Online POL design tool

18 August 2010 Design Automation

International Rectifier has launched a new online design tool that enables electrical and thermal simulation and design optimisation for the SupIRBuck family of integrated point-of-load voltage regulators.

The interactive, Web-based tool available at http://mypower.irf.com/SupIRBuck enables the rapid selection and simulation of selected SupIRBuck products. Based on a designer’s given input and output parameters, the online tool selects suitable devices for a given application. Once basic requirements are entered, the tool allows the user to capture schematics, create a reference design along with associated bill of materials, view waveforms, and perform complex thermal and application analysis.

The tool is designed and engineered to assist a variety of designers, from power experts to digital specialists with limited exposure to analog design. SupIRbuck devices featured in the tool cover the initial load currents up to 12 A, up to 21 V input voltage and output voltages as low as 0,7 V, and are supported by standard and customisable demo kits, reference designs, datasheets and electrical, mechanical and application notes.

SupIRBuck voltage regulators integrate IR’s synchronous buck control ICs and HEXFET trench technology MOSFETs in a compact 5 by 6 mm Power QFN package.
