Description

The MAX20049 is a dual step-down converter IC with two low-dropout regulators (LDOs), providing a single-chip solution for automotive cameras. The two step-down converters are designed for fixed-frequency PWM operation with input voltages from 5V to 17V for MAX20049, 4V to 17V for MAX20049C, and 3.5V to 17V for MAX20049D. The dedicated high-voltage inputs allow for a flexible solution.

The IC provides voltage monitoring on all four output rails. Once an overvoltage or undervoltage is detected, power good gets pulled low. To accommodate long and inexpensive coax cables, the device has a 500mV SUP1 hysteresis. Both bucks offer very low on-time and allow operation from 17V input to 0.9V output. High-frequency operation allows for an all-ceramic capacitor design and small-size external components. The low-resistance on-chip switches ensure high efficiency while minimizing critical inductances.

Output voltages are factory set and cover various sensor imagers needing 3.3V, 3.0V, 2.9V, 2.8V, or 2.7V. The secondary supplies cover the typical 1.8V, 1.2V, 1.1V, and < 1.0V rails for the serializer and memory. The Output-Voltage Selection section covers all the voltage options for flexibility in the camera design.

Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit, and thermal shutdown with automatic recovery. The buck converters operate 180° out-of-phase from each other to minimize input current ripple.
