iP1203 Power Block
The iP1203 is a fully optimized solution for medium current synchronous buck applications requiring up to 15A.
It includes full function PWM control, with optimized power semiconductor chipsets and associated passives,
achieving high power density. Very few external components are required to create a complete synchronous
buck power supply.
iPOWIR™ technology offers designers an innovative space-saving solution for applications requiring high
power densities. iPOWIR technology eases design for applications where component integration offers benefits
in performance and functionality. iPOWIR technology solutions are also optimized internally for layout, heat
transfer and component selection.
iP1203 Simplified Application Schematic
(See Page 18) Pin Name
Input voltage connection pins
Power Ground pins
PWM controller power supply pin. Internally generated.
Requires a 2.2µf external bypass capacitor
Soft start pin. External capacitor provides soft start. Pulling soft start pin low
will disable the output. Cannot be cycled to unlatch OVP trip
Output of the error amplifier
Inverting input of the error amplifier
Output overvoltage sense pin.
Switching frequency setting pin. For RT selection, refer to Fig.9 of the
Power Good pin. Open collector, requires external pulll-up. If function not
needed, pin can be left floating
Non inverting input of the error amplifier (reference Voltage pin). Connect a
100pF cap from this pin to PGND.
External Clock synchronization pin. Set free running frequency to 80% of
the SYNC frequency. When not in use, leave pin floating
Output overcurrent trip threshold pin
