Texas Instruments Simplifies Design with 18A Plug-In Power Modules in 30 Percent Smaller Packages

3/27/2003 - Texas Instruments announced a series of 18A output, 5V input ExcaliburTM plug-in power modules. The new PT5800 series of feature-rich power modules provides improved levels of performance in a low-profile, 18-pin package that is one-third smaller than the previous product generation. The modules are ideal for point-of-load applications that use high-performance digital signal processors (DSPs), microprocessors, application specific integrated circuits (ASICs ) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) used in communications, networking and computing.

TIs PT5800 modules operate from a 5V input bus and include output voltage options as low as 1.0V direct current. Other key features include:

Packaging, Pricing and Availability
The PT5800 modules are packaged in an 18-pin small-profile ExcaliburTM copper case that requires no heat-sink, and offers the advantages of solderability and a small footprint (0.736 in2 for suffix N). Measuring two inches by one inch, these Excalibur cases meet critical 8mm height tolerances in horizontal mounting and provide excellent thermal dissipation. PT5800 power modules are now available in volume from TI and its authorized distributors. Pricing per module in quantities of 1,000 is $22.55.
