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”.

Chipageddon: What's Happening, Why It's Happening and When Will It End

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Digi

Semiconductors are an integral part of our design lives, but supply chain issues continue to upset our design processes. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Ronald Singh from Digi and Amelia Dalton investigate the variety of reasons behind today’s semiconductor supply chain woes. They also take a closer look at how a system-on-module approach could help alleviate some of these issues and how you can navigate these challenges for your next design.
