Montreal, Quebec, December 10, 2013, 2:50 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce immediate availability of Fairchild Semiconductor's next generation TinyBuck® Point of Load Regulators, delivering up to 15A output current with 96 percent full load efficiency in a small footprint solution offering improved thermal performance and system robustness.
Power supply designers for server, tablet, notebook, telecom, gaming and general purpose point of load (POL) regulation applications are constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency in their designs in order to meet energy standards, extend battery life and reduce total cost of ownership. To help designers meet this challenge, Fairchild Semiconductor developed the next generation TinyBuck regulator family, consisting of integrated POL regulators that incorporate a constant on-time PWM controller and driver with high-side and low-side MOSFETs.
The FAN23xx family enables end-user applications to achieve significantly higher efficiency over a very wide load range. This is achieved through multiple optimizations, such as fine tuned gate drive circuitry with optimized gate drive current and dead times for each specific part number giving two percent higher peak efficiency compared to competitive solutions, and constant on-time architecture with pulse frequency modulation (PFM) for highest light load efficiencies.
Further optimizations help to improve thermal performance and system robustness include reduced switch node ringing, optimized wide duty cycle, and advanced packaging technology to minimize parasitic inductance and resistance, achieving superior thermal performance.
Additionally, the next generation TinyBuck regulator family is supported by an online design tool providing designers a simple, easy-to-use tool that enhances their design and improves time to market.
Fairchild is committed to helping designers meet engineering challenges through technology and process advancements that result in increased performance and functional integration as well as design support resources that minimize components while reducing engineering time.
