New DC-DC Converters Offer 50 Percent Smaller Footprint

Murata today unveiled the MYW series from the MonoBK™ DC-DC converter family. The new point-of-load (POL) modules offer a 50-percent smaller footprint than competing solutions and set new standards in size, efficiency and performance. The highly integrated, multi-output DC-DC converters leverage Murata’s core technology advantages in power module development, advanced 3D integrated packaging and passive component expertise.

The MonoBK™ MYW series are 4-channel DC–DC converters that integrate all passive components, including inductors, into a tiny form factor of 9.3 mm x 9.0 mm x 2.9 mm (L × W × H). The products feature an input voltage range of 2.8–5.5V and programmable outputs of 0.4–3.58V up to 3.0 amps. Most applications will require few external components.

Due to the unique packaging process, the module has an outstanding thermal performance that can support a wide temperature range of -40 to +105°C. Based on a fixed-frequency synchronous buck converter switching topology, this high-efficiency POL module features on/off control and power-good signal out.

The first product in the series, the MYWGC3R53FFW92RAE, features protections for over-current (OCP), over-voltage (OVP), under-voltage (UVP) and over-temperature (OTP). Target power applications include FPGAs, CPUs and datacom/telecom systems. The product is sampling now, and mass production is scheduled for Q2 2020.

“In the power semiconductor market, there is a constant quest for smaller and more energy-efficient devices,” said Kenji Saito, Senior Manager of Marketing, Low Power Product, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. “With the MYW series, Murata is bringing to market highly integrated multi-output DC-DC converters that set new standards for efficiency, size and performance.”
