Fairchild Semiconductor is offering power supply designers a Power-SPM module that promises to increase efficiency in power supplies to meet Energy Star requirements. The Power-SPM FPP06R001 is a synchronous rectification module that increases power efficiency, system ruggedness and space efficiency in power supply designs. Incorporating two PowerTrench MOSFETs and a high current gate driver in a compact transfer-molded package, the Power-SPM simplifies board design, eliminates up to 10 discrete components and reduces board space by 20 percent. It provides 10 percent lower on-resistance and 16 percent lower stray inductance compared to discrete solutions, which results in lower thermal dissipation and reduced voltage stress. Its high efficiency is instrumental in helping power supply designs meet next generation Energy Star requirements. These requirements specify that power supplies must achieve 85 percent or greater efficiency at normal output load conditions.

The FPP06R001 features a very compact EPM15 package addresses the low-profile requirements of high-end, ultraslim SMPS designs. It also offers 10 percent lower on-resistance versus comparable discrete solutions and 16 percent lower stray inductance for reduced unwanted high voltage spikes, which increases design margin and lowers EMI. The company adds that the device also offers excellent high current driving capability with its built-in buffer IC.

The Power-SPM module is part of a comprehensive portfolio of Fairchild's energy-efficient products. From 1W to 1,200W, Fairchild's solutions meet regulations that are of paramount concern to today's designers such as Energy Star, PFC requirements, the Fairchild recognizes that today's applications require increased efficiency even as their product features multiply and the product itself shrinks in size. Fairchild continues to develop cutting-edge solutions that integrate functionality and advance packaging technologies to improve efficiency and thermal characteristics while saving board space and reducing component count.

The FPP06R001 utilizes Pb-free terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/Jedec standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet RoHS requirements.

Pricing starts at $ 5 each. Samples are available now. Delivery is 12 weeks ARO.

Fairchild is one of the exhibitors in the upcoming IIC-China 2008.
