Simplify Power Supply Design
National Semiconductor Corporation has released three products in its SIMPLE SWITCHER® power module family. The LMZ-series provides an integrated solution that will save design time. The power modules provide the efficiency of a synchronous switching regulator with the simplicity of a linear regulator, eliminating the external inductor and complex layout placement challenges. The modules simplify power supply design for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), microprocessors, digital signal processors (DSPs) and other point of load (POL) conversions.
