Philips Adds PIP202-12M Integrated Powertrain

August 08, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Royal Philips Electronics (San Jose, CA) introduced the PIP202-12M, a high-performance addition to Philips' integrated powertrain semiconductor portfolio. The new device serves as the power output stage for non-isolated, dc/dc, synchronous-buck converters. Target applications include distributed power schemes for telecommunications and networking equipment, small form factor servers and PCs, industrial markets, and industrial equipment.

The PIP202-12M achieves 93-percent system efficiency with an output current of 15A and is capable of 25A continuous output current. It is housed in a 10mm x 10mm x 0.9mm industry-standard micro-lead frame package that is thermally enhanced by large metal pads exposed on the bottom surface of the package. Due to the slim packaging, heat is also easily dissipated through the top of the package. The device features an input-conversion voltage range of 3.3V to 12V, and an output-voltage range of 0.8V to 5V. In addition, the PIP202-12M is capable of switching up to 1MHz, minimizing output capacitance and allowing smaller magnetic components.

The PIP202-12M is in volume production now. Samples are available upon request.
