The MAX8855/MAX8855A high-efficiency, dual step-down regulators are capable of delivering up to 5A at each output. The devices operate from a 2.25V to 3.6V supply, and provide output voltages from 0.6V to 0.9 x VIN, making them ideal for on-board point-of-load applications. Total output error is less than ±1% over load, line, and temperature.
The MAX8855/MAX8855A operate in PWM mode with a switching frequency ranging from 0.5MHz to 2MHz, set by an external resistor. It can also be synchronized to an external clock in the same frequency range. Two internal switching regulators operate 180° out-of-phase to reduce the input ripple current, and consequently reduce the required input capacitance. The high operating frequency minimizes the size of external components. High efficiency, internal dual-nMOS design keeps the board cool under heavy loads. The voltage-mode control architecture and the high-bandwidth (> 15MHz typ) voltage-error amplifier allow a type III compensation scheme to be utilized to achieve fast response under both line and load transients, and also allow for ceramic output capacitors.
Programmable soft-start reduces input inrush current. Two enable inputs allow the turning on/off of each output individually, resulting in great flexibility for system-level designs. A reference input is provided to facilitate output-voltage tracking applications. The MAX8855/MAX8855A are available in a 32-pin TQFN (5mm x 5mm) package with 0.8mm max height.
