ISL8204M

Complete High Efficiency DC/DC Power Module

Product Status: Mass Production

OVERVIEW

The ISL8204M, ISL8206M is a family of pin-compatible power modules to the ISL8201M. These are simple and easy to use, high power DC/DC modules and are ideal for a wide variety of applications. The ISL820xM family of high current DC/DC step-down modules virtually eliminate design and manufacturing risks while dramatically improving time to market.

The simplicity is in the family's "Off The Shelf" unassisted implementation. All you need is the ISL820xM for the current requirement of your design, bulk input and output capacitors and one resistor, to program the output voltage, and you have a complete high current power design ready for your market.

This family of buck converters is packaged in a thermally enhanced compact (15mmx15mm) overmolded QFN Package that operates without a heatsink, even at full load over temperature. The package supports simple, reliable, automated assembly using standard surface mount equipment while making it easy to probe to all pins. The lack of a required heat dissipation layer, provides easy access to all pins and the limited number of the external components reduce the PCB to a component layer and a simple ground layer.

Additionally, each IC in the family is footprint compatible, making it easy to change your design to meet different power needs without changing your layout. One simple layout fits all.

Industry-Leading 10A and 15A Fully Encapsulated PMBus Power Modules

The ISL828xM hybrid digital and ISL821xM analog power modules feature integrated LDOs that enable single-supply operation. They leverage Renesas’ patented R4™ high-speed control loop architecture with inherent line voltage feed-forward, providing designers a unique combination of ultra-fast load transient response and high noise immunity. Their proprietary Grid HDA package offers unmatched electrical and thermal performance through a single-layer conductive package substrate that efficiently transfers heat from the module to the system board, and dissipates it without requiring airflow or heatsinks – even under heavy load conditions.
