Learn about the MP(Q)457x family of synchronous buck switching converters with configurable frequency, and how integrated internal high-side and low-side power MOSFETs offer high efficiency without the need for an external Schottky diode.
The current market situation requires customers to optimize their supply chain and the parts they use in their designs In addition saving engineering time and efforts is a constant requirement, which is why re-using devices like buck converters across several product platforms is commonplace.
However, different platforms may require different power levels. This may lead to new device selection if a previously used converter can not be scaled for a higher current rating.
To address this challenge, MPS offers family of devices that accommodate the same packaging and layout but allow scaling of the current and power rating.
An example is the MP(Q)457x family of devices, offering a wide 4.5V to 60V input voltage and current ratings from 0.6A to 2.5A in the same QFN-12 (2.5mmx3mm) pinout. It can therefore be used across multiple designs with minimal layout change, making the DC/DC converter one less thing to worry about when taking your next product to market.
