Voltage regulator IC with positive and negative voltage output

I need to save space on PCB and have to convert voltage from +48 to +9, -9 and virtual ground. Is there a single IC that could do that?

• At what power output? – BullBoyShoes Mar 29 '11 at 11:49
• the current is really small, several miliamps – miceuz Mar 30 '11 at 11:06

You could do it, for just a few milliamps, with two zeners and a resistor.

If you did it this way you could probably get away with a 1206 SMD resistor (0.5W) and a dual series SOT23 zener, in total smaller than most linear regulator packages. Here is a possible circuit (output is 9.1V per rail):

You need a DC/DC converter. I suggest browsing the following websites where you should find something suitable

• Those sites don't seem to offer components (question seeks to save space), let alone small, low-power, board-level modules. Also, given some fairly specific requirements it's a very vague answer. – Nick T May 3 '11 at 1:57
• The question actually asks for a single IC that will do it, not components - should I downvote the other answer? The links will give you a solution, if you take the time to look through properly – BullBoyShoes May 3 '11 at 11:52
• Thomas' solution was compact, even if it wasn't a single IC per se. Since it answers the spirit of the question, if not the letter, it probably doesn't need a downvote. In any case, this discussion should be a comment to that answer. – Kevin Vermeer May 3 '11 at 13:29
• @Nick T - Those sites certainly do offer components and low-power board-level modules. I found compatible modules from Mornsun, XPPower, and Murata. I agree that the answer could do more to flesh out the search process, but there's no need to downvote it. – Kevin Vermeer May 3 '11 at 13:36
• FWIW I`m not into spoon feeding people answers, a pointer in the right direction will certainly help in the long run :-) – BullBoyShoes May 3 '11 at 20:14
