Voltage regulators suit point-of-load applications

International Rectifier introduces the iP1837 and iP1827 iPowIR voltage regulators for point-of-load (POL) applications including servers, netcom, data storage, and telecom equipment requiring high current. The iP1837 and iP1827 devices integrate a control MOSFET, synchronous FETKY, bootstrap diode, bootstrap capacitor, and internal over-current protection in a compact 7.7 x 7.7 mm LGA wireless package, reducing component count and shrinking PCB size by 20% compared to discrete solutions.

The new devices feature true differential voltage sensing for precise regulation, +/- 0.5% accurate reference voltage over-temperature, precision deadtime trim to maximize efficiency, and body braking to optimize transient response. Additionally, the iP1837 and iP1827 are pin-compatible for 25 and 35 A applications, offer wide input voltage range of 1.5 to 16 V, programmable frequency up to 1.5 MHz, flexible 5 V bias or 3.3 V bias/single input, and are optimized for 12 V input operations and low output voltages.

The devices are fully protected and feature enhanced thermally compensated internal hiccup over-current protection allowing flat current limit over-temperature. Additional features include pre-bias start-up, over-voltage protection, thermal shutdown, enable pin with voltage monitoring capability, power good output, and programmable soft start.
