Flex Power Modules’ BMR473 digital PoL regulator now available as SMD horizontal-mount version

• Digital PoL regulator
• High efficiency up to 96.2%
• 40 A continuous current
• 6 – 15 V input
• 0.6 – 5 V output

The BMR473 digital non-isolated PoL converter from Flex Power Modules is now available in a surface-mount format with solder bump terminations. This new mechanical version is also suitable for reverse mounting during reflow-soldering. Dimensioned just 19 x 13 x 7.5 mm, the device operates from 6 – 15 V input and provides a fully regulated output adjustable from 0.6 – 5 V at up to 40 A. Up to four units can be paralleled with synchronization and phase-spreading for a maximum of 160 A output. Efficiency of the single-phase BMR473 is high, peaking at 96.2% at 12 Vin and 5 Vout at full load, with minimal temperature derating required due to excellent thermal management and a 125°C maximum hot spot temperature.

The BMR473 includes remote control, a power good signal and configuration and monitoring via PMBus, and is compatible with the ‘Flex Power Designer’ GUI. Protection features include input under- and over-voltage, over-temperature and output over-voltage, over-current and short-circuit. Tight regulation, low output noise and fast load transient response round up the class-leading performance figures of the BMR473, along with over 30 Mhrs MTBF according to Telcordia SR-332 standard.

Olle Hellgren, Director Product Management and Marketing at Flex Power Modules comments “This new surface-mount version of our BMR473 PoL regulator will be a welcome addition to customers in telecom and datacom who will see the benefits of automated placement and a low profile”.

How MediaTek Optimizes SI Design with Cadence Optimality Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

In the era of 5G/6G communication, signal integrity (SI) design considerations are important in high-speed interface design. MediaTek’s design process usually relies on human intuition, but with Cadence’s Optimality Intelligent System Explorer and Clarity 3D Solver, they’ve increased design productivity by 75X. The Optimality Explorer’s AI technology not only improves productivity, but also provides helpful insights and answers.
