Intersil Introduces ISL8216M High Voltage Power Module

April 16, 2014 - Intersil announced the ISL8216M 80 Volt, 4 Amp non-isolated DC/DC step-down power module for use high voltage infrastructure and industrial applications. The ISL8216M power module provides a complete power supply in a package that can be used across multiple applications from telecom and network infrastructure to factory test equipment with minimal design effort, speeding time to market.
The ISL8216M power module supports a wide input voltage range from 10V up to 80V with an adjustable 2.5V to 30V output range, making it a flexible solution for 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V applications, including high voltage embedded board controllers. Using a single module, designers can optimize the power efficiency of their designs with minimal cost and decreased time to market.
The ISL8216M is a turnkey power module solution that requires only five external components, streamlining power supply design and reducing design and manufacturing risk. The ISL8216M power module is packaged in a rugged thermally enhanced 15mm x 15mm x 3.6mm over-molded High-Density Array (HDA) Package, which permits full load operation without a heat sink or fans, preserving valuable board space. The ISL8216M’s full suite of protection features includes over-current, over- / under-voltage and over-temperature shutdown, further enhancing the reliability of power systems.
