Description

The Himalaya series of voltage regulator ICs, power modules, and chargers enable cooler, smaller, and simpler power supply solutions. The MAX17503/MAX17503S high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronously rectified step-down converter with dual integrated MOSFETs operates over a 4.5V to 60V input. It delivers up to 2.5A and 0.9V to 90%VIN output voltage. Built-in compensation across the output voltage range eliminates the need for external components. The feedback (FB) regulation accuracy over -40°C to +125°C is ±1.1%. The device is available in a compact (4mm x 4mm) TQFN-EP lead(Pb)-free package with an exposed pad. Simulation models are available.

The device features a peak-current-mode control architecture with a MODE feature that can be used to operate the device in pulse-width modulation (PWM), pulse-frequency modulation (PFM), or discontinuous-conduction mode (DCM) control schemes. PWM operation provides constant frequency operation at all loads, and is useful in applications sensitive to switching frequency. PFM operation disables negative inductor current and additionally skips pulses at light loads for high efficiency. DCM features constant frequency operation down to lighter loads than PFM mode, by not skipping pulses, but only disabling negative inductor current at light loads. DCM operation offers efficiency performance that lies between PWM and PFM modes.The MAX17503S offers a lower minimum on-time that allows for higher switching frequencies and a smaller solution size.

A programmable soft-start feature allows users to reduce input inrush current. The device also incorporates an output enable/input undervoltage lockout pin (EN/UVLO) that allows the user to turn on the part at the desired input-voltage level. An open-drain active-low RESET pin provides a delayed power-good signal to the system upon achieving successful regulation of the output voltage.
