MAX1718

Notebook CPU Step-Down Controller for Intel Mobile Voltage Positioning (IMVP-II)


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX1718 step-down controller is intended for core CPU DC-DC converters in notebook computers. It features a dynamically adjustable output, ultra-fast transient response, high DC accuracy, and high efficiency needed for leading-edge CPU core power supplies. Maxim's proprietary Quick-PWM™ quick-response, constant-on-time PWM control scheme handles wide input/output voltage ratios with ease and provides 100ns "instant-on" response to load transients while maintaining a relatively constant switching frequency.

The output voltage can be dynamically adjusted through the 5-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) over a 0.6V to 1.75V range. The MAX1718 has an internal multiplexer that accepts three unique 5-bit VID DAC codes corresponding to Performance, Battery, and Suspend modes. Precision slew-rate control provides "just-in-time" arrival at the new DAC setting, minimizing surge currents to and from the battery.

The internal DAC of the MAX1718B is synchronized to the slew-rate clock for improved operation under aggressive power management of newer chipsets and operating systems that can make incomplete mode transitions.

A pair of complementary offset control inputs allows easy compensation for IR drops in PC board traces or creation of a voltage-positioned power supply. Voltage-positioning modifies the load-transient response to reduce output capacitor requirements and total system power dissipation.

Single-stage buck conversion allows these devices to directly step down high-voltage batteries for the highest possible efficiency. Alternatively, two-stage conversion (stepping down the 5V system supply instead of the battery) at a higher switching frequency allows the minimum possible physical size.

The MAX1718 is available in a 28-pin QSOP package.
