Buck converters provide up to 20A

Recom is offering new parts in its RPH and RPL buck converters series with ratings between 1A and 20A.

For example, the RPL-1.0: operates over an input range of three to 22V with an adjustable output of 0.6 to 12V at 1A; comes in a compact 3 by 3mm LGA-M footprint; and is only 2mm tall. Depending on the input/output voltage combination, the part operates up to an ambient temperature of more than 80°C at full load and up to 125°C ambient with derating. Efficiency is 84 per cent typical at 5V in and 3.3V out.

The RPL-20, with its 20A rating, is in a 7 by 7 by 4.4mm LGA-M package size, taking power density to a new level. Output is programmable from 0.6 to 5.5V and the inputrange is 4 to 16V. Efficiency is as high as 94 per cent, which enables operation at up to 90°C ambient at full load.
