MAX20471

Low-Voltage Synchronous Boost Converter

Industry's Only Automotive Synchronous Boost Converter with Up to 1A of Output Current and True Shutdown and Active-Low RESET Output


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX20471, MAX20472, and MAX20473 are high-efficiency, low-voltage DC-DC converters that boost a 3.0V to 4.0V input supply to between 3.8V and 5.25V (factory configurable) at 500mA, 1A, or 2A. The boost converters achieve ±1.5% output error over load, line, and temperature ranges.

The ICs feature a 2.2MHz fixed-frequency, forced pulse-width modulation (FPWM) mode for better noise immunity and load-transient response, as well as a pulse-frequency modulation (skip) mode for increased efficiency during light-load operation. The 2.2MHz frequency operation enables the use of all-ceramic capacitors and minimizes external components. The programmable spread-spectrum frequency modulation minimizes radiated electromagnetic emissions. Integrated low RDS(ON) switches improve efficiency at heavy loads, which make the layout a much simpler task with respect to discrete solutions.

Other features of the parts include true output shutdown, soft-start ramping, overcurrent limiting, and overtemperature protection.
