The ISL65426EVAL1Z evaluation board is used to evaluate the ISL65426 high-efficiency, dual output, monolithic synchronous buck converter operating over an input voltage range of 2.375V to 5.5V. This single-chip power solution provides two output voltages, which are selectable or externally adjustable from 1V to 80% of the supply voltage while delivering up to 6A of total output current. The two PWMs are synchronized 180° out-of-phase reducing the RMS input current and ripple voltage.

The ISL65426EVAL1Z switches at a fixed frequency of 1MHz and utilizes current-mode control with integrated compensation to minimize the size and number of external components and provide excellent transient response. The internal synchronous power switches are optimized for good thermal performance, high-efficiency, and eliminate the need for an external Schottky diode.
