The MAX20438 is an ultra-high-efficiency switching regulator that delivers up to 12A load current from 0.5V to 1.2V. The IC operates from 2.5V to 5.5V, making it ideal for on-board, point-of-load (PoL) and post regulation applications. The total output error is less than ±1.0% over load, line, and temperature.

The MAX20438 features adaptive on-time with a switching frequency of 2.1MHz or 4.2MHz. High-frequency operation allows for small-size, all-ceramic capacitor design.

The low-resistance, on-chip switches ensure high efficiency at heavy loads while minimizing critical inductances, making the layout a much simpler task with respect to discrete solutions.

The device features the MAXQ power architecture which provides precision transient performance and phase margin. This allows obtaining the maximum power, performance, and precision from the converter over a very wide range of configurations.

The output voltage is preset at the factory to allow customers to achieve ±1% output-voltage accuracy without using expensive 0.1% resistors. The device offers factory-programmable soft-start and RESET times.

The device includes overtemperature shutdown and overcurrent limiting. The MAX20438 is designed to operate in the -40°C to +125°C ambient temperature range.

APPLICATIONS

  • Secondary Regulator for SoC/MCU Supply
