Description

The MAX17528 comprises 1-phase Quick-PWM™ step-down VID power-supply controllers for Intel® notebook CPUs. The Quick-PWM control provides instantaneous response to fast-load current steps. Active voltage positioning reduces power dissipation and bulk output capacitance requirements and allows ideal positioning compensation for tantalum, polymer, or ceramic bulk output capacitors.

The MAX17528 is intended for two different notebook CPU/GPU core applications: either bucking down the battery directly to create the core voltage, or bucking down the +5V system supply. The single-stage conversion method allows this device to directly step down high-voltage batteries for the highest possible efficiency. Alternatively, 2-stage conversion (stepping down the +5V system supply instead of the battery) at higher switching frequency provides the minimum possible physical size.

A slew-rate controller allows controlled transitions between VID codes. A thermistor-based temperature sensor provides programmable thermal protection. A current monitor provides an analog output current proportional to the processor load current.

The MAX17528 implements both the Intel IMVP-6.5 CPU core specifications (active-low CLKEN pullup to 3.3V), as well as the Intel GMCH graphics core specifications (active-low CLKEN = GND). The MAX17528 is available in a 32-pin, 5mm x 5mm TQFN package.
