Power module speeds time to market
The MAXM17574 DC-DC step-down power module from Maxim Integrated is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The flexible, space-saving device allows developers to reduce design complexity and time-to-market in applications ranging from industrial power supplies to HVAC and building control.
The power module delivers reliable performance even in harsh industrial environments, offering thermal protection, RESET output-voltage monitoring, and hiccup mode overload protection.
It integrates a synchronous step-down DC-DC converter, fully shielded inductor, and compensation components in a single, low-profile system-in-package (SiP).
With a wide input-voltage range of 4.5V to 60V and an output-voltage adjustable range from 0.9V to 15V, the power module delivers up to 3A of continuous output current across a wide industrial ambient operating temperature range of minus 40 to 125 degrees Celsius.
The module is housed in a 9.0 × 15 × 9.2mm package and provides simplified PCB design with only five external components required for a complete power solution.
In addition to use in industrial power supply applications, the MAXM17574 devices are ideal for distributed supply regulation, base station point-of-load regulators, and FPGA and DSP point-of-load regulators.
The MAXM17574 module is supported by the MAXM17574 evaluation kit, which is preset for a 5 V output at load currents up to 3 A. The flexible kit features an adjustable soft-start, open-drain RESET signal, adjustable input undervoltage lockout, and external frequency synchronisation.
