Torex launches enhanced version of its Micro DC/DC converter

With an integrated fully shielded Inductor, the XCL201/02 family is designed to minimise EMC emissions and radiated noise, while maximising efficiency. According to the company the XCL201/02 can deliver a very stable output with low peak to peak ripple (<10mV), making it suitable for RF applications. 

Able to deliver output currents up to 400mA, the XCL201/02 utilises a 1.2MHz switching frequency to minimise losses and increase efficiency.  The XCL201 series offers PWM control, whereas the XCL202 series applies automatic PWM/PFM switching control, allowing fast response, low ripple and high efficiency over the full range of output loads (from light load to heavy load).

Measuring only 2.5mm×2.0mm, h=1.0mm the XCL201/02 needs only two capacitors connected externally to generate a stable power supply. The operating voltage range is from 2.0V to 6.0V and the output voltage is internally set in a range from 0.8V to 4.0V in increments of 0.05V.

The XCL201/02 series include a 0.25ms high speed soft-start for quick turn-on, a chip enable pin to turn the IC on and off and a CL discharge function to quickly discharge the output capacitor when the IC is turned off.

Other features include a built-in UVLO (Under Voltage Lock Out) circuit whose threshold is 1.4V(typ); The XCL201/02 will stop operating when the input voltage decreases below this threshold, and will resume normal operation when the input voltage rises above this threshold.

In addition, the XCL201/02 features a current limiter that not only stops the IC when the output current is too high, but also permits the IC to automatically resume normal operation (following a soft-start procedure) as soon as the over-current condition disappears.

The XCL201/02 series is available now with samples and populated EVB ready for use upon request.
