The ADP2503/ADP2504 are high efficiency, low quiescent current step-up/step-down dc-to-dc converters that can operate at input voltages greater than, less than, or equal to the regulated output voltage. The power switches and synchronous rectifiers are internal to minimize external part count. At high load currents, the ADP2503/ADP2504 use a current-mode, fixed frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) control scheme for optimal stability and transient response. To ensure the longest battery life in portable applications, the ADP2503/ADP2504 have an optional power save mode that reduces the switching frequency under light load conditions. For wireless and other low noise applications where variable frequency power save mode may cause interference, the logic control input sync forces fixed frequency PWM operation under all load conditions.
The ADP2503/ADP2504 can run from input voltages between 2.3 V and 5.5 V, allowing single lithium or lithium polymer cell, multiple alkaline or NiMH cells, PCMCIA, USB, and other standard power sources. The ADP2503/ADP2504 have fixed output options, or using the adjustable model, the output voltage can be programmed through an external resistor divider. Compensation is internal to minimize the number of external components.
During logic-controlled shutdown, the input is disconnected from the output and draws less than 1 μA from the input source. Operating as boost converters, the ADP2503/ADP2504 feature a true load disconnect function that isolates the load from the power source. Other key features include undervoltage lockout to prevent deep battery discharge, and soft start to prevent input current overshoot at startup.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
This product has individual evaluations boards at specific voltages or with specific features as well as the RedyKit&tm;. The RedyKit simplifies product evaluation by providing two assembled and tested evaluation boards, plus a full set of product (voltage) options for an IC regulator. All the IC options come sorted and stored in the kit with the Analog Devices part number clearly printed on each antistatic zip-top bag.
Simple device measurements such as line and load regulation, dropout, and ground current can be demonstrated with just a single voltage supply, a voltmeter, a current meter, and load resistors.
