APW7178A is a 1.5MHz high efficiency monolithic syn-
chronous buck regulator. Design with current mode
scheme, the APW7178A is stable with ceramic output
capacitor. Input voltage from 2.7V to 6.0V makes the
APW7178A ideally suited for single Li-Ion battery pow-
ered applications. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout
operation, extending battery life in portable electrical
devices. The internally fixed 1.5MHz operating frequency
allows the using of small surface mount inductors and
capacitors. The synchronous switches included inside
increase the efficiency and eliminate the need of an ex-
ternal Schottky diode.
The APW7178A is available in TDFN2x2-6 packages.
Simplified Application Circuit
R1 ≤ 1MΩ is recommended
R2 ≤ 200KΩ is recommended
Place C1 closed VIN/GND. Without via hole is recommended.
