Multiphase 12-A DC-DC Buck Converter

Dialog Semiconductor recently announced the DA9210-A power management IC (PMIC). A multiphase, automotive-grade, 12A DC-DC buck converter, the DA9210-A supplies the high current core rails of microprocessor devices. Designed for automotive applications, the DA9210-A is optimized for the supply of CPUs and GPUs and can support load currents of up to 12 A in single-chip configuration and 24 A in dual parallel configuration.

The PMIC’s features, benefits, and specs:

  • High efficiency over a wide output range
  • Accepts input voltages from 2.8 to 5.5 VDC
  • Delivers an output voltage between 0.3 and 1.57 V, with ±2.5% output voltage accuracy
  • 3-MHz nominal switching frequency
  • Fully AEC-Q100 grade 3 qualified
  • 42 WL-CSP package
