MAX17536

4.5V to 60V, 4A, High-Efficiency, Synchronous Step-Down DC-DC Converter with Internal Compensation

Industry's First 60V, 4A Internal FET Synchronous Buck Converter


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX17536 high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous step-down DC-DC converter with integrated high-side MOSFET operates over a 4.5V to 60V input. The converter can deliver up to 4A and generates output voltages from 0.9V up to 0.9 x VIN. The feedback (FB) voltage is accurate to within ±1.4% over -40°C to 125°C.

The MAX17536 uses peak current-mode control. The device can be operated in the pulse-width modulation (PWM), pulse-frequency modulation (PFM), and discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) control schemes.

The device is available in a 20-pin (5mm × 5mm) Thin QFN (TQFN) package. Simulation models are available.
