Overview

Description

The ISL85003 and ISL85003A are synchronous buck regulators with integrated high-side and low-side FETs. The regulator can operate from an input voltage range of 4. 5V to 18V while delivering a very efficient continuous 3A current. This is all delivered in a very compact 3mmx4mm DFN package. The ISL85003 is designed on Intersil’s proprietary fab process that is designed to deliver very low rDS(ON) FETs with an optimized current mode controller wrapped around it. The high-side NFET is designed to have an rDS(ON) of 65mΩ while the low-side NFET is designed to have an rDS(ON) of 45mΩ. With these two FETs, the device delivers very high efficiency power to the load. The ISL85003 can automatically switch between DCM and CCM for light-load efficiency in DCM. The switching frequency in CCM is internally set to 500kHz. The device provides a maximum static regulation tolerance of ±1% over wide line, load and temperature ranges. The output is user adjustable, with external resistors, down to 0. 8V. Pulling EN above 0. 6V enables the controller. The regulator supports prebiased output. Fault protection is provided by internal current limiting during positive or negative overcurrent conditions, output and input under and overvoltage detection and an over-temperature monitoring circuit.

12V Synchronous Buck Regulator Family

Today I would like to introduce one of the most efficient and compact synchronous buck regulator families in the marketplace today.

There are many 12V rails in industrial applications today that need a buck converter to step the voltage down to a lower voltage and deliver up to 14A. Some of these applications often require a very efficient and compact solution. The highly integrated buck regulators listed here allow the users to meet all these requirements.

The ISL85009, ISL85012 and ISL85014 are pin compatible, very efficient and are able to deliver up to 14A. In applications that need less than 5A, Renesas offers ISL85003 and ISL85005 that are pin compatible. The ISL85009, ISL85012 and ISL85014 can operate from 3.8V to 18V input voltage, and the output voltage can be set as low as 0.6V. This family is highly integrated. The high-side and low-side FETs, with a bootstrap diode and compensation circuits are all integrated which helps to reduce the size, cost and bill of material.

This family is also highly reliable. It has high-side and low-side overcurrent protection, input and output overvoltage protection, over-temperature protection and negative current protection all integrated in the IC. This family also provides full feature sets and design flexibility to customers.

For instance, the selectable OCP scheme feature gives flexibility to the power supply designer to choose between hiccup and latch-off OCP mode, depending on their application requirements. Finally, the ISL85009, ISL85012 and ISL85014 are pin compatible, highly efficient and capable of delivering up to 14A in a very small 3.5mm x 3.5mm TQFN package.

As you see in the efficiency curve here, the ISL85009 provides one of the most efficient solution in the marketplace today. To support our customers with this family, we have developed several evaluation and demo boards.

Supporting tools such as iSim model, PowerCompass, schematic and Gerber files are all available online for this family on our website.
