Automotive High-Current Step-Down Converter with USB-C Dedicated Charging Port

Industry's Highest Integrated Automotive USB Type-C Charge Enumerator with Buck Converter



The MAX20459 combines a 3A high-efficiency, automo- tive-grade, step-down converter, a USB Type-C DFP con- troller, and automatic BC1.2 DCP, Apple®, and Samsung® dedicated charger-detection circuitry. The device also includes a USB load current-sense amplifier and configurable feedback-adjustment circuit designed to provide automatic USB voltage compensation. The device limits the USB load current using both a fixed internal peak-cur- rent threshold and a user-configurable external current- sense USB load threshold.

The MAX20459 is optimized for high-frequency operation and includes programmable frequency selection from 310kHz to 2.2MHz, allowing optimization of efficiency, noise, and board space based on application require- ments. The fully synchronous DC-DC converter integrates high-side and low-side MOSFETs along with an external SYNC input/output, and can be configured for spread- spectrum operation. Additionally, thermal foldback is im- plemented to avoid excessive heating of the module while charging at high ambient temperature.

TThe MAX20459 allows flexible configuration and ad- vanced diagnostic options for both standalone and super- vised applications. The device can operate as a true one- chip solution that offers advanced fault autorecovery and can be programmed using external programming resistors and/or internal I2C registers.

The MAX20459 is available in a small 5mm x 5mm 32-pin TQFN package and is designed to minimize required ex- ternal components and layout area..
