ROHM's BU9000XGWZ High-Efficiency Step-Down Switching Regulators are high efficiency 6MHz synchronous step-down switching regulators with ultra low current PFM mode. They provide up to 1.0A load current and an input voltage range from 3.0V to 5.5V, optimized for battery powered portable applications. BU9000XGWZ has a mode control pin that allows the user to select Forced PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) mode or PFM (Pulse Frequency Modulation) mode and PWM auto change mode which can be utilized to save power during operation at light load current.
ROHM's N-Channel SiC Power MOSFETs have no tail current during switching, resulting in faster operation and reduced switching loss. In addition, the low ON resistance and compact chip size ensure low capacitance and gate charge. SiC exhibits minimal ON resistance increases and provides greater package miniaturization, and energy savings than standard silicon devices, in which the ON resistance can more than double with increased temperature. Typical applications include solar inverters, DC/DC converters, switch mode power supplies, induction heating, and motor drives.
ROHM Semiconductor Ultra Compact MOSFETs & Bipolar Transistors have the smallest transistor package on the market which is optimized for thin, compact portable devices. The VML0806 case type measures just 0.8mm×0.6mm, with a height of only 0.36mm. As portable devices, such as smartphones and digital cameras get smaller and more sophisticated, thinner, more compact components are required. Until now, problems related to internal element miniaturization, bonding stability, package process accuracy, and surface mount technology limit the smallest conventional transistors to the 1006 size (1.0mm×0.6mm, t=0.37mm). ROHM was able to overcome these challenges by utilizing a smaller element and high-precision package process technology, resulting in an unprecedentedly compact form factor.
ROHM Semiconductor's SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes have a total capacitive charge (Qc) that is small, which reduces switching loss, and enables high-speed switching operations. In addition, unlike silicon based fast recovery diodes where the trr increases along with temperature, SiC devices maintain constant characteristics, resulting in better performance. Ideal for use as key devices in a variety of applications including inverters and chargers for EV and solar power conditioners.
