1.5 A Switch-Mode Power
Supply with Linear Regulator
The 34701 provides the means to efficiently supply the Freescale
Power QUICC™ I, II, and other families of Freescale
microprocessors and DSPs. The 34701 incorporates a high-
performance switching regulator, providing the direct supply for the
microprocessor’s core, and a low dropout (LDO) linear regulator
control circuit provides the microprocessor I/O and bus voltage.
The switching regulator is a high-efficiency synchronous buck
regulator with integrated N-channel power MOSFETs to provide
protection features and to allow space-efficient, compact design.
The 34701 incorporates many advanced features; e.g., precisely
maintained up/down power sequencing, ensuring the proper
operation and protection of the CPU and power system.
