Mouser Electronics releases LMZM23600 and LMZM23601 step-down DC-DC power modules from Texas Instruments (TI). Housed in a compact, 3.8 mm × 3 mm × 1.6 mm MicroSiP package, the modules can reduce board space by up to 58 percent, making the LMZM23601 the smallest 1 A DC/DC power module on the market for industrial applications.
Texas Instruments’ 0.5 A LMZM23600 and 1 A LMZM23601 power modules exclusive from Mouser Electronics are in a fixed-output voltage of either 3.3 V and 5 V or with an adjustable output voltage of 2.5 V to 15 V. The modules feature an integrated inductor and an input voltage range of 4 V to 36 V with up to 92 percent efficiency to minimize energy loss. The modules’ 30 µA quiescent current increases light-load efficiency and extends battery life in battery-powered applications.
The TI LMZM2360x power modules require only two external components for fixed-output voltage performance, offering an easy-to-use solution for designers, as well as plug-and-play capability. The power modules support a seamless transition between forced PWM mode and auto PFM mode, enabling both constant-frequency operations and high-efficiency operations with light loads. The modules are optimized for low-EMI, performance-driven industrial applications and include built-in control loop compensation, soft start, current limit protection, and under voltage lockout.
The LMZM2360x modules are supported by the LMZM23600 and LMZM23601 evaluation modules, fully assembled and tested modules that allow developers to evaluate the features and performance of the power modules. The LMZM236000 evaluation module is available in all three output voltage options, while the LMZM23601 evaluation module is available in an adjustable 2.5 V to 15 V version.
The LMZM2360x power modules are ideal for space-constrained designs including:
- sensor transmitters
- grid infrastructure
- field transmitters
- ultrasound scanner
- network security cameras
