4.5V to 60V, 300mA Himalaya uSLIC Step-Down Power Module

Save Space and Reduce Heat, 300mA Synchronous Buck, Highly Efficient, Power Module in our uSLIC Package

Product Details

The Himalaya series of voltage regulator ICs and power modules enable cooler, smaller, and simpler power-supply solutions. The MAXM15062/MAXM15063/MAXM15064 are a family of high-efficiency, synchronous step-down DC-DC modules with integrated controller, MOSFETs, compensation components, and inductor that operate over a wide input-voltage range. The modules operate from 4.5V to 60V input and deliver up to 300mA output current. The MAXM15062 and MAXM15063 are fixed 3.3V and 5V output modules respectively. The MAXM15064 is an adjustable output (0.9V to 5V) module. The modules significantly reduce design complexity, manufacturing risks, and offer a true plug and play power/ supply solution, reducing time-to-market.

The MAXM15062/3/4 modules employ peak-currentmode control architecture. To reduce input inrush current, the modules offer a fixed 4.1ms soft-start time.

The MAXM15062/3/4 module is available in a low profile, compact 10-pin, 2.6mm × 3mm × 1.5mm, uSLIC™ package.
