Efficient Step-down Voltage Conversion

TI TPSM53604 step-down power module

TI’s TPSM53604 is a 36-V, 4-A step-down power module shrinks solution size by 30% and delivers excellent thermal performance.

Thermal performance is an important aspect of any power converter design. TI’s new power module solves the thermal design challenge by integrating a very high efficiency IC inside a routable lead frame QFN-type package.

The TPSM53604 power module is a highly integrated 4-A power solution that combines a 36-V input, step-down, DC/DC converter with power MOSFETs, a shielded inductor, and passives in a thermally-enhanced QFN package. The 5 mm x 5.5 mm x 4 mm, 15-pin QFN package uses routable lead-frame technology for enhanced thermal performance, small footprint, and low EMI. The package footprint has all pins accessible from the perimeter and a single large thermal pad for simple layout and easy handling in manufacturing.

The total solution requires as few as four external components and eliminates the loop compensation and magnetics part selection from the design process. The full feature set includes power good, programmable UVLO, prebias start-up, overcurrent, and overtemperature protections, making the TPSM53604 an excellent device for powering a wide range of applications.

Micron 2300 & 2210 QLC NVMe SSDs Now Available

Micron SSD

Micron has announced the immediate availability of the Micron 2300 and Micron 2210, two new NVMe M.2 SSDs designed for client computing applications. The Micron 2300 SSD is ideal for compute-heavy applications while the Micron 2210 combines NVMe performance with low-cost QLC NAND for a very affordable overall price point.

Both SSDs leverage Micron’s 96-layer 3D NAND technology, which combines power-savings, up to 2TB in capacity, and a compact form factor for flexible deployment. Micron also indicates enhanced client security features and capabilities for protecting data as well as TCG Opal 2.0 and TCG Pyrite 2.0 support.

The Micron® 2300 SSD combines the power and density needed to drive compute-heavy applications in a compact form factor with the reduced power consumption modern mobile users demand. For the first time, Micron brings together NVMe performance and low-cost quad-level-cell (QLC) NAND in the Micron® 2210 QLC SSD. It combines fast NVMe throughput and Micron’s leadership in QLC technology to offer flash capabilities at hard disk drive-like price points while reducing power consumption by 15 times when compared to hard drives.

60-V MOSFET Delivers Greater Power Density

Vishay MOSFET

Vishay’s dual N-channel 60-V MOSFET delivers increased power density and efficiency for a range of applications, including battery management systems, plug-in and wireless chargers, DC/DC converters, and power supplies.

Vishay’s new Siliconix SiSF20DN common-drain dual N-channel 60-V MOSFET in a compact, thermally enhanced PowerPAK 1212-8SCD package is designed to increase power density and efficiency in battery management systems, plug-in and wireless chargers, DC/DC converters, and power supplies.

The package construction — two monolithically integrated TrenchFET Gen IV N-channel MOSFETs in a common drain configuration — also makes the MOSFET well-suited for bidirectional switching in 24-V systems and industrial applications, including factory automation, power tools, drones, motor drives, white goods, robotics, security/surveillance, and smoke alarms.

The SiSF20DN claims the industry’s lowest RSS(ON) in a 60-V common-drain device, down to 10 mΩ typical at 10 V, the lowest among 60-V devices in a 3 × 3-mm footprint, according to Vishay. This value represents a 42.5% improvement over the next best solution in this footprint size and is 89% lower than Vishay’s previous-generation devices, said Vishay. The result is reduced voltage drops across the power path and minimized power losses for increased efficiency.

In addition, for higher power density, the dual-MOSFET’s RS1-S2(ON) times area is 46.6% lower than the next best alternative MOSFET, even when including larger 6 × 5-mm solutions, said Vishay.

The SiSF20DN is 100% Rg- and UIS-tested, RoHS-compliant, and halogen-free. Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 30 weeks for larger orders. Get a quote.
