The Maxim uSLIC module provides a switching regulator with a LDO shape
Post Date: 2018-03-22
Micro system-level IC (“uSLIC”) modules from Maxim claim to deliver switching regulators with the size and simplicity of a linear regulator (LDO).
The size of MAXM17532 and MAXM15462 power modules is 2.6mm x 3.0mm x 1.5mm.
Maxim's uSLIC power module uses a super small package size to reduce the power voltage by 2.25 times, by integrating the Himalaya step-down regulator and integrated inductor with a built-in FET, compensation and other functions.
The combination of these components enables designers to use modules in small space constrained systems, and at the same time meet mechanical and EMI standards.
Engineers can integrate existing power modules into almost the same space in LDO.
The uSLIC DC-DC step-down stabilizer can work within the input range of 4V to 42V, and supports a variety of applications under the nominal input voltage of 5V, 12V, 24V and 36V, and has a reliable allowance for today's harsh applications.
They work in the temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius to + 125 degrees Celsius.
