The FAN2108 offers multiple protection features such as over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and over-temperature. It also features pre-bias startup, allowing the regulator to start-up on a pre-biased output and ensures that the output is not discharged during the soft-start cycle, protecting system ICs from damage.
Fairchild’s TinyBuck regulator is part of a family of all-in-one regulators that improve efficiency, while simplifying designs. This family includes a 3A version, the FAN2103 that offers 95 percent efficiency for graphic cards, set-top boxes, servers and point of load (POL) applications. The 6A version, the FAN2106, won the prestigious 2007 EDN China Innovation award. It also won the 2007 Electronic Design and Application World- Nikkei Electronics China (EDAW-NEC) award for the most innovative DC-DC converter product.

The FAN2108 utilizes lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and has been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020. All of Fairchild's products are designed to meet the requirements of the European Union's Directive on the restriction of the use of certain substances (RoHS).
