Description

The Himalaya series of voltage regulator ICs, power modules, and chargers enable cooler, smaller, and simpler power-supply solutions. The MAX17552/ MAX17552A/MAX17552B high-efficiency, high-voltage, Himalaya synchronous step-down DC-DC converters with integrated MOSFETs operate over a 4V to 60V input voltage range.. The converters can deliver output current up to 100mA at output voltages of 0.8V to 0.9 x VIN. The output voltage is accurate to within ±1.75% over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range.

The devices employ a peak-current-mode control architecture with a MODE pin that can be used to operate the device in pulse-width modulation (PWM) or pulse-frequency modulation (PFM) control schemes. PWM operation provides constant frequency operation at all loads and is useful in applications sensitive to variable switching frequency. PFM operation disables negative inductor current and additionally skips pulses at light loads for high efficiency. The converters consume only 22µA of no-load supply current in PFM mode. The low-resistance, on-chip MOSFETs ensure high efficiency at full load and simplify PCB layout.

The devices offer programmable switching frequency to optimize solution size and efficiency. Programmable softstart allows the user to reduce the inrush currents. During overload, the MAX17552/MAX17552B implements a hysteretic cycle-by-cycle peak-current-limit protection scheme, while the MAX17552A implements a HICCUP-type overload protection scheme to protect the inductor and the internal FETs. An EN/UVLO pin allows the user to turn on/off the device at the desired input-voltage level. An open-drainactive-low RESET pin allows output-voltage monitoring. The devices operate over the -40°C to +125°C industrial temperature range and is available in a compact 10-pin (3mm x 2mm) TTDFN/TDFN-CU and 10-pin (3mm x 3mm) µMAX® packages. Simulation models are available.
