The MAX1945R/MAX1945S high-efficiency pulse-width modulation (PWM) switching regulators deliver up to 6A of output current. The devices operate from an input supply range of 2.6V to 5.5V and provide selectable output voltages of 1.8V, 2.5V, and adjustable output voltages from 0.8V to 85% of the supply voltage. With VCC at 3.3V/5V, the input voltage can be as low as 2.25V. The MAX1945R/MAX1945S are ideal for on-board post-regulation applications. Total output voltage error is less than ±1% over load, line, and temperature.

The MAX1945R/MAX1945S operate at a selectable fixed frequency (500kHz or 1MHz) or can be synchronized to an external clock (400kHz to 1.2MHz). The high operating frequency minimizes the size of external components. The high bandwidth of the internal error amplifier provides excellent transient response. The MAX1945R/MAX1945S have internal dual N-channel MOSFETs to lower heat dissipation at heavy loads. Two MAX1945R/MAX1945Ss can operate 180 degrees out-of-phase of each other to minimize input capacitance. The devices provide output voltage margining for board-level testing. The MAX1945R provides a ±4% voltage margining. The MAX1945S provides a ±9% voltage margining.

The MAX1945R/MAX1945S are available in 28-pin TSSOP-EP packages and are specified over the -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range. An evaluation kit is available to speed designs.

Product Detail

The MAX1945 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a high-efficiency step-down switching-regulator circuit for applications requiring on-board postregulation. The circuit utilizes a MAX1945R regulator featuring ±4% voltage margining and is configured for a 1.8V output voltage. The circuit provides up to 6A of current. A 2.6V to 5.5V DC source can be utilized to power the circuit's input.

The MAX1945R IC features an internal power MOSFET switch and an internal synchronous rectifier. The MAX1945 EV kit provides connections for the SYNC input. It also provides an output to synchronize another MAX1945 EV kit clock 180 degrees out-of-phase. Pulse-width modulated (PWM) operation at 500kHz allows the use of tiny surface-mount components.
