The MAX20457 offers two automotive-grade synchronous buck converters with fixed frequency of either 2.1MHz or 400kHz. The two high-voltage synchronous step-down converters operate 180 degrees out of phase. The IC operates with an input voltage supply from 3.5V to 36V and can operate in dropout conditions by running at 95% duty cycle. It is intended for applications with mid- to high-power requirements that operate at a wide input voltage range such as during automotive cold-crank or engine stop-start conditions.

High switching frequency up to 2.1MHz allows small external components, reduced output ripple, and guarantees no AM band interference. The switching frequency is fixed at 400kHz or 2.1MHz. FSYNC input programmability enables three modes for optimized performance: forced fixed-frequency operation, skip mode with ultra-low quiescent current, and phase-locked synchronization to an external clock. The spread spectrum option minimizes EMI interference.

The IC features power-OK indicators and undervoltage lockout for the buck converters. Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit and thermal shutdown. The MAX20457 is specified for operation over the -40°C to +125°C automotive temperature range.

Product Detail

The AD-ACEVSECRDSET-SL is a complete Type 2 EVSE 3.6 kW charging cable solution, providing a reference design intended for evaluation and prototyping of electric vehicle (EV) charging systems.

The system includes a 3-channel isolated sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) ADC for voltage and current measurement on the single-phase power input and measurement of the relay voltage for solder contacts detection and relay state of health. Safe operation is enabled by the inclusion of a 6 mA DC / 30 mA rms RCD. Detection of overvoltage, undervoltage, overcurrent, overtemperature and EV diode presence is also available.

A MAX32655 low-power, ARM® Cortex®-M4 Microcontroller implements the logic for system control and communication with the EV over the control pilot interface. A programming and debugging interface are included. The MAX32655 Bluetooth 5.2 interface enables connectivity to external devices.

The design is accompanied by an open-source software stack and reference applications, enabling custom software development to start from a proven implementation validated to meet the applicable standards. An external programmer such as the MAX32625PICO MAXDAP Programming Adapter, or any other similar programmer supporting the SWD interface, is required to enable firmware programming and debug.

The system is designed to comply with the IEC61851 and IEC62752 standards.
