Original Press Release:
Seiko Instruments Announces S-8550/8551 Series
STEP-DOWN, BUILT-IN FET, SYNCHRONOUS RECTIFICATION, PWM CONTROL SWITCHING REGULATORS (DC/DC Converter ICs)
The S-8550/8551 Series is a CMOS synchronous rectification step-down switching regulator which mainly consists of a reference voltage circuit, an oscillator, an error amplifier, a phase compensation circuit, a PWM controller, an under voltage lockout circuit (UVLO), a current limit circuit, and a power MOS FET.
The oscillation frequency is high at 1.2 MHz, so a high efficiency, large output current, step-down switching regulator can be achieved by using small external parts.
The built-in synchronous rectification circuit makes achieving high efficiency easier compared with conventional step-down switching regulators. A ceramic capacitor can be used as an output capacitor. High-density mounting is supported by adopting a small SOT-23-5 package.
The S-8550 and S-8551 Series are offered according to different pin configuration.
Mobile devices, such as mobile phones, Bluetooth devices, wireless devices, digital audio players, digital still cameras, portable DVD players, and portable CD players
