and other Power-over-Ethernet applications. The MxC 200 also targets products with 24V inputs, such as HVAC systems and industrial controllers.
Helix Semiconductors’ MxC 200 family of power ICs – including board products, evaluation boards and parts – are currently available for immediate shipment from Digi-Key.
