The MxL7213 and the previously released MxL7204 dual 4A power module target any type of application including demanding test and measurement projects. Its dual step-down power module integrates the control, drivers, bootstrap diodes, inductors and MOSFETs in a single package for point-of-load supplies. The MxL7213 supports two outputs each with an output voltage range of 0.6V to 5.3V, set by a single external resistor.
The MxL7213 requires just a few input and output capacitors which simplifies design and shortens time-to-market. The module supplies either two 13A outputs, a single 26A or up to 100A when paralleled with additional MxL7213 modules. Attention to thermal design, component selection and internal construction results in higher efficiency and extended operating range relative to devices with the same industry standard pinout.
“The MxL7213 is our highest output current power module solution to date,” explains Joseph Tseng, MaxLinear Director of Marketing, Power Management. "It is the latest addition to our growing family of current mode, dual channel LGA/BGA power solutions targeted at networking and industrial equipment such as optical routers and test equipment. Our dual power modules offer system designers significant advantages over competing devices such as improved efficiency and better thermal performance.”
The MxL7213 is available now in a 15mm x 15mm x 4.41mm LGA package and a 15mm x 15mm x 5.01mm BGA package with RoHS compliant terminal finish. Samples and evaluation boards are available.
