PWM buck converters deliver low parasitics in the power path, enabling developers to realize a peak efficiency of 98.5% making them applicable to a large range of applications in the industrial and consumer sectors
ON Semiconductor has announced the release of three new efficient mid-voltage PMV buck converters that supports a wide input voltage range of 4.5 V to 65 V. ON Semiconductor has integrated its PowerTrench MOSFET technology to create a rugged integrated solution that delivers high power density and efficiency for DC-DC applications.
Wide input voltage range and applications
The three devices support a wide input voltage range from 4.5 V to 65 V, making them applicable to a large range of applications in the industrial and Consumer sectors, from base station power supplies to Home Automation.
They are also suitable for battery management systems, as well as USB power delivery (PD) applications. It also successfully fulfils the key features developers look for in a power management solution.
The buck converters implements an exhaustive range of features to protect itself and any downstream circuits from damage. These include adjustable Over-Current protection, Thermal Shutdown, Over-Voltage protection and Short-Circuit protection.
Integration of two LDOs
The integration of two LDOs plus an on-chip Power Path switch gives designers the flexibility to power the controller from the input voltage, the buck converter output or through the PVCC pin using the Power Path.
The high level of integration means manufacturers can use the FAN6500x family to strike the right balance between power density, BoM cost, performance and flexibility. By leveraging its PowerTrench MOSFET technology.
