wire current sharing or phase
delayed interleaving
 
Enables scalability for higher power

Requires only minimal external components, and no external compensation required
 
Easy to use

Capable of delivering up to 10 A
with peak efficiency greater than 96%
 
Power rating compatible
with isolated DC-DC converters
with higher efficiency

Compact 10 x10 x 2.5 mm
thermally adept SMT package
 
Saves space and lower profile;
no heat sink required
