POL Converter

January 27, 2003 9:47 am | Product Releases | Comments

The DDR12 is a dual-output non-isolated point-of-load (POL) converter for double data rate (DDR) memory. The 2.5 V VDDQ output can deliver up to 25 A, while the 1.25 V VTT output can deliver up to 8 A; both voltages are trimmable from 90% to 110% of their normal rate. Designed for operation from a nominal 12 V supply rail, the DDR12 features a wide input range that is capable of accommodating any voltage from 10....
