Maxim’s New Essential Analog Power ICs

Maxim Integrated has launched three new Essential Analog ICs that can now extend battery life and reduce the solution size of consumer, industrial, healthcare and IoT systems.

Maxim The MAX17227A 2A nano power boost converter, the MAX17291 high voltage, 1A boost converter and the MAX38911 500mA LDO all provide the lowest quiescent current among competitive solutions to improve system efficiency and increase battery life.

“The three new Efficient Power ICs from Maxim’s Essential Analog portfolio offer designers a path to simultaneously improve efficiency and reduce solution size,” said Vickram Vathulya, Vice President, Core Products Group at Maxim Integrated. “For industrial, consumer and healthcare operations, Maxim sets the bar for extending battery life by offering the lowest quiescent power in each category.”

Three new Efficient Power ICs from Maxim’s Essential Analog portfolio help ease the tradeoffs with both industry-leading lowest quiescent current and smallest solution size.

MAX17227A:  For battery-operated consumer accessories, IoT and medical wearable systems that need to boost power, the MAX17227A delivers the highest output power and the lowest quiescent current. It handles up to 2A switch current, twice that of the closest competitive solution. And it consumes half the quiescent current, at just 350nA.

MAX17291: Delivering a high voltage boost up to 20V, the MAX17291 offers a quiescent current that is 80 percent lower and a solution size that is 60 percent smaller than the closest competitive offerings.

MAX38911: Up to 50 percent smaller than competitive solutions, the MAX38911 500mA LDO for battery-operated IoT systems draws only 19µA during idle mode to extend battery life up to 10 percent. It also has the industry’s best power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) at a level of 16dB better than the closest competitor, thus helping prevent noisy power supplies from interfering with critical functions such as precise measurements and communications.

Key Advantages:

  • Longest Battery Life: All three ICs are part of Maxim’s Efficient Power portfolio and lead the industry with the lowest quiescent current
  • Smallest Size: Up to 50 percent smaller than the closest competitive solutions
  • High Reliability: Features such as short-circuit protection and high PSRR help IoT systems overcome disruptions in harsh environments
