Description

The MAX15014–MAX15017 combine a step-down DC-DC converter and a 50mA, low-quiescent-current low-dropout (LDO) regulator. The LDO regulator is ideal for powering always-on circuitry. The DC-DC converter input voltage range is 4.5V to 40V for the MAX15015/MAX15016, and 7.5V to 40V for the MAX15014/MAX15017.

The DC-DC converter output is adjustable from 1.26V to 32V and can deliver up to 1A of load current. These devices utilize a feed-forward voltage-mode control scheme for good noise immunity in the high-voltage switching environment and offer external compensation allowing for maximum flexibility with a wide selection of inductor values and capacitor types. The switching frequency is internally fixed at 135kHz and 500kHz, depending on the version chosen. Moreover, the switching frequency can be synchronized to an external clock signal through the SYNC input. Light load efficiency is improved by automatically switching to a pulse-skip mode. The soft-start time is adjustable with an external capacitor. The DC-DC converter can be disabled independent of the LDO, thus reducing the quiescent current to 47µA (typ).

The LDO linear regulators operate from 5V to 40V and deliver a guaranteed 50mA load current. The devices feature a preset output voltage of 5V (MAX1501_A) or 3.3V (MAX1501_B). Alternatively, the output voltage can be adjusted from 1.5V to 11V by using an external resistive divider. The LDO section also features an active-low RESET output with adjustable timeout period. Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit, hiccup-mode output short-circuit protection, and thermal shutdown. All devices are available in a space-saving, high-power (2.86W), 36-pin TQFN package and are rated for operation over the -40°C to +125°C automotive temperature range.
