Farnell, the leading multi-channel distributor of electronic and industrial components has announced it is now stocking International Rectifier’s Gen 2.1 SupIRBuck™ point-of-load (PoL) voltage regulators.
The new family of high efficiency products is offered with a range of input voltages from 1.5 V to 16 V and is ideal for providing power management solutions in a wide variety of applications where minimising power consumption is of importance. To assist in the adoption of SupIRBuck Gen 2.1 PoL voltage regulators, Farnell will also stock product evaluation kits that can simplify development and help customers shorten time-to-market for their new designs. Online design tools are hosted on both the International Rectifier website at mypower.irf.com/SupIRBuck/ and on Farnell’s online element14 technology portal and eCommunity, which provides further valuable support.
“With the drive to minimise power consumption in new product designs, high efficiency power management solutions have taken on new importance,” said Richard Curtin, Farnell’s Segment Manager for Semiconductors Passives and Optoelectronics. “At the same time, simplifying the design process to shorten time-to-market giving OEMs a competitive edge is also crucial. With the products and support encompassed in this agreement with International Rectifier we hope to satisfy both of these needs comprehensively.”
“In addition to continuously improving and expanding the SupIRBuck product line in accordance and ahead of market trends and customer needs, we are committed to providing best-in-class design support to further establish SupIRBuck as the primary choice for performance, size and cost optimized power management designs for a broad range of embedded POL applications,” said Goran Stojcic, executive director, POL group, IR’s Enterprise Power Business Unit.
