The ISL8216M power module supports a wide input voltage range from 10V up to 80V with an adjustable 2.5V to 30V output range, making it a flexible solution for 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V applications, including high voltage embedded board controllers. Using a single module, designers can optimize the power efficiency of their designs with minimal cost and decreased time to market.

The ISL8216M is a turnkey power module solution that requires only five external components, streamlining power supply design and reducing design and manufacturing risk. The ISL8216M power module is packaged in a rugged thermally enhanced 15mm x 15mm x 3.6mm over-molded High-Density Array (HDA) Package, which permits full load operation without a heat sink or fans, preserving valuable board space. The ISL8216M's full suite of protection features includes over-current, over- / under-voltage and over-temperature shutdown, further enhancing the reliability of power systems.

"Intersil is a partner for infrastructure equipment makers worldwide that rely on our power module technology to improve the efficiency of their platforms," said Mark Downing, senior vice president of infrastructure and industrial power products at Intersil. "This latest addition to our DC/DC power portfolio is one of many recently introduced solutions for infrastructure and industrial equipment. The ISL8216M 80V power module breaks new ground for Intersil, expanding our portfolio with a simple and compact high voltage solution."
