16V, 6A, High Efficiency, Synchronous, Step-Down Converter with Adjustable Current Limit.
Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) introduced the MPQ8626, a fully integrated, high-frequency, synchronous, buck converter. According to MPS, the MPQ8626 offers a very compact solution that achieves up to 6A of output current with excellent load and line regulation over a wide input supply range. The MPQ8626 operates at high efficiency over a wide output current load range.
Typical applications for the buck converter include telecom and networking systems, server, cloud-computing, storage, base stations, general purpose point-of-load (PoL), 12V distribution power systems, high-end TV, game consoles, and graphic Cards.
An internally compensated constant-on-time (COT) control that provides fast transient response and eases loop stabilization.
With MODE configuration, the operating frequency can be set to 600kHz, 1100kHz, or 2000kHz easily, allowing the MPQ8626 frequency to remain constant regardless of the input and output voltages.
The device has an internal 1.5ms timer that controls the output voltage start-up ramp. This internal timer can be increased by adding a capacitor on TRK/REF. An open-drain power good (PGOOD) signal indicates if the output is within its nominal voltage range. PGOOD is clamped at about 0.7V with an external pull-up voltage when the input supply fails to power the MPQ8626.
Full protection features include over-current protection (OCP), over-voltage protection (OVP), under-voltage protection (UVP), and over-temperature protection (OTP).
