Dual 5 A, 20 V Synchronous Step-Down Regulator with Integrated High-Side MOSFET
The ADP2325 is a full featured, dual output, step-down dc-to-dc regulator based on a current mode architecture. The ADP2325 integrates two high-side power MOSFETs and two low-side drivers for the external N-channel MOSFETs. The two pulse-width modulation (PWM) channels can be configured to deliver dual 5 A outputs or a parallel-to-single 10 A output. The regulator operates from input voltages of 4.5 V to 20 V, and the output voltage can be as low as 0.6 V.
The switching frequency can be programmed between 250 kHz and 1.2 MHz, or synchronized to an external clock to minimize interference in multirail applications. The dual PWM channels run 180° out of phase, thereby reducing input current ripple as well as reducing the size of the input capacitor.
The bidirectional synchronization pin can be programmed at a 60°, 90°, or 120° phase shift, providing the possibility for a stackable multiphase power solution.
The ADP2325 can be set to operate in pulse frequency modulation (PFM) mode at a light load for higher efficiency or in forced PWM for noise sensitive applications. External compensation and soft start provide design flexibility. Independent enable inputs and power-good outputs provide reliable power sequencing.
To enhance system reliability, the device includes undervoltage lockout (UVLO), overvoltage protection (OVP), overcurrent protection, and thermal shutdown.
The ADP2325 operates over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and is available in a 32-lead LFCSP_WQ 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.
The ADP2325 evaluation board, ADP2325-EVALZ, is a complete, dual, 5 A step-down regulator solution that allows users to evaluate the performance of the ADP2325 with a near ideal printed circuit board (PCB) layout.
The two pulse-width modulation (PWM) channels can be configured to deliver dual, 5 A outputs or a parallel-to-single, 10 A output. The switching frequency can be programmed between 250 kHz and 1.2 MHz, or it can be synchronized to an external clock with a programmed 60°, 90°, or 120° phase shift, which provides the possibility for a stackable multiphase power solution.
The outputs of the ADP2325 evaluation board are preset to 1.2 V and 3.3 V for Channel 1 and Channel 2, respectively. With the PWM mode selected, the switching frequency is set to 500 kHz. Different output voltage settings and configurations can be achieved by changing appropriate passive components or jumper settings. The ambient temperature operating range is −40°C to +85°C.
Full details on the ADP2325 dual regulator are provided in the ADP2325 data sheet, available from Analog Devices, Inc., which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
