Himalaya Step-Down Switching Regulators

Our Himalaya DC-DC step-down regulators make use of the latest advancements in switching regulator and process technology to minimize power dissipation, temperature rise, solution size, and total cost-of-ownership.

Himalaya buck converters enable synchronous rectification over a wide input range of 4.5V to 60V or 4.5V to 42V, supporting output currents from 25mA to 5A with internal MOSFETs.

A robust protection scheme provides high reliability over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range. A select group of Himalaya buck converters and evaluation kits are compliant to the CISPR 22 electromagnetic interference (EMI) standard. Along with optimized evaluation kits, they can help to increase the first-time success rate for EMI certification testing of your end products.
