The ADP3153 is a highly efficient synchronous switching regu-
lator controller and a linear regulator controller. The switching
regulator controller is optimized for Pentium II and Deschutes
Processor applications where 5 V is stepped down to a digitally
controlled output voltage between 1.8 V and 3.5 V. Using a 5-bit
DAC to read a voltage identification (VID) code directly from
the processor, the ADP3153 uses a current mode constant off-
time architecture to generate its precise output voltage.
The ADP3153 drives two N-channel MOSFETS in a synchro-
nous rectified buck converter, at a maximum switching fre-
quency of 250 kHz. Using the recommended loop compensation
and guidelines, the ADP3153 provides a dc/dc converter that
meets Intel’s stringent transient specifications with a minimum
number of output capacitors and smallest footprint. Addition-
ally, the current mode architecture also provides guaranteed
short circuit protection and adjustable current limiting.
The ADP3153’s linear regulator controller drives an external
N-channel device. The output voltage is set by the ratio of the
external feedback resistors. The controller has been designed for
excellent load transient response.
