NEW PRODUCT – MPM3610 5V Buck Converter Breakout – 21V In 5V Out at 1.2A


This little buck converter based on the MPM3610 is a marvel, taking up to 21V input and providing a 5V output with up to 1.2A current. It’s great for supplying power to popular 5V voltage circuits from a range of battery or power options.  This chip provides up to 1.2 Amp load current across the entire input voltage range of 6V to 21V. The high voltage range is what sets this buck converter apart from most!

Great for your portable project, we made this “pin compatible” with the LM1117-5.0V TO-220 chip so you can swap it in for better performance (90-95% efficiency!) There’s also an ENable pin, tie it low to shut down the output completely.

The Adafruit MPM3610 Breakout runs at 2-MHz fixed-frequency in PWM mode – the fully integrated inductor design is efficient and very small!

Comes with a fully assembled and tested breakout board.  We also include header to plug it into a breadboard.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
