The MAG-PSU creates local distributed supply voltage for instrumentation or robotics in high radiation environments.
MAG-PSU is a single-phase synchronous buck converter developed to provide an efficient solution for the distribution of power in High Energy Physics experiments. As such, it has been designed for flawless functionality in a harsh radiation and magnetic field environment. The monolithic construction of MAG-PSU, with the integration of the power train and the bootstrap diode with the controller, makes the converter a space-efficient solution to provide POL regulation from a 5-12V supply rail. Its protection features include Over-Current, Over-Temperature and Input Under-Voltage to improve system-level security in the event of fault conditions. The chip temperature increase in the application can be monitored via a dedicated analog signal (PTAT).
