A micromodule device resembles a surface mount IC; however, they include all the necessary support components that would normally be used to construct a power conversion circuit. This includes a DC/DC controller, MOSFET dice, magnetics, capacitors and resistors and so on, all mounted on a thermally efficient laminate substrate. They are then encapsulated using a plastic mold cap. The result was a complete power supply that can be simply adhered to a printed circuit board. Read about the evolution of this device.
