MAX17007B

Dual and Combinable QPWM Graphics Core Controllers for Notebook Computers

The Two Switched-Mode Power Supplies Can Be Combined to Operate in a Two-Phase Single-Output Mode


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX17007A/MAX17007B/MAX17008 are dual Quick-PWM™ step-down controllers intended for general power generation in battery-powered systems. The two switched-mode power supplies (SMPSs) can also be combined to operate in a two-phase single-output mode. Constant on-time Quick-PWM operation provides fast response to load transients and handles wide input/output (I/O) voltage ratios with ease, while maintaining a relatively constant switching frequency. The switching frequency can be individually adjusted between 200kHz and 600kHz with external resistors. Differential output current sensing allows output sense-resistor sensing for an accurate current limit, or lossless inductor direct-current resistance (DCR) current sensing for lower power dissipation while maintaining 0.7% output accuracy. Overvoltage (MAX17007A/MAX17007B only), undervoltage protection, and accurate user-selectable current limits (15mV, 30mV, 45mV, and 60mV) ensure robust operations.

The SMPS outputs can operate in skip mode or in ultrasonic mode for improved light-load efficiency. The ultrasonic mode eliminates audible noises by maintaining a minimum switching frequency of 25kHz in pulse-skipping mode.

The output voltage of SMPS1 can be dynamically adjusted by changing the voltage at the REFIN1 pin. The device includes a 0.5% accurate reference output that can be used to set the REFIN1 voltage. An external 5V bias supply is required to power the internal circuitry and its gate drivers.

Independent on/off controls with well-defined logic thresholds and independent open-drain power-good outputs provide flexible system configurations. To prevent current surges at startup, the internal voltage target is slowly ramped up from zero to the final target with a slew rate of 1.3mV/µs for SMPS1 at CSL1 and 0.65mV/µs for SMPS2 at FB2. To prevent the output from ringing off below ground in shutdown, the internal voltage target is ramped down from its previous value to zero with the same respective slew rates. Integrated bootstrap switches eliminate the need for external bootstrap diodes.

The MAX17007A/MAX17007B/MAX17008 are available in a space-saving, 28-pin, 4mm x 4mm, TQFN package with an exposed backside pad. The MAX17007B improves crosstalk performance over the MAX17007A.
