Targeting energy-efficient server, storage and netcom applications, International Rectifier’s Gen2 SupIRBuck POL voltage regulators deliver 4-A, 8-A, and 12-A output current with benchmark efficiency over the entire load range, according to the company. The 5-mm × 6-mm devices exhibit an input voltage range from 1.5 V to 16 V with 5-V bias; a switching frequency up to 1.5 MHz, and an output voltage range from 0.7 V to 90% of the input voltage. The units include overcurrent and overtemperature protection, enable input with input voltage monitoring capability; hiccup current limit, soft-start, and power good output. The components have advanced pre-bias start-up, 1% accurate 0.7-V reference voltage; sequencing, and a device for DDR memory tracking. From $1.20 each in 10,000 quantities.
