The ADP2116 is a versatile, synchronous, step-down switching
regulator that satisfies a wide range of customer point-of-load
requirements. The two PWM channels can be configured to deliver
independent outputs at 3 A and 3 A (or at 3 A and 2 A) or can be
configured as a single interleaved output capable of delivering 6 A.
The two PWM channels are 180° phase shifted to reduce input
ripple current and input capacitance.
The ADP2116 provides high efficiency and can operate at
switching frequencies of up to 2 MHz. At light loads, the ADP2116
can be set to operate in pulse skip mode for higher efficiency or
in forced PWM mode for noise sensitive applications.
The ADP2116 is designed with an optimized slew rate to reduce
EMI emissions, allowing the device to power sensitive, high perfor-
mance signal chain circuits. The switching frequency can be set
to 300 kHz, 600 kHz, or 1.2 MHz, or it can be synchronized to an
external clock that minimizes the system noise. The bidirectional

synchronization pin is also configurable as a 90° out-of-phase
output clock, providing the possibility for a stackable
multiphase power solution.
The ADP2116 input voltage range is from 2.75 V to 5.5 V and can
convert to a fixed output of 0.8 V, 1.2 V, 1.5 V, 1.8 V, 2.5 V, or 3.3 V
that can be set independently for each channel using external
resistors. If a resistor divider is used, the output voltage can be
set as low as 0.6 V. The ADP2116 operates over the −40°C to
+125°C junction temperature range.
