Helix Semiconductors announced a new DC-DC product family that maximizes low-profile DC-DC power delivery to create leading-class, high-power density solutions. Based on the technology platform first introduced in its highly efficient MxC 200 power IC, which began mass production last year, the new family is designed to take voltage input ranging from 12-48V and convert it to selectable lower voltages, enabling unprecedented high efficiency.
The new DC-DC product family consists of ICs and evaluation boards for four general dc-dc application areas:
- Multi-output product – 48V 15W DC-DC converter (2D-048-015A and MxC 290)
- High-output product – 48V 15W DC-DC converter (2D-048-015B and MxC 291/ MxC 293)
- Voltage-boost product – 12V 3W DC-DC converter (2U-012-010A and MxC 284)
- Capacitive Isolation (CapIso™) product (pictured at the top of this article) – 48V 10W DC-DC converter (2I-048-010A and MxC 270) and 24V 10W DC-DC converter (2D-024-010A and MxC 274)
