3A Synchronous Buck Converter In 2x2 DFN Package
ISL80030, ISL80030A, ISL80031, ISL80031A
The ISL80030, ISL80030A, ISL80031 and ISL80031A are highly
efficient, monolithic, synchronous step-down DC/DC converters
that can deliver up to 3A of continuous output current from a 2.7V
to 5.5V input supply. They use peak current mode control
architecture to allow very low duty cycle operation. They operate
at either a 1MHz or 2MHz switching frequency, thereby providing
superior transient response and allowing for the use of small
inductors. They have excellent stability.
The ISL80030, ISL80030A, ISL80031 and ISL80031A integrate
very low rDS(ON) MOSFETs in order to maximize efficiency. In
addition, since the high-side MOSFET is a PMOS, the need for a
Boot capacitor is eliminated, thereby reducing external
component count. They can operate at 100% duty cycle.
The ISL80031, ISL80031A configured for PFM discontinuous
conduction operation, provides high efficiency by reducing
switching losses at light loads.
ISL80030, ISL80030A configured for PWM pulse width
modulation operation, provides a fast transient response,
which helps reduce the output noise and RF interference.
