EM2130, 30 A PowerSoC DC-DC Step-Down Converters

Intel offers the EM2130 single output digital PowerSoC synchronous step-down converter with advanced digital control techniques

Image of Intel's EM2130, 30 A PowerSoC DC-DC Step-Down ConvertersIntel's Enpirion® EM2130 is a fully integrated high-efficiency 30 A DC-DC step down digital PowerSoC. The device delivers an outstanding combination of power density and conversion efficiency. The EM2130 integrates power switches, inductor, gate drive, controller, and compensation in a small 11 x 17 mm QFN package. The EM2130 is PMBus version 1.2 compatible, which helps to configure the device settings including output voltage, fault thresholds, and warnings depending on application needs.

With full integration of all DC-DC components into the package, the EM2130 is designed, characterized, and qualified as a complete power system, resulting in a low-risk solution with low failure in time (FIT) rates. The EM2130 will dramatically improve the system reliability versus discrete power supply solutions.

Excellent thermal performance and custom designed magnetics enhance efficiency and enable the EM2130 to deliver 30 A continuous operating current across the full industrial operating temperature range. The proprietary digital power conversion loop of the controller in the EM2130 is designed to meet the precise voltage and fast transient requirements of core rails of high-performance FPGAs, ASICs, DSPs, and processors within a total solution size of 360 mm².
