Automotive grade, High efficiency, dual channel (5 A per channel), step down DC-DC converter (Buck)

A team of engineers is ready to answer your questions

The DA9131-A is a high efficiency, automotive grade, dual channel, step down DC-DC (Buck) converter with integrated switching FET's delivering 5 A per channel.  The device can operate at efficiency levels above 90%, reducing the thermal design challenges of powering high current rails in a wide range of automotive systems such as Navigation systems, Infotainment, Telematics, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), or any automotive high performance processing system requiring efficient, high current, power delivery.

The DA9131-A device has an input voltage range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V and an output voltage range of 0.3 V to 1.9 V, making it suitable for a wide variety of low voltage systems.  The DA9131-A only requires two small 0.10 µH inductors, delivering a highly optimized BoM and footprint.  Output voltages above 1.9 V are supported with an external resistor divider.  

The DA9131-A device is part of the Dialog family of Flexible, Scalable, Reliable Automotive System and Sub PMICs, enabling an “Exact Fit” power solution.  It is available in a 3.3mm x 4.8mm 24-pin FC-QFN wettable flank package. An Industrial/commercial grade version is also available (DA9131).
