Highly Integrated DC-DC Step-Down Power Module now in stock

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the MAXM17574 DC-DC step-down power module from Maxim Integrated. The flexible, space-saving device allows developers to reduce design complexity and time-to-market in applications ranging from industrial power supplies to HVAC and building control.

The Maxim MAXM17574 power module, available from Mouser Electronics, delivers reliable performance even in harsh industrial environments, offering thermal protection, RESET output-voltage monitoring, and hiccup mode overload protection. The high-efficiency module integrates a synchronous step-down DC-DC converter, fully shielded inductor, and compensation components in a single, low-profile system-in-package (SiP).

With a wide input-voltage range of 4.5 V to 60 V and an output-voltage adjustable range from 0.9 V to 15 V, the power module delivers up to 3 A of continuous output current across a wide industrial ambient operating temperature range of minus 40 to 125 degrees Celsius. The module is housed in a 9.0 × 15 × 9.2 mm package and provides simplified PCB design with only five external components required for a complete power solution. In addition to use in industrial power supply applications, the MAXM17574 devices are ideal for distributed supply regulation, base station point-of-load regulators, and FPGA and DSP point-of-load regulators.

The MAXM17574 module is supported by the MAXM17574 evaluation kit, which is preset for a 5 V output at load currents up to 3 A. The flexible kit features an adjustable soft-start, open-drain RESET signal, adjustable input undervoltage lockout, and external frequency synchronization.
