Murata Electronics North America has introduced the low-cost MPD6S022S DC/DC converter, aimed at digital consumer home electronics. Developed with advanced circuit design techniques, this point-of-load (POL) non-isolated converter measures only 21mm x 9mm x 21mm in a SIL package.

The MPD6S022S DC/DC converter offers 10.8W with high efficiency (up to 95 percent) and zero de-rating. These attributes combined with the wide 3-5.5V input voltage range, wide adjustable 1.1-3.6V output range and 0C to 70C operating temperature range make it suitable for use in digital consumer home electronics such as televisions and DVD players. The device is RoHS6 compliant.

This design also does not require an external capacitor, as compared to conventional solutions that require large external capacitors to minimize a converter's output-voltage variation in response to load-current changes, which saves additional board space.

Pricing starts at $2.08 price in volume quantities. Lead time is approximately 8 to 12 weeks.
