Flex Power Modules has launched a 5A/50W output digital PoL regulator that provides a 25 percent higher current and power output with an efficiency of typically 96 percent at 12Vin, 3.3Vout and 80 percent load
The BMR4615001/001 point of load (PoL) module adds a digital PMBus interface that enables designers to monitor, configure and control the regulator, and like the other BMR461 series is supported by the comprehensive Flex Power Designer design tool.
The input voltage range of the point of load module is 4.5V to 14V with a 15A output in response to customer demands, offering increased current and power in the compact 12.2 x 12.2 x 8.0mm (0.48 x 0.48 x 0.315in) package of the BMR461 series. The smaller PCB space means the module is aimed at a range of applications, including wireless and fixed telecoms infrastructure, datacoms uses such as network routers and data centres, and industrial applications including Industry 4.0 and process automation.
“Our customers are telling us they have increased current requirements, including for the I/O and core voltages for FPGAs, ASICs and processors, and they are also looking for higher power density. The new regulator meets these demands, and builds on the success of our familiar, reliable BMR461 series,” said Olle Hellgren, Director of Product Management and Business Development at Flex Power Modules.
The regulator is designed in accordance with the safety standards IEC/EN/UL 62368-1. Reliability is high, with an MTBF of 24 million hours. It is available in OEM quantities this month.
