Intersil's Latest Digital Power Module Delivers 17 Amps

Intersil ZL9117M

ZL9117M supports telemetry via the PMBus, may be paralleled for higher current

Intersil Corporation introduced the ZL9117M, the latest member of Intersil's expanding power module family. The ZL9117M is a fully-encapsulated digital power module capable of delivering 17A output current.

Intersil - ZL9117M

The ZL9117M is configured using the industry's easiest-to-use, point-and-click PowerNavigator™ GUI. Built-in auto-compensation algorithms also optimize transient response over varying load conditions. The industry standard PMBus interface supports remote performance monitoring and even re-programming of installed systems around the world.

A low profile 15mm x 15mm QFN package provides an industry-leading power density of 1275W/in3. Very high efficiency, combined with a low thermal resistance of only 11 degrees C/W, eliminates the need for a heat sink or air flow in most applications. Higher current demands are easily supported by paralleling modules with automatic current sharing.
