Smallest Internal Switch Dual Step-down for GBICs , xDSL Modems & USB Powered Devices


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX1970/MAX1971/MAX1972 dual-output current-mode PWM buck regulators operate from 2.6V to 5.5V input and deliver a minimum of 750mA on each output. The MAX1970 and MAX1972 operate at a fixed 1.4MHz (MAX1971 operates at 700kHz) to reduce output inductor and capacitor size and cost. Switching the regulators 180° out-of-phase also reduces the input capacitor size and cost. Ceramic capacitors can be used for input and output.

The output voltages are programmable from 1.2V to VIN using external feedback resistors, or can be preset to 1.8V or 3.3V for output 1 and 1.5V or 2.5V for output 2. When one output is higher than 1.2V, the second can be configured down to sub-1V levels. Output accuracy is better than ±1% over variations in load, line, and temperature. Internal soft-start reduces inrush current during startup.

All devices feature power-on reset (active-low POR). The MAX1971 includes a reset input (RSI), which forces active-low POR low for 175ms after RSI goes low. The MAX1970 and MAX1972 include an open-drain power-fail output (PFO) that monitors input voltage and goes high when the input falls below 3.94V. For USB-powered xDSL modems, this output can be used to detect USB power failure. A minimum switching frequency of 1.2MHz ensures operation outside the xDSL band.
