AiT Semiconductor Inc.
1.5MHz, 700mA Synchronous
Step-Down Converter with Low Quiescent Current
The A7116 is a high efficiency monolithic
synchronous buck regulator using a constant
frequency, current mode architecture.
The A7116 is available in an adjustable version and
fixed output voltages, such as 1.2V, 1.8V, etc.
Supply current with no load is 40uA and drops to
<1uA in shutdown. The 2.5V to 6.5V input voltage
range makes the A7116 ideally suited for single
Li-Ion, two to four AA battery-powered applications.
100% duty cycle provides low dropout operation,
extending battery life in portable systems. In power
saving mode, 40uA quiescent current is very
suitable for DSP/MCU in standby operation; and in
PWM mode, low output ripple voltage is good
enough for noise sensitive applications. The two
modes can be automatically switched according to
the load current.
High Efficiency: Up to 96%
1.5MHz Constant Switching Frequency
700mA Output Current at VIN=3.6V
Integrated Main switch and synchronous rectifier.
No Schottky Diode Required
2.5V to 6.5V Input Voltage Range
Output Voltage as Low as 0.6V
100% Duty Cycle in Dropout
Quiescent Current: 40µA(input < 4.2V)
Slope Compensated Current Mode Control for
Excellent Line and Load Transient Response
Short Circuit Protection
<1uA Shutdown Current
Available in SOT25 package
Switching frequency is internally set at 1.5MHz,
allowing the use of small surface mount inductors
and capacitors. The internal synchronous switch
increases efficiency and eliminates the need for an
external Schottky diode. Low output voltages are
easily supported with the 0.6V feedback SOT
