Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Continues to Expand its Fifth Generation EZBuck™ Family

18V Synchronous DC/DC Buck Regulators with Adaptable Light Load
Capability

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alpha
and Omega Semiconductor Limited
(AOS) (Nasdaq: AOSL), a designer,
developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors
and power ICs, today introduced AOZ6662DI-01
and AOZ6663DI-01,
high efficiency, simple-to-use synchronous buck regulators. The
AOZ6662DI-01 and AOZ6663DI-01 are both available in a thermally enhanced
DFN3x3 exposed pad package, delivering an output current of 2A and 3A,
respectively. The new devices offer a low on-resistant power stage,
allowing cooler power conversion for a variety of consumer electronics
application such as LCD TVs, set-top boxes, as well as DVD players and
recorders.


The low on-resistance of the internal power MOSFETs in these devices
allows higher efficiency and less heat generation. They have over 90
percent efficiency at full load operation and maintain at 87 percent
efficiency while in 10mA light load operation. When operating in low
output current conditions, the device will run in a proprietary pulse
energy mode (PEM) to obtain high efficiency. Under heavy load
steady-state conditions, the device will operate in a fixed frequency
and Continuous-Conduction Mode (CCM).

The small standby current combined with a thermally enhanced package
achieves better efficiency and thermal performance over the previous
generation solution and leading competitor.

“Today’s consumer electronics products are built with features that
require flexibility to meet a broad range of applications. Design
engineers are looking for dc-dc converters that offer high light load
efficiency at specific voltage ranges,” said Kenny Hu, Power IC
Marketing Manager at AOS. “The AOZ6662DI-01 and AOZ6663DI-01 meet these
design challenges with adaptable light load capability.”
