Low Duty Cycle, 600 mA, 3 MHz Synchronous Step-Down DC-to-DC Converter
Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADP2102 is a synchronous step-down dc-to-dc converter that converts a 2.7 V to 5.5 V unregulated input voltage to a lower regulated output voltage with up to 95% efficiency and 1% accuracy. The low duty cycle capability of the ADP2102 is ideal for USB applications or 5 V systems that power up submicron subvolt processor cores. Its 3 MHz typical operating frequency and excel-lent transient response allow the use of small, low cost 1 μH inductors and 2.2 μF ceramic capacitors. At medium-to-high load currents, it uses a current mode, pseudofixed frequency pulse-width modulation to extend battery life. To ensure the longest battery life in portable applications, the ADP2102 has a power save mode (PSM) that reduces the switching frequency under light load conditions to significantly reduce quiescent current.

The ADP2102 is available in both fixed and adjustable output voltage options with 600 mA maximum output current. The preset output voltage options voltage are 1.875 V, 1.8 V, 1.5 V, 1.375 V, 1.25 V, 1.2 V, 1.0 V, and 0.8 V. The adjustable voltage option is available from 0.8 V to 3.3 V. The ADP2102 requires only three external components and consumes 0.01 μA in shutdown mode.

The ADP2102 is available in an 8-lead LFCSP package and is specified for the −40 °C to +85 °C temperature range.

Product Details

The ADP2102 evaluation board is a complete step-down, dc-to-dc converter solution using the ADP2102 step-down, dc-to-dc converter. It provides a ±1% accurate (±2% over all conditions) regulated output voltage with load currents up to 600 mA. It comes in two versions: fixed output with output voltages ranging from 0.8 V to 1.875 V and adjustable output with output voltages ranging from 0.8 V to 3.3 V.

Product Details

In order to get the correct unpopulated evaluation board with an appropriate Bill of Materials and Schematic, you need to use the button for "Request Evaluation Board" from within the design tool. Make sure the design tool is in a state that matches your desired power requirements.

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.
