20 V, 6 A, Synchronous Step-Down DC-to-DC Regulator
The ADP2386 is a synchronous step-down, dc-to-dc regulator with an integrated 44 mΩ, high-side power MOSFET and an 11 mΩ, synchronous rectifier MOSFET to provide a high efficiency solution in a compact 4 mm × 4 mm LFCSP package. This device uses a peak current mode, constant frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) control scheme for excellent stability and transient response. The switching frequency of the ADP2386 can be programmed between 200 kHz to 1.4 MHz. To minimize system noise, the synchronization function allows the switching frequency to be synchronized to an external clock.
The ADP2386 requires minimal external components and operates from an input voltage of 4.5 V to 20 V. The output voltage can be adjusted from 0.6 V to 90% of the input voltage and delivers up to 6 A of continuous current. Each IC draws less than 110 μA current from the input source when it is disabled.
This regulator targets high performance applications that require high efficiency and design flexibility. External compensation and an adjustable soft start function provide design flexibility. The power-good output and precision enable input provide simple and reliable power sequencing.
Other key features include undervoltage lockout (UVLO), overvoltage protection (OVP), overcurrent protection (OCP), short-circuit protection (SCP) and thermal shutdown (TSD).
The ADP2386 operates over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and is available in a 24-lead, 4 mm × 4 mm LFCSP 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 switching frequency can be programmed between 200 kHz and 1.4 MHz, or it can be synchronized to an external clock with a 180° phase shift, which provides the possibility for a stackable multiphase power solution.
The output of the ADP2384/ADP2386 evaluation board is preset to 3.3 V and the switching frequency is set to 600 kHz. Different output voltage settings can be achieved by changing appropriate passive components. The ambient temperature operating range is −40°C to +85°C.
Full details on the ADP2384 and ADP2386 regulators are provided in the ADP2384 and ADP2386 data sheets, 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.
