A Product Line of
4A, 2MHZ HIGH PERFORMANCE SYNCHRONOUS BUCK CONVERTER
The AP3440 is a current mode, PWM synchronous buck (step-down)
DC-DC converter, capable of driving a 4A load with high efficiency,
excellent line and load regulation.
The device integrates two N-channel power MOSFETs with low on-
resistance. Current mode control provides fast transient response and
cycle-by-cycle current limit.
The switching frequency of AP3440 can be programmable from
200kHz to 2MHz, which allows small-sized components, such as
capacitors and inductors. A standard series of inductors from several
different manufacturers are available. This feature greatly simplifies
the design of switch-mode power supplies.
Under voltage lockout is internally set at 2.6V, but can be increased
by programming the threshold with a resistor network on the enable
pin. The output voltage startup ramp is controlled by the soft-start pin.
An open drain power good signal indicates the output is within 93% to
107% of its nominal voltage.
The AP3440 is available in U-QFN3030-16 package.
