EM2120,30,40 PowerSoC DC-DC Step-Down Converters

Intel offers the EM21x0 single output digital PowerSoC synchronous step-down converter with advanced digital control techniques

Image of Intel's EM2130, 30 A PowerSoC DC-DC Step-Down ConvertersIntel's Enpirion® EM2120, EM2130, and EM2140 are a family of pin-compatible 20 A, 30 A, and 40 A fully integrated high-efficiency DC-DC step down digital PowerSoC. This family delivers an outstanding combination of power density and conversion efficiency. The integrated power switches, inductor, gate drive, controller, and compensation in a small 11 x 17 mm QFN package. The EM2130 is PMBus version 1.2 compatible, which helps to configure the device settings including output voltage, fault thresholds, and warnings depending on application needs.

With full integration of all DC-DC components into the package, these are designed, characterized, and qualified as a complete power system, resulting in a low-risk solution with low failure in time (FIT) rates. These will dramatically improve the system reliability versus discrete power supply solutions.

Excellent thermal performance and custom designed magnetics enhance efficiency and enables this family to deliver up to 40 A continuous operating current across the full industrial operating temperature range. The proprietary digital power conversion loop of the controller in the EM2130 is designed to meet the precise voltage and fast transient requirements of core rails of high-performance FPGAs, ASICs, DSPs, and processors within a total solution size of 360 mm².
