The Intel® Enpirion® EN6382QI, a scalable 8A high-efficiency DC-DC step-down converter with integrated inductor, delivers an outstanding combination of power density and conversion efficiency. The EN6382QI integrates power switches, inductor, gate drive, controller, and compensation in a small 8 x 8 mm QFN package. The estimated total solution size is 160 mm2.
The EN6382QI is pin compatible with the 6A EN6362QI. This gives designers the flexibility to optimize for cost, if they find they can get by with a 6A solution, without having to change the PCB. Excellent conversion efficiency enables the EN6382QI to deliver 8A continuous operating current across the full industrial operating temperature range.
Because of its high level of integration, the EN6382QI is a power supply system that is designed, characterized, and qualified as a system resulting in a low-risk solution with industry best failure in time (FIT) rates. The EN6382QI will dramatically improve the system reliability versus discrete power supply solutions.
