December 5, 2012 - Supplied in 4 x 4 mm, 24-lead LFCSP, ADP2384 (4 A) and ADP2386 (6 A) 20 V DC/DC regulators respectively integrate 44 and 11 mΩ on-resistance power MOSFETs, accept 4.5–20 V input, and offer 0.6–18 V output range with 1% voltage accuracy. Current limit protection allows use of smaller inductors, and switching frequency can be synchronized to external clock. Operating over -40 to +125°C junction temperature range, 168 mm˛ solutions also provide precision-enable input and power-good output.

Press release date: November 26, 2012

ADP2384/86 dc-to-dc regulators integrate ultralow on-resistance (44/11 mΩ) power MOSFETs, making them the most efficient 4-A and 6-A solutions for powering processor cores in compact 168mm2 solution size.

NORWOOD, Mass.--Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, today introduced the ADP2384 4-A and ADP2386 6-A, 20-V dc-to-dc regulators featuring ultra-high conversion efficiency of greater than 95 percent in a compact 168mm2 solution size. The ADP2384/86 regulators offer a wide input-voltage range of 4.5 V to 20 V and an output range from as low as 0.6 V up to 18 V with 1 percent voltage accuracy. The accurate current limit protection allows the use of smaller inductors, which helps to minimize board space. The ADP2384/86 regulators provide a precision-enable input and a power-good output to allow a simple and reliable start-up sequence.

The ADP2384/86 offer excellent stability and transient response to minimize the output voltage ripple. The switching frequency of the regulators can be synchronized to an external clock to eliminate beat frequencies between regulators. The ADP2384/86 operate over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and are available in compact 4 mm × 4 mm 24-lead LFCSP packages.
