The Future of Analog IC Technology
16V, 12A, Synchronous Step-Down
Converter with Adjustable Current Limit,
Programmable Frequency, and Voltage Tracking
The MPQ8633A is a fully integrated, high-
frequency, synchronous buck converter. It
offers a very compact solution to achieve up to
12A output current over a wide input supply
range with excellent load and line regulation.
The MPQ8633A operates at high efficiency
over a wide output current load range.
The MPQ8633A adopts internally compensated
constant-on-time (COT) control mode that
provides fast transient response and eases loop
The operating frequency is set easily to 600kHz,
800kHz, or 1000kHz with the MODE
configuration, allowing the MPQ8633A
frequency to remain constant regardless of the
The output voltage start-up ramp is controlled
by an internal 1ms timer. It can be increased by
adding a capacitor on TRK/REF. An open-drain
power good(PGOOD) signal indicates the
output is within its nominal voltage range. The
PGOOD is clamped to around 0.7V with
external pull-up voltage when the input supply
fails to power the MPQ8633A.
Fully integrated protection features include over-
current protection (OCP), over-voltage protection
(OVP), under-voltage protection (UVP), and over-
temperature protection (OTP).
The MPQ8633A requires a minimum number of
readily available, standard, external components
and is available in a QFN 3mm x 4mm package.
