Product Details

The MAX20808/MAX20808T is a dual-output, fully integrated, highly efficient, step-down DC-DC switching regulator. The regulator is able to operate from 2.7V to 16V input supplies, and each output can be regulated from 0.5V to 5.8V, delivering up to 4A of load current per output. With the MAX20808, the two outputs can be connected in parallel as a single-output, dual-phase regulator that supports up to 8A load current.

The switching frequency of the device can be configured from 500kHz to 3MHz and provides the capability of optimizing the design in terms of solution size and performance.

The MAX20808/MAX20808T utilizes fixed-frequency, current-mode control with internal compensation. The dual-switching regulators operate 180° out-of-phase. The MAX20808/MAX20808T features a selectable advanced modulation scheme (AMS) to provide improved dynamic load transient performance. The device also features selectable discontinuous current mode (DCM) operation to improve light load efficiency. Operation settings and configurable features can be selected by connecting pin-strap resistors from the PGM_ pins to ground.

The MAX20808/MAX20808T has an internal 1.8V low-dropout (LDO) output to power the gate drives (VCC) and internal circuitry (AVDD). The device also has an optional LDO input pin (LDOIN), allowing connection from a 2.5V to 5.5V bias input supply for optimized efficiency.

The MAX20808/MAX20808T integrates multiple protections including positive and negative overcurrent protection, output overvoltage protection, and overtemperature protection to ensure a robust design.

The MAX20808/MAX20808T is available in a compact 3.5mm x 4.6mm FC2QFN package that supports -40°C to +125°C junction temperature operation. The MAX20808 package has an open top, and MAX20808T package has a closed top.
