Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA) (APEC) has announced the APE1910-HF-3, a pulse-frequency modulation (PFM) dc-dc converter with a low quiescent current of around 30µA and shutdown current less than 1µA. Available in a small RoHS/REACH-compliant halogen-free SOT-23-5 package, the APE1910-HF-3 features a wide input voltage range from 1.2V to 12V. It features a switching current limit (typical) of 350mA, a high output voltage of up to 34V. Using a PFM design, the product provides high efficiency across a broad range of load.
Comments Ralph Waggitt, President/CEO, Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA): "With a small package size and requiring only a small number of external components, the APE1910-HF-3 offers a low cost and space saving solution for step-up voltage conversion."
