SIMPLE SWITCHER® 8V to 40V, 3A Low Component Count Step-Down Regulator

Recommended alternative parts

  • LM43603  -  3.5 to 36V, 3A Synchronous Step-Down Voltage Regulator - Higher efficiency, Low Quiescent Current, Smaller Solution Size
  • LMR14030  -  4 to 40V, 3.5A 2.2MHz Step-Down Voltage Regulator - Low Quiescent Current, Smaller Solution Size

Description

The LM2676 series of regulators are monolithic integrated circuits which provide all of the active functions for a step-down (buck) switching regulator capable of driving up to 3A loads with excellent line and load regulation characteristics. High efficiency (>90%) is obtained through the use of a low ON-resistance DMOS power switch. The series consists of fixed output voltages of 3.3V, 5V and 12V and an adjustable output version.

The SIMPLE SWITCHER concept provides for a complete design using a minimum number of external components. A high fixed frequency oscillator (260KHz) allows the use of physically smaller sized components. A family of standard inductors for use with the LM2676 are available from several manufacturers to greatly simplify the design process.

The LM2676 series also has built in thermal shutdown, current limiting and an ON/OFF control input that can power down the regulator to a low 50μA quiescent current standby condition. The output voltage is ensured to a ±2% tolerance. The clock frequency is controlled to within a ±11% tolerance.
