ADI claims DC-DC converter has highest efficiency
Analog Devices has introduced 6A DC-DC voltage regulators with a conversion efficiency of greater than 95%.
The ADP2384/86 regulators have an input voltage range of 4.5V to 20V and an output range from 0.6V up to 18V with 1% voltage accuracy.
There is a precision-enable input and a power-good output to help the start-up sequence.
The switching frequency of the regulators can be synchronised to an external clock to eliminate beat frequencies between regulators.
The ADP2384/86 operate over the ?40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and are available in 4x4mm 24-lead LFCSP packages.
