The ADP2370/ADP2371 are high efficiency, low quiescent current, 800 mA buck (step-down) dc-to-dc converters in small 8-lead, 3 mm × 3 mm LFCSP (QFN) packages. The total solution requires only three tiny external components.
The buck regulator uses a proprietary high speed current mode, constant frequency PWM control scheme for excellent stability and transient response. The need for an external rectifier is eliminated by using a high efficiency synchronous rectifier architecture.
To ensure the longest battery life in portable applications, the ADP2370/ADP2371 employ a power saving variable frequency mode that reduces the switching frequency under light load conditions. The ADP2370/ADP2371 operate from input voltages of 3.2 V to 15 V allowing the use of multiple alkaline/NiMH, lithium cells, or other standard power sources.
The ADP2370/ADP2371 offer multiple options for setting the operational frequency. The ADP2370/ADP2371 can be synchronized to a 600 kHz to 1.2 MHz external clock or it can be forced to operate at 600 kHz or 1.2 MHz via the FSEL pin. The ADP2370/ ADP2371 can be forced to operate in PWM mode (FPWM) when noise considerations are more important than efficiency.
A power-good output is available to indicate when the output voltage is below 92% of its nominal value.
The ADP2371 is identical to the ADP2370 except that the ADP2371 includes the addition of an integrated switched resistor, quick output discharge function (QOD) that automatically discharges the output when the device is disabled.
Both devices include an internal power switch and a synchronous rectifier for minimal external part count and high efficiency. The ADP2370/ADP2371 also include internal soft start and internal compensation for ease of use.
During a logic controlled shutdown, the input is disconnected from the output and the regulator draws less than 1.2 μA from the input source. Other key features include undervoltage lockout to prevent deep battery discharge and soft start to prevent input overcurrent at startup. Short-circuit protection and thermal overload protection circuits prevent damage under adverse conditions.
The ADP2370/ADP2371 each use one 0805 capacitor, one 1206 capacitor, and one 4 mm × 4 mm inductor. The total solution size is about 53 mm2 resulting in a very small footprint solution to meet a variety of portable applications.

Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
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.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The ADP2371 is identical to the ADP2370 except for a quick output discharge feature. Therefore, the evaluation board can be used for both products. However, the RedyKit only contains ADP2370 chips. Use the sample ordering process to get ADP2371 chips if that is what your design requires.
This product has individual evaluations boards at specific voltages or with specific features as well as the RedyKit™. 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.
Features & Benefits
- Two fully assembled and tested evaluation boards per kit
- Full set of IC voltage options in each kit
- 3 samples of each IC voltage option packed in separate antistatic bags
- Kit allows the user to quickly evaluate all IC voltage options
- Only need to order one kit per product family
Tools & Simulations
LTspice® is a powerful, fast and free simulation software, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of analog circuits.
Models for the following parts are available in LTspice:
ADIsimPE, which is powered by SIMetrix/SIMPLIS, is a circuit simulation suite optimized for the design and development of analog and mixed signal circuits. SIMetrix mode is ideal for the simulation of general non-switching circuits. It provides full Pspice compatibility for use with industry-standard SPICE models. SIMPLIS (SIMulation Piecewise-Linear System) mode simulates the operation of switching circuits with vastly improved robustness, speed, and accuracy compared to standard SPICE. It is particularly useful for switching power supply, PLLs, and ADC/DAC applications.
ADIsimPower is the fastest and most accurate Power Management design tool. ADI's Design Center lets you design your power circuits in three easy steps.
Microsoft Excel download tool from ADIsimPower to generate a power supply design complete with a schematic, bill of materials, and performance specifications.
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.
