Our products include the following types of DC-DC converters:
- Linear DC-DC converters — using resistive voltage drop to regulate given output voltages, linear DC-DC converter circuits offer low quiescent current, wide input voltage, low noise, and small packages
- Switching DC-DC converters — offering higher power efficiency, easier thermal management, and transformed output voltages, switching DC-DC converter circuits include buck, boost, and buck boost DC-DC converters
- Isolated DC-DC converters – by separating the input from the output electrically and physically, isolated DC-DC converter circuits are often used to break ground loops
- Non-Isolated DC-DC converters — using the transformer to eliminate the DC path between input and output, non-isolated DC-DC converter circuits include step-up and step-down DC-DC converter ICs. Additionally, advantages of non-isolated DC-DC converters include a smaller design footprint and lower costs
- Step-up (boost) DC-DC converters — boost converter ICs are used to boost the voltage output to greater than the input while stepping down the current. Step-up DC-DC converter circuits are often used in battery power systems and photovoltaic cells
- Step-down (buck) DC-DC converters - used to reduce voltage while drawing less current from input to output, step-down DC-DC converter circuits are widely used in lower power consumption electronic devices
- High-power/high-voltage DC-DC converters – high voltage boost converter ICs feature voltages of > approx. 100 V, high power DC-DC converters deliver uncompromising performance in energy management applications
- High-power/low-voltage DC-DC converters – featuring input voltages of < approx. 30 V and output currents 40 A-1000 A, high-power-low-voltage DC-DC converter ICs deliver uncompromising performance in digital connectivity
- Low-power/low-voltage DC-DC converters – featuring voltages of < approx. 30 V and output currents < 40 A, low-power/low-voltage DC-DC converter ICs deliver uncompromising performance in digital connectivity
