The Intel® Enpirion® EP5362QI is a 600 mA DC-DC step-down (buck) converter with integrated inductor that achieves a total solution footprint of only 36 mm2 without compromising efficiency.
A complete power system-on-a-chip (PowerSoC), the EP5362QI integrates power switches, inductor, gate drive, controller, and compensation in a tiny 5 mm x 4 mm package. The 1.1 mm profile and small footprint enable the use of this part where space is at a premium. In addition, this point-of-load solution requires only two external components, reducing the overall solution cost and simplifying the supply.
The EP5362QI utilizes a 3-pin VID output voltage selector that allows the designer to choose one of seven pre-defined output voltage levels, or an external voltage divider can be employed to set the output voltage.
This step-down converter power management IC is an excellent choice for low-power applications that require a small solution footprint, high efficiency, exceptional thermal performance, low noise, high reliability, and ease of use. It is pin compatible with the EP5352QI (500 mA) and the EP5382QI (800 mA) PowerSoC DC-DC step-down converters.
