Analog Devices Inc. MAX77540 Dual-Phase Buck Converter

Maxim Integrated’s MAX77540 Dual-Phase Buck Converter is a high-efficiency step-down converter with two 3A switching phases.

It uses an adaptive constant on-time current-mode control architecture, and the two 3A switching phases can be configured as either one or two outputs.

Its wide input voltage range directly converts sub-1V outputs from 3-cell Li+ batteries, USB PD, and 12VDC supply rails. The output voltages are preset with resistors and are further adjustable through an I2C-compatible interface.

Programmable switching frequency, frequency tracking, spread-spectrum, and ultrasonic mode allow easier system optimization for noise-sensitive applications. Dedicated EN, POK, and FPWMB pins provide options for direct hardware control, while more programmable options, such as soft-start/stop and ramp-up/down slew-rates, are available through I2C.

With 94% peak efficiency, low quiescent current, and compact solution size, the Maxim MAX77540 is ideal for battery-powered, space-constrained equipment.
