Royal Philips Electronics has introduced the PIP202-12M powertrain IC that serves as the power output stage for non-isolated dc/dc synchronous buck converters and enables designs to a higher current density than existing solutions.

Target applications include distributed power schemes for telecommunication and networking equipment, SFF servers and PCs, game consoles, and industrial equipment.

Similar to the company's previous PIP201-12M product, the PIP202-12M integrates all power and driver functions required for a single phase synchronous buck converter. The company claimed that multiphase architectures that provide higher current capabilities can be easily implemented by using one PIP202-12M per phase.

The device is also claimed to save up to 60 percent in board space for a given output current when compared to other solutions.

Although the PIP202-12M has a 25 percent higher current capability than the PIP201-12M, the two devices are interchangeable in form factor and pinout.

Housed in a 10-by-10-by-0.9mm MicroLeadFrame package, the PIP202-12M is claimed by the company to achieve 93 percent system efficiency with an output current of 15A and is capable of 25A continuous output current.

The device features an input conversion voltage range of 3.3V to 12V, and 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.
