Himalaya Power Modules
Himalaya power modules integrate most of the components needed for a power supply—synchronous switching regulator IC, inductor, resistors, and capacitors—into a single, compact package. The result is an efficient and compact fully integrated solution that complies with EMI requirements and makes power-supply design as easy as possible. Designers can migrate, as needed, between module and IC to tradeoff cost, size, and ease of use.
The high-efficiency, low-profile, wide input voltage, step-down DC-DC power modules are available in a highly integrated system-in-package (SiP) or ultra-small micro system level IC (uSLIC™) package. These ready-made, reliable, easy-to-use modules save PCB space and reduce design time for popular 5V, 12V, 24V, 36V, 48V, and 60V voltage rails.
Himalaya power modules enable quick time to market with industry-standard manufacturing and reflow processes. Himalaya uSLIC power modules leverage advanced packaging technology to shrink the power supply solution size by 2.25 times. A select group of Himalaya power modules are certified with compliance to the CISPR 22 electromagnetic interference (EMI) standard to help improve the first-time success rate for EMI certification of your end products.

4V to 42V, 100mA, Compact Step-Down Power ModuleMAXM17532
The MAXM17532 is a step-down DC-DC power module built in a compact uSLICTM package. The MAXM17532 integrates a controller, MOSFETs, an inductor, as well as the compensation components. The device operates from an input voltage of 4.0V to 42V, supports an adjustable output voltage from 0.9V to 5.5V, and supplies up to 100mA of load current. The high level of integration significantly reduces design complexity, manufacturing risks and offers a true “plug and play” power supply solution, hence reducing the time-to-market.
