Mouser offers ADI’s step-down regulators Andy Pratt November 27, 2015 ICs & Semiconductors, Wearable Distributor Mouser. is now stocking the ADP5301 low power, step-down regulators from Analog Devices. The company buck regulators enable designers to extend battery life in portable devices with one of the highest ultra-light-load power conversion efficiencies in the industry, claims the company. Delivering a 90% efficiency rating and consuming only 180nA of quiescent current, the regulators are suitable for IoT applications. The step-down regulator provides an input start-up voltage range from 2.15 to 6.5V, enabling designers to incorporate a variety of battery sources or other power sources and architectures. There is an integrated voltage supervisory function that increases overall system reliability, and output voltage is selectable from 0.8 to 5.0V through an external VID resistor and factory fuse. Flexible power management capabilities are achieved through the user-selectable sync/mode pin. This pin allows the regulator to run between hysteresis mode and a low-noise forced PWM mode. In PWM mode, the regulator produces a lower output ripple and supplies up to 500mA of output current; in hysteresis mode it achieves excellent efficiency at a power of less than 1mW and provides up to 50 mA of output current. This switchable configuration during operation provides efficient power management to extend battery life and lower system noise requirements. Other key features include separate enabling and quick-output discharge, as well as safety features such as over-current protection, thermal shutdown, and input under-voltage lockout. The regulators are available now in a nine-ball, 1.65 × 1.87mm WLCSP that requires less than 3.1mm² for mounting. Target applications are IoT, including energy (gas and water) metering, wearable devices, wireless sensor networks, portable and battery-powered equipment, medical devices and keep-alive power supplies. An evaluation board, the 584-ADP5301-EVALZ, is also available through the distributor website. http://www.mouser.com/new/Analog-Devices/adi-adp5301-regulator WEARTECHDESIGN.COM – Latest News/Advice on Technology for Wearable Devices Weartechdesign is unlike any other website currently serving the technology for wearable devices.
