Programmable Frequency Synchronous Buck PWM Controller
The RT9232A is a single-phase synchronous buck PWM
DC-DC converter controller designed to drive twoN-Channel
MOSFET. It provides a highly accurate, programmable
output voltage precisely regulated to low voltage
requirement with an internal 0.8V ± 1% reference.
The RT9232A uses an external compensated, single
feedback loop voltage mode PWM control for fast transient
response. An oscillator with Programmable frequency
(50kHz to 800kHz) reduces the external inductor and
capacitor component size for saving PCB board area.
The RT9232A provides fast transient response to satisfy
high current output applications (up to 25A) while
minimizing external components. It is suitable for high-
performance graphic processors, DDR and VTT power.
The RT9232A integrates complete protect functions such
as Soft Start, Output Enable, UVLO(under-voltage lockout)
into a small 14-pin package.
