Sipex Introduces Ultra Low Profile Dual Channel LDO Regulator for Wireless and Portable Applications

0.6mm DFN-8 package enables the SP6265 to satisfy the need for height critical applications

MILPITAS, Calif., March 20 -- Sipex Corporation today expanded its line of low-dropout (LDO) regulators with the introduction of its first dual channel LDO, the SP6265. The feature set of this new 150mA dual channel CMOS LDO has been designed to meet the needs of space critical portable consumer applications.

Sipex's thinnest package offering

The SP6265 continues to reduce package height by offering a 0.6mm ultra- low profile package enabling designers to meet critical height requirements for today's trend towards ultra-slim consumer devices. The lower profile allows for board space reduction, package efficiency in the z-dimension, and overall system weight reduction.

Simplifying portable designs

This new device is ideal for supplying mobile processors with core and I/O voltages. The SP6265 features 2-channel independent shutdown control for maximum versatility and complex power management schemes while consuming 0.3uA of shutdown current prolonging critical battery life. The integrated dual channel design minimizes board area requirements and overall component count utilized by two separate devices. In addition, the SP6265 is available in fixed output options from 1.8V to 3.3V eliminating the need for an external resistor networks. All operations are protected against fault conditions by current limiting and over temperature protection schemes.

Pricing and availability

The SP6265 is offered in the DFN-8, as well as, the TSOT-23-6 package. Both packages are specified over -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C junction temperature range and are lead-free and RoHS compliant. The device is priced at $0.70 and $0.75 each in quantities of 1,000 units for TSOT and DFN respectively.
