DC/DC step-down converter delivers 1V to 5V to space applications

November 27, 2015 // By Julien Happich
The 3DPM0289 DC/DC step-down converter from 3D PLUS is based on a Buck topology and provides a unique solution for robust low power distribution systems.

The 3D PLUS space qualified technology enables a 12.5x11x10mm footprint, making it suitable to supply ASICs, FPGA, microprocessors, memories or any other device powered from 1V to 5V in high reliability applications. The PoL Power Module operates over a wide input voltage range from 4.5V to 14V, providing up to 2A of output current with an efficiency higher than 90%.

It offers the possibility to run in parallel configuration in order to increase the output current up to 4A as a single output providing very good dynamic performances. Only an external resistor is needed for output regulation and the module is fully protected against output overload, input under-voltage and internal over-temperature and radiation hardened by design.
