ABLIC Inc. (hereinafter “ABLIC”), a semiconductor manufacturer, today launched the S-85M0A Series of ultra-high efficiency step-down switching regulators for wearable and IoT devices.
The IC in the step-down switching regulator repeatedly turns a switch on and off. The resulting charges generated in the coil are stored in a capacitor and used to convert the battery voltage. It converts the 3.6V battery voltage (from a lithium-ion battery) to the proper voltage (1.8V or 2.5V) for mobile devices such as a smart phone.
The S-85M0A Series of ultra-high efficiency step-down switching regulators is housed in the WLP-6L, the industry’s most compact package (1.25*0.79*t0.55mm), and achieves an ultra-low current consumption of 260nA, the industry’s top-class current consumption. It reduces the footprint of the mounting area and the surrounding components by 52% compared to our previous product.
(*) Based on our research as of July 2018.
