Future Electronics Releases New etech ALERT Featuring Intersil’s ISL8203M Series

Montreal, Canada – April 27, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently released a new etech ALERT highlighting the ISL8203M Series from Intersil.

Intersil’s new ISL8203M power module simplifies power supply design for FPGAs, ASICs, microprocessors, DSPs and other point of load conversions in a broad range of systems. The module’s compact 9.0mm x 6.5mm x 1.83mm footprint combined with industry-leading 95% efficiency provides you with a high performance, easy to use solution for low power, low voltage applications. It’s a complete power system in an encapsulated module that includes a PWM controller, synchronous switching MOSFETs, inductors and passive components.

With an adjustable output voltage between 0.8V and 5V, one device can be used to build a single 6A or dual output 3A power supply. The ISL8203M also offers best-in-class 15°C/W thermal performance and delivers 6A at 85°C without the need for heat sinks or a fan. Its high power density and thermal performance allow the ISL8203M to operate at full load over a wide temperature range.

The ISL8203M also provides over-temperature, over-current and under-voltage lockout protection, further enhancing the module’s robustness and reliability. The ISL8203M is available in a thermally-enhanced, compact QFN package.

Future Electronics Launches New Video Demonstrating Intersil’s ISL8203M Series

Montreal, Canada – April 28, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently launched a new video discussing the ISL8203M Series from Intersil.

The video discusses some of the main reasons for using power modules, includes an introduction of ISL8203M power module, and presents Intersil’s product portfolio of power module solutions, while demonstrating the benefits of the products.

Using only nine external components, Intersil’s ISL8203M power module solution saves hundreds of man-hours in design, procurement, PCB board layout, and manufacturing. It requires few external components, and has a small package size allowing for high density power design. The patented packaging allows for high load currents without heat sinks or fans. Additional advantages of the ISL8203M include pick and place manufacturability, the ability to parallel devices in a small PCB board area, and high efficiency to minimize heat.

The ISL8203M is a complete DC to DC step down power supply solution encapsulated in a single package. Operating from the industry standard 5V or 3.3V power rails, it is capable of providing up to 6A of continuous output current as a single channel point of load, or up to 3A per channel as a dual channel point of load making it a very versatile solution. The ISL8203M supports output voltages as low as 0.8V and offers up to 95% efficiency on several conversion ratios. Furthermore, a fast 1.1MHz control loop architecture allows a fast transient response to any output current load step. Finally, the thermally enhanced QFN is only 9mm x 6.5mm x 1.83mm.

The ISL8203MEVAL2Z evaluation board is designed to demonstrate the performance of the ISL8203M. The board is by default set up to demonstrate two 3A outputs independently, and can also be easily set up for current sharing 6A by changing placeholder resistors.

Intersil’s ISL8203M power module reduces complexity and eliminates the need for specialized power design knowledge, thus reducing time to market.

Future Electronics Offers Intersil’s ISL8203M Dual 3A/Single 6A Step Down DC/DC Power Modules

Montreal, Canada – February 20, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced availability of ISL8203M dual 3A/single 6A step down DC/DC power modules from Intersil.

The ISL8203M is an integrated step down power module rated for dual 3A output current or 6A current sharing operation. Optimized for generating low output voltages down to 0.8V, the ISL8203M is ideal for any low power low voltage applications.

The supply voltage range is from 2.85V to 6V. The two channels are 180° out-of-phase for input RMS current and EMI reduction. Each channel is capable of 3A output current. They can be combined to form a single 6A output in current sharing mode. While in current sharing mode, the interleaving of the two channels reduces input and output voltage ripple.

Features include a dual 3A and single 6A switching power supply, 2.85V to 6V input voltage range, 1.5ms internal digital soft-start, peak current limiting and hiccup mode short circuit protection, overcurrent protection, and up to 95% efficiency, in a 9.0 x 6.5 x 1.83mm QFN package.
