Synchronous Buck Controller with Constant On-Time and Valley Current Mode with Power Saving Mode
The ADP1879 is the power saving mode (PSM) version of the device and is capable of pulse skipping to maintain output regulation while achieving improved system efficiency at light loads (see the ADP1879 Power Saving Mode (PSM) section for more information).
Available in three frequency options (300 kHz, 600 kHz, and 1.0 MHz, plus the PSM option), the ADP1878/ADP1879 are well suited for a wide range of applications that require a single-input power supply range from 2.95 V to 20 V. Low voltage biasing is supplied via a 5 V internal low dropout regulator (LDO).
In addition, soft start, programmability is included to limit input in-rush current from the input supply during startup and to provide reverse current protection during precharged output conditions. The low-side current sense, current gain scheme and integration of a boost diode, along with the PSM/forced pulsewidth modulation (PWM) option, reduce the external part count and improve efficiency.
The ADP1878/ADP1879 operate over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and are available in a 14-Lead LFCSP_WD package.

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
This will create a template email that will request from us the proper blank evaluation board for that ADI part and your application's power parameters.
Note: Some parts have multiple blank boards for high/low current or for different topologies (Boost, SEPIC, SEPIC-Cuk), while other blank boards support multiple ADI parts. This is why it is important to run the design tool with your parameters before making your email request from the tool.
