The MAX8556/MAX8557 low-dropout linear regulators operate from input voltages as low as 1.425V and are able to deliver up to 4A of continuous output current with a typical dropout voltage of only 100mV. The output voltage is adjustable from 0.5V to VIN - 0.2V.

Designed with an internal p-channel MOSFET pass transistor, the MAX8556/MAX8557 maintain a low 800µA typical supply current, independent of the load current and dropout voltage. Using a p-channel MOSFET eliminates the need for an additional external supply or a noisy internal charge pump. Other features include a logic-controlled shutdown mode, built-in soft-start, short-circuit protection with foldback current limit, and thermal-overload protection. The MAX8556 features a POK output that transitions high when the regulator output is within ±10% of its nominal output voltage. The MAX8557 offers a power-on reset output that transitions high 140ms after the output has achieved 90% of its nominal output voltage.

The MAX8556/MAX8557 are available in a 16-pin thin QFN 5mm x 5mm package with exposed paddle.

  • Product Detail

    The MAX8556 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board demonstrating the MAX8556 low-dropout (LDO) regulator. The EV kit comes assembled with a MAX8556ETE circuit that steps down a 1.425V to 3.6V input voltage range to a 1.2V output capable of sourcing up to 4A (limited by power dissipation). The MAX8556 features a POK output that goes high impedance once the output is within ±10% of its regulation value. The device utilizes an internal p-channel MOSFET for reduced dropout and quiescent current. In addition, the p-channel MOSFET eliminates the need for an external bias or noisy charge pump. The MAX8556 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX8557 with no component changes.
