The MAX20404/MAX20405/MAX20406/MAX20406E ICs are tiny, low EMI emission, synchronous Silent Switcher® buck converters with integrated high-side and low-side switches. The ICs are designed to deliver up to 6A with wide input voltages range from 3V to 36V. Voltage quality can be monitored by observing the PGOOD signal. The MAX20404/MAX20405/MAX20406/MAX20406E can operate in dropout by running at 99% duty cycle making it ideal for automotive and industrial applications.

The MAX20404/MAX20405/MAX20406/MAX20406E offer programmable or fixed output voltages of 5V and 3.3V. Frequency is internally fixed at 2.1MHz (or 400KHz or 3MHz) which allows for small external components, reduced output ripple, and guarantees no AM interference. MAX20404/MAX20405/MAX20406/MAX20406E automatically enter skip mode at light loads with ultra-low quiescent current of 10µA at no load. This family of products (including the MAX20408/10) offers a pin-to-pin compatible offering from 4A to 10A in a single-phase configuration, and up to 20A in a dual-phase configuration. This devices have also been optimized for dual-phase operation with very high current sharing accuracy. These devices can be ordered with spread-spectrum frequency modulation designed to minimize EMI-radiated emissions due to the modulation frequency.

The MAX20404/MAX20405/MAX20406/MAX20406E are available in a small 3.5mm x 3.75mm 17-pin FC2QFN package and uses very few external components.

Product Detail

The MAX20406 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX20406 automotive 2.1MHz synchronous buck converter with 10µA quiescent current. The standard EV kit PCB comes with a MAX20406AFOB/ VY+ (2.1MHz, 3.3V) installed, as well as various test points and jumpers for evaluation. The EV kit output voltage is fixed and easily configured with minimum component changes. The default EV kit is designed to deliver up to 6A with input voltage 3V to 36V. Output voltage quality can be monitored by observing the PGOOD signal. The MAX20406 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX20404 and MAX20405.
