TI Packs 3-A Plug-in Power Module into 12 mm x 10 mm Package

11/1/2004 - Texas Instruments announced a highly integrated point of load power module that supports up to 3-A of output current and is smaller than a standard TO-220 linear regulator. The new plug-in power module eliminates the need for a heat sink, providing up to 94 percent efficiency to support low-voltage point-of-load power requirements of DSPs, FPGAs, ASICs and microcontrollers used in telecommunications, networking equipment, instrumentation and high-end consumer products.

TI's PTH04070W plug-in module allows operation from either a 3.3-V or 5-V input bus. Leveraging TI's advanced switch-mode DC/DC topology, the module can efficiently convert a 5-V input bus down to 0.9-V with less than 1-W of power dissipation. Power density is an industry leading 160-W per cubic inch. The output voltage can be adjusted to any voltage from 0.9-V to 3.6-V using a single external resistor.

Key Features for PTH04070W:

Packaging, Pricing and Availability
The PTH04070W module comes in a double-sided, horizontal through-hole or surface-mount package that measures 12.3 mm x 10.2 mm x 3.5 mm. The power modules are now available in volume production from TI and its authorized distributors. Pricing per module in quantities of 1,000 is $4.28. Lead (Pb)-free & RoHS-compatible versions will be available in 1Q05. Application notes, reference designs and TIs Q4 2004 Power Management Selection Guide are available through power.ti.com.
