MUNICH, Germany – June 20, 2018 – Speed time to market and significantly reduce design cycles with EMI-compliant, Himalaya step-down switching converters and power modules from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM). These solutions, which comply with CISPR 22 and EN 55022, are ideal for general-purpose applications, including industrial, building automation, factory automation, communications, and consumer electronics.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) compliance is a mandatory, critical design challenge for end equipment manufacturers. Customers often fail EMI compliance after a design is completed because of the power supply IC, sub-optimal layout, filtering techniques, and component selection. Failing EMI at this late stage requires customers to tweak their design or even start all over again from the beginning. Not only does this lead to long design cycles and jeopardize go-to-market (GTM) strategy, but it also negatively impacts cost.
Maxim’s EMI-compliant, step-down switching converters and power modules are designed with EMI challenges in mind. By reducing or even eliminating redesign, Maxim enables a path to first-time success for customers to achieve faster time to market. These products, which are part of the Himalaya portfolio, avoid cost overruns and enable customers to keep both their GTM schedules and revenue goals on target. They comply with CISPR 22 and EN 55022 Class A and B conducted and radiated EMC emission standards, as well as JESD22-B103/B104/B111 drop, shock, and vibration standards.
