Industry's Smallest High Power Step Down Converter with High Efficiency


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX20004/MAX20006/MAX20008 are small, synchronous, automotive buck converter devices with integrated high-side and low-side MOSFETs. The device family can deliver up to 8A with input voltages from 3.5V to 36V, while using only 25µA quiescent current at no load. Voltage quality can be monitored by observing the active-low RESET signal. The devices can operate in dropout by running at 98% duty cycle, making them ideal for automotive applications.

The devices offer fixed output voltages of 5V and 3.3V, along with the ability to program the output voltage between 1V and 10V. Frequency is resistor programmable from 220kHz to 2.2MHz. The devices offer a forced fixed-frequency PWM mode (FPWM) and skip mode with ultra-low quiescent current. The devices can be factory programmed to enable spread-spectrum switching to reduce EMI.

The MAX20004/MAX20006/MAX20008 are available in a small, 3.5mm x 3.75mm, 17-pin FC2QFN package and use very few external components.
