Offering 15 W of output power in a minuscule 3.3 mm × 3.3 mm × 1.5 mm package, the highly compact point-of-load modules support a range of high-performance applications, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data, 5G cells, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The TDK FS1406 µPOL DC-DC power modules, available from Mouser Electronics, integrate the matching MOSFET, inductor, and driver in a single semiconductor embedded in substrate (SESUB) package, drastically reducing the device’s form factor by up to 50 percent when compared with modules using side-by-side integrated circuit and inductor. The modules feature an on-chip pulse-width modulation (PWM) controller, integrated MOSFETs, and incorporated inductors and capacitors, resulting in a highly accurate regulator with extremely high power density of 1 watt per mm³.
The plug-and-play devices reduce system cost and design time, and are ideal for industrial applications that require high power density, including network communications, servers, and storage. The modules also support imaging, radars, security, and other machines for the medical industry.
