Power Management IC Delivers Low Power Loss with Low EMI
International Rectifier introduced the iP2005A. The device is optimized for very low EMI, eliminating the need for external snubber circuits in EMI-sensitive designs such as consumer game consoles. By eliminating external snubbers, it reduces per phase power loss by up to 2.3W compared to the previous generation device that required an external resistor and capacitor snubber with values of 2.2? and 10nF respectively. Available in a 7.7 mm × 7.7 mm × 1.7 mm LGA package, each iP2005A building block is capable of delivering up to 40A at 0.8V to 5.5V output. By using these building blocks in a multi-phase system, currents up to 160 amps can be achieved with an industry standard four-phase controller. Pricing begins at $3.31 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
