Himalaya uSLIC™ DC-DC Power Modules

Maxim’s Himalaya uSLIC DC-DC power modules provide a wide input voltage range with small solution size

Image of Maxim Himalaya uSLIC DC-DC Power ModuleMaxim’s Himalaya uSLIC family has higher voltages for small industrial and consumer applications. Designers of compact products requiring a wide range of input voltages for factory automation, healthcare, communications, and consumer applications can now tap into four new micro-system-level IC (“uSLIC”) modules from Maxim.

The MAXM17552, MAXM15064, MAXM17900, and MAXM17903 step-down DC-DC power modules join Maxim’s extensive portfolio of Himalaya power solutions, providing the widest input voltage range (4 V to 60 V) with the smallest solution sizes.


  • Wide input voltage range in a small size: currently the industry’s broadest input voltage range (4 V to 60 V) in the smallest size (2.6 mm x 3.0 mm x 1.5 mm), 2.25 times smaller than other solutions

  • Ease of use: one of the toughest design challenges for inexperienced designers is to block AC while allowing DC to flow. Himalaya uSLICs have an integrated shielded inductor, allowing designers to build a power supply in just a few hours.

  • Robust and compliant with electromagnetic interference standards: compliant to CISPR 22 (EN 5022) Class B EMI, eliminating the need for power supply redesigns; JEDEC certified to withstand drop, shock, and vibration

  • 4 mA to 20 mA current-loop powered sensors

  • LDO replacement

  • HVAC and building control

  • Battery-powered equipment
