Variable Step Down Micro Modules

November 05, 2019 by Wurth Elektronik

This article highlights Würth Elektronik MagI³C-VDMM (Variable Step Down Micro Module) power module family with more powerful 1 A and 1.2 A versions.

The MagI³C-VDMM (Variable Step Down Micro Module) power module family from Würth Elektronik is supplemented by more powerful 1A and 1.2A versions. The input voltage range (from 2.5 to 5.5V) covers the standard 3.3 and 5V bus voltages, and the adjustable output voltage ranges from 0.8 to 5.5V. The modules have been designed for high efficiency in the low load range. The integration of the DC-DC converter and coil makes for a very compact solution in an LGA-6EP package.

The MagI³C-VDMM series is particularly suitable as a replacement for linear regulators. Applications include the supply of interfaces, microcontrollers, microprocessors, DSPs and FPGAs. Thanks to their small size and high efficiency (over 96%), they are particularly suitable for use in mobile and battery-powered devices. To save energy, the VDMM can be “put to sleep” using an additional PIN, which extends battery life. The MagI³C VDMM series features excellent electromagnetic compatibility. The modules meet the CISP-32 standard for Class B radiated interference without additional filter elements. The new member of the MagI³C-VDMM family is available from stock. Free samples can be requested.
