Flying high with tiny POL

Roband Electronics, a specialist supplier to the defence and aerospace industry, has developed a new point-of-load (POL) regulator for main power units and integrated circuits in military and avionics applications.
Measuring 20 by 25 by 8.0mm and weighing 12g, these new POL regulators have an output of 0.8 to 3.3V at 5A and a 5V input.

Able to withstand temperatures from -55 to 125C, devices are also optimised for vibration, with a machined aluminium enclosure and encapsulation for environmental protection. Said to be efficient to 90 per cent, all units are overload-protected.
