Sipex Announces Industry's Smallest 30V DC/DC Buck Controllers



The SP612X Family provides internal compensation minimizing board space in industrial systems

MILPITAS, Calif., June 28 /-- Sipex Corporation (NASDAQ:SIPX) today announced the release of the SP6125, SP6126, and SP6127, a family of High-Voltage Step Down DC/DC Controllers in a 2.9x2.8mm TSOT6 package. These regulators feature an input voltage range up to 30V which make them capable of supporting the wide variety of supply rails found in many industrial and embedded systems. This family is also supported by Sipex's PowerLab online design tool and downloadable spice models.

The 300kHz SP6125, 600kHz SP6126, and the 900kHz SP6127 provide engineers a common architecture which allows them to optimize each design for size and efficiency. These controllers are appropriate for generating a 5V or 3.3V system bus, as well as, providing the 1.xV core voltage for devices such as Altera's Cyclone(R) and Xilinx's Spartan(TM) series FPGAs.

Sipex innovative design has integrated a complete set of features into a minimum package size. The Internal control loop compensation and true op-amp error amplifier provides fast transient response while minimizing external component count. The Vin feed forward voltage mode architecture also ensures stable operation over the entire input voltage range to ensure design reliability.

"As system designers try to increase the functionality of their products, even large boards have less and less space available for the power supply. The small solution size and easy implementation allow the designer to add more product features," said Jon Cronk, Power Management Marketing Director. "Sipex's PowerLab online design tool keeps design time to a minimum so the engineer can reduce their time to market."

Lee Cleveland, Sr. Vice President of Engineering adds, "The 4.5V to 30V operating range within this small package represents a true challenge in power management design. Sipex continues to expand it's capability in solving difficult engineering problems for our customers."

Pricing and Availability
SP6125, SP6126, and SP6127 are available in a Pb-free, 6-pin 2.9x1.6mm TSOT specified over the -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C temperature range. Pricing for these products begins at $0.95 in 1,000 piece quantities. Datasheets and additional information on this family and other Sipex product offerings may be found on the company web site at http://www.sipex.com/.
