EMI-compliant Himalaya solutions for industrial and general-purpose applications

EMI-compliant, Himalaya step-down switching converters and power modules from Maxim Integrated Products comply with CISPR 22 and EN 55022 and suit general-purpose applications, including industrial, building automation, factory automation, communications, and consumer electronics.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) compliance is a mandatory, critical design challenge for end equipment manufacturers. Customers often fail EMI compliance after a design is completed because of the power supply IC, sub-optimal layout, filtering techniques, and component selection.

Failing EMI at this late stage requires customers to tweak their design or even start all over again. This can lead to long design cycles and jeopardise go-to-market strategy, as well as having a negative impact on cost.

These new step-down switching converters and power modules are designed with EMI challenges in mind. By reducing or even eliminating redesign, Maxim says it can help customers to achieve faster time to market.

These products, which are part of the Himalaya portfolio comply with CISPR 22 and EN 55022 Class A and B conducted and radiated EMC emission standards, as well as JESD22-B103/B104/B111 drop, shock, and vibration standards.

“These optimised devices along with layout guidelines provided by Maxim give designers increased confidence and peace of mind that their end products will pass EMI compliance,” said Kevin Anderson, senior analyst for power ICs at IHS Markit.

Viral Vaidya, executive business manager, industrial and healthcare business unit at Maxim Integrated, said: “By using these step-down regulators and modules in their designs, customers can stay focused on innovation to bring differentiated solutions to the market.”
