The ADP5301 is a high efficiency, ultralow quiescent current step-down regulator that draws only a 180 nA quiescent current to regulate the output at no load.
The ADP5301 runs from an input startup voltage range of 2.15 V to 6.50 V, allowing the use of multiple alkaline/NiMH, Li-Ion cells, or other power sources. The output voltage is selectable from 0.8 V to 5.0 V by an external VID resistor and factory fuse. The total solution requires only four tiny external components.
The ADP5301 can operate between hysteresis mode and PWM mode via the SYNC/MODE pin. The regulator in hysteresis mode achieves excellent efficiency at a power of less than 1 mW and provides up to 50 mA of output current. The regulator in PWM mode produces a lower output ripple and supplies up to 500 mA of output current. The flexible configuration capability during operation of the device enables very efficient power management to meet both the longest battery life and low system noise requirements.
The ADP5301 contains a VOUTOK flag, which monitors the output voltage and runs at a 2 MHz switching frequency in PWM mode. SYNC/MODE can synchronize to an external clock from 1.5 MHz to 2.5 MHz.
Other key features in the ADP5301 include separate enabling, quick output discharge (QOD), and safety features such as overcurrent protection (OCP), thermal shutdown (TSD), and input undervoltage lockout (UVLO).
The ADP5301 is available in a 9-ball, 1.65 mm × 1.87 mm WLCSP rated for a −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The ADP5301 is an ultralow power, synchronous step-down dc-to-dc regulator with a load switch in a 9-ball WLFCSP package. The ADP5301 runs from input voltages of 2.15 V to 6.50 V and requires minimal external components to provide a high efficiency solution with integrated power switch, synchronous rectifier, and internal compensation.
The ADP5301-EVALZ evaluation board provides an easy way to evaluate the device. This user guide describes how to quickly set up the board to collect performance data.
Complete information about the ADP5301 is available in the ADP5301 data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation board.
