MicroPower Direct has launched the SRM7810 series of miniature, point of load (PoL) switching regulators that provide up to 1A of output current.
These PoL converters are specifically designed to replace inefficient linear regulators (LM78xx type) for board level applications that require miniature size, high efficiency, high reliability and low cost. Applications would include industrial process systems, remote or battery backed systems, test/lab instrumentation, robotic systems and board-level power distribution subsystems.
Input range: 4.75 to 20 VDC
Regulated outputs: 3.3 or 5 VDC
Output current: 1A
Efficiency to 93%
MTBF greater than 2.0 Mhours
SIP package measuring 0.45 x 0.30 x 0.40 inches
Wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C
What is level of ripple and noise? Deos it match or better LDO?
Do we have to change existing capacitors with high ESR or does new capacitors are built into the device?
Can you highlight more about stability aspect to avoid oscillation?
