MAX20751 PMBus Implementation Guide

Abstract: The MAX20751 is a PMBus compliant multiphase masterIC with extensive status and parameter monitoring, capableof driving up to four Smart Slave integrated power devices.Utilizing Maxim's Smart Slave ICs, the MAX20751 providesa high-density, flexible solution that can be tailored to arange of power loads used in communication equipment.Proprietary coupled inductors are recommended to reducethe effective inductor value without excessive ripple current.This results in improved transient response and a reductionin the number of output capacitors required.
