Mouser offers Maxim’s MAX17222 nanoPower boost converter
Mouser offers Maxim’s MAX17222 nanoPower boost converter: Distributor, Mouser Electronics, continues to build its new product introduction (NPI) campaign, with the MAX17222 nanoPower DC/DC step-up (boost) converter from Maxim Integrated.
The MAX17222 offers a high 95 per cent efficiency that minimises heat dissipation, and has a low quiescent current that helps extend battery life in wearables, health monitors, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and other connected designs.
The MAX17222 nanoPower DC/DC boost converter operates over an input voltage range of 0.4 to 5.5V, delivering an output voltage range of 1.8 to 5.0V with a low quiescent current down to 300-nA. True Shutdown mode boasts a current draw of just 0.5-nA to virtually stop battery drain, says Mouser, and providing long battery life and eliminating the need for external disconnect switches. The converter’s 500-mA peak inductor current limit gives designers flexibility when selecting inductor types. Another feature is that the post-start-up enable transient protection (ETP) allows the output to remain regulated for input voltages down to 400-mV, depending on load current.
Mouser also stocks Maxim’s MAX17222 evaluation kit, which features two independent circuits to evaluate both the MAX17222 and MAX17225 converters. Each circuit provides resistor-configurable output voltages from 1.8 to 5.0V in 100-mV per step. Additionally, each circuit output delivers up to 100, 225, or 425-mA, depending on the input-to-output voltage ratio.
Mouser claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Its website is continually updated and offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. Mouser.com also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.
