Helix Semiconductors has developed a family of low-profile DC-DC converters using its capacitive conversion technology. The family of capacitive DC-DC converters is designed to take voltage input ranging from 12-48V and convert it to selectable lower voltages. It uses the Helix MxC 200 power IC, which began mass production last year.
With five monolithic, configurable, high-voltage switch capacitor chips, the family is targeted to both non-isolated and isolated, buck or boost DC-DC converter applications. These include appliances, communications equipment, VoIP phones, high-resolution video for machine vision and security cameras, smart lighting, smart audio/video entertainment, and electric vehicles.
