Triple Charge-Pump TFT LCD DC-DC Converter

Industry's-First All Charge Pump Triple Output Regulator Designed For TFT LCD Applications

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX1747 triple charge-pump DC-DC converter provides the regulated voltages required by active matrix thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) in a low-profile TSSOP package. One high-power and two low-power charge pumps convert the +2.7V to +4.5V input supply voltage into three independent output voltages.

The primary high-power charge pump generates an output voltage (VOUT) between 4.5V and 5.5V that is regulated within ±1%. The low-power BiCMOS control circuitry and the low on-resistance (RON) power MOSFETs maximize efficiency. The adjustable switching frequency (200kHz to 2MHz) provides fast transient response and allows the use of small low-profile ceramic capacitors.

The dual low-power charge pumps independently regulate one positive output (VPOS) and one negative output (VNEG). These additional outputs use external diode and capacitor multiplier stages (as many stages as required) to regulate output voltages up to +35V and -35V.

The constant switching frequency and a proprietary regulation algorithm minimize output ripple and capacitor sizes for all three charge pumps. The MAX1747 is available in the ultra-thin TSSOP package (1.1mm max height).
