The Intel Enpirion EN6360QA is AEC-Q100 automotive grade qualified to operate at -40°C to +105°C operating temperature range. This high-efficiency 8A DC-DC step-down converter with integrated inductor achieves a total solution footprint of only 190 mm2 while showcasing excellent power efficiency over the entire operating temperature range.
A complete power system-on-a chip (PowerSoC), the EN6360QA integrates power switches, inductor, gate drive, controller, and loop compensation in a tiny 8 mm x 11 mm package. The small footprint also enables the use of this part where space is at a premium, but where compromise in efficiency and power supply noise is not permitted.
Unlike discrete power products, this point-of-load power solution gives the designer a complete power system that is fully simulated, characterized, validated, and production qualified. The EN6360QA utilizes an external resistor divider to set the output voltage to any user-defined value.
This power management IC is an excellent choice for low-power applications that require a small solution footprint, while delivering superb efficiency, exceptional thermal performance, low noise, high reliability, and ease of use.
