36V, 3A Synchronous Buck Regulator with Frequency
General Description
The LM20333A is a full featured synchronous buck regulator
capable of delivering up to 3A of load current. The current
mode control loop is externally compensated with only two
components, offering both high performance and ease of use.
The device is optimized to work over the input voltage range
of 4.5V to 36V making it well suited for high voltage systems.
The device features internal Over Voltage Protection (OVP)
and Over Current Protection (OCP) circuits for increased sys-
tem reliability. A precision Enable pin and integrated UVLO
allows the turn on of the device to be tightly controlled and
sequenced. Startup inrush currents are limited by both an in-
ternally fixed and externally adjustable soft-start circuit. Fault
detection and supply sequencing are possible with the inte-
grated power good (PGOOD) circuit.
The LM20333A is designed to work well in multi-rail power
supply architectures. The output voltage of the device can be
configured to track a higher voltage rail using the SS/TRK pin.
If the output of the LM20333A is pre-biased at startup it will
not sink current to pull the output low until the internal soft-
start ramp exceeds the voltage at the feedback pin.
The switching frequency of the LM20333A can be synchro-
nized to an external clock by use of the SYNC pin. The SYNC
pin is capable of synchronizing to input signals ranging from
250 kHz to 1.5 MHz.
The LM20333A is offered in an exposed pad 20-pin eTSSOP
package that can be soldered to the PCB, eliminating the
need for bulky heatsinks.

Pin Descriptions
Application Information
Soft-Start or Tracking control input
An internal 4.5 µA current source charges an external capacitor to set
the soft-start rate. The PWM can track to an external voltage ramp with
a low impedance source. If left open, an internal 1 ms SS ramp is
Feedback input to the error amplifier
from the regulated output
This pin is connected to the inverting input of the internal
transconductance error amplifier. An 800 mV reference is internally
connected to the non-inverting input of the error amplifier.
Power good output signal
Open drain output indicating the output voltage is regulating within
tolerance. A pull-up resistor of 10 kto 100 kis recommended if this
function is used.
Output of the internal error amplifier and The loop compensation network should be connected between the
input to the Pulse Width Modulator
COMP pin and the AGND pin.
Input supply voltage
Nominal operating range: 4.5V to 36V.
Switch pin

Boost input for bootstrap capacitor
An internal diode from VCC to BOOT charges an external capacitor
required from SW to BOOT to power the Control MOSFET gate driver.

capacitor is required. The VCC pin is an output only.
Enable or UVLO input
An external voltage divider can be used to set the line undervoltage
lockout threshold. If the EN pin is left unconnected, a 2 µA pull-up
current source pulls the EN pin high to enable the regulator.
