Altera PowerSoC DC-DC Step-down Converter Delivers Industry-leading Power Density, Performance and Reliability

Altera, now a part of Intel Corporation, has expanded its Enpirion® power products portfolio with a 6A PowerSoC DC-DC step-down converter that is a full-featured, highly integrated, and fully tested PowerSoC with integrated inductor. The new PowerSoC (EN6362QI) is the first in a new generation of low-VIN (input voltage) power products that offer industry-leading power density while improving performance in the areas of conversion efficiency, output voltage accuracy, load transient response, and output voltage ripple. These features help system designers meet stringent system power requirements and significantly reduce costs while accelerating time-to-market. The PowerSoC is ideal for powering the Altera Cyclone® and MAX® families of FPGAs and can optimize power usage in a variety of systems requiring a tiny, accurate, high-efficiency power source.
