28V, Low IQ, Fixed 5.1V, 8A,
Synchronous Buck Converter
with 100mA LDO and LP# VOUT Scaling
The NB679A is a fully integrated, high-
frequency, synchronous, rectified, step-down,
switch-mode converter with a fixed 5.1V output
and low-power mode voltage scaling. It offers a
very compact solution to achieve an 8A
continuous output current and a 10A peak
output current over a wide input supply range
with excellent load and line regulation.
The NB679A operates at high efficiency over a
wide output current load range based on MPS
proprietary switching loss reduction technology
and internal low Ron power MOSFETs.
Adaptive constant-on-time (COT) control mode
provides fast transient response and eases loop
stabilization. The DC auto-tune loop provides
good load and line regulation.
The NB679A provides a fixed 5V LDO, which
can be used to power the external peripheries.
Full protection features include OC limit, OVP,
UVP, and thermal shutdown.
The converter requires a minimum number of
external components and is available in a
QFN-12 2mm x 3mm package.
