POL converters provide 8A in small package.
NetPower Technologies has announced a line of non-isolated, point-of-load (POL) converters. The NBS Series is available with two wide input voltage ranges: 2.4V to 5.5V, and 8V to 18V, and it provides maximum output of 8A. Output voltages range from 0.8V to 8V (limited to 75 percent of Vin). The NBS Series converters achieve efficiencies of 94.5 percent at 6A and over 93 percent at 8A load when outputting 3.3V from a 5V input. The converters are compatible with the Micro Lynx footprint, and have outside dimensions of 1.1" X 0.45" X 0.25". The NBS converters have a low profile of 0.25". The NBS POLs have input under-voltage lockout, remote sense, remote control, output trim, short circuit, and over-load and over-temperature protection as standard features. These converters also offer an optional output tracking/sequencing feature that allows customers to optimize their system design. Pricing is from $6.50 per unit.
