SIMPLE SWITCHER® power modules

Easy to use products, powerful design tools, and expert technical support

SIMPLE SWITCHER modules integrate high-performance DC/DC switching converter technology with best-in-class packaging to provide an optimized solution. Each module in this family features a SIMPLE SWITCHER buck converter and integrated inductor in a transistor-outline (TO) package to reduce power supply design complexity. These power modules are a great choice for customers that are looking for easy-to-use solutions with minimal external components and without sacrificing quality or performance.

Easy to use power modules

SIMPLE SWITCHER modules deliver low BOM count, high power density, packaging that simplifies prototyping/design/manufacturing, best-in-class thermal performance, pin-to-pin compatibility across different load currents, and CISPR11 EMI compliance.

Powerful and intuitive design tools

All SIMPLE SWITCHER modules are fully WEBENCH-enabled, meaning schematic, layout, transient simulation, thermal modeling, and solution purchase are only a click away.

Specialized power modules

Extended temperature (EXT) family of power modules

The SIMPLE SWITCHER EXT power modules provide excellent performance in the most extreme conditions, with extended ambient temperatures guaranteed down to -55° C and shock and vibration compliance to military MIL-STD-883 standards.


High output voltage power modules

LMZ1420xH SIMPLE SWITCHER power modules have an output voltage range from 5 V to 30 V. These DC/DC power modules are ideal for intermediate rail conversions, powering fans or other types of non-traditional points of load, and for sensing applications requiring voltages below -6 V.
