The ADP2384 is a synchronous, step-down dc-to-dc regulator
with an integrated 44 mΩ, high-side power MOSFET and
an 11.6 mΩ, synchronous rectifier MOSFET to provide a high
efficiency solution in a compact 4 mm × 4 mm LFCSP package.
This device uses a peak current mode, constant frequency pulse-
width modulation (PWM) control scheme for excellent stability
and transient response. The switching frequency of the ADP2384
can be programmed from 200 kHz to 1.4 MHz. To minimize
system noise, the synchronization function allows the switching
frequency to be synchronized to an external clock.
The ADP2384 requires minimal external components and operates
from an input voltage of 4.5 V to 20 V. The output voltage can be
adjusted from 0.6 V to 90% of the input voltage and delivers up to

from the input source when it is disabled.
This regulator targets high performance applications that require
high efficiency and design flexibility. External compensation and an
adjustable soft start function provide design flexibility. The power-
good output and precision enable input provide simple and reliable
Other key features include undervoltage lockout (UVLO),
overvoltage protection (OVP), overcurrent protection (OCP),
short-circuit protection (SCP), and thermal shutdown (TSD).
The ADP2384 operates over the −40°C to +125°C junction
temperature range and is available in a 24-lead, 4 mm × 4 mm
