Product Details

The Himalaya series of voltage regulator ICs, power modules, and chargers enable cooler, smaller, and simpler power-supply solutions. The MAX17643 high-efficiency, high-voltage, Himalaya synchronous step-down DC-DC converter with integrated MOSFETs operates over a 4.5V to 60V input. The converter can deliver up to 2A and generates output voltages from 0.9V up to (0.9 x VIN)V. The feedback (FB) voltage is accurate to within ±.4% over -40°C to +125°C. Built-in compensation across the output- voltage range eliminates the need for external components. The MAX17643 features peak-current-mode control architecture and operates in fixed frequency forced PWM mode. The current-limit settings of the MAX17643 allow the device to supply load-current peaks up to 2A. This allows the device to support pulsed load applications such as communication modules with minimal output-voltage droop. The MAX17643 offers a low minimum on-time that allows high switching frequencies and a smaller solution size.

The device is available in a 12-pin (3mm × 3mm) TDFN package. Simulation models are available.
