VFQFPN8 3x3 mm HSOP8 exposed pad
The L5986 is a step down switching regulator with
3.0 A (minimum) current limited embedded power
MOSFET, so it is able to deliver up to 2.5 A
current to the load depending on the application
The input voltage can range from 2.9 V to 18 V,
while the output voltage can be set starting from
0.6 V to VIN. Having a minimum input voltage of
2.9 V, the device is suitable also for 3.3 V bus.
Requiring a minimum set of external components,
the device includes an internal 250 kHz switching
frequency oscillator that can be externally
adjusted up to 1 MHz.
The QFN and the HSOP packages with exposed
pad allow reducing the RthJA down to 60 °C/W
and 40 °C/W respectively.
