NCP1597AGEVB: Synchronous PWM Converter Evaluation Board

Evaluation/Development Tool Description

The NCP1597A family is a fixed 1 MHz frequency, high-output-current, synchronous PWM converter that integrate low-resistance, high-side P-channel MOSFETs and low-side N-channel MOSFETs. The NCP1597A utilizes current mode control to provide fast transient response and excellent loop stability and supports PFM mode at light load for higher efficiency. It regulates input voltages from 4.0 V to 5.5 V down to an output voltage as low as 0.8 V and is able to supply up to 2.0 A.

The NCP1597A has features including fixed internally switching frequency (FSW), and an internal soft-start to limit inrush currents. Using the EN pin, shutdown supply current is reduced to 1 µA maximum.

Other features include cycle-by-cycle current limiting; short-circuit protection, power saving mode and thermal shutdown.
