The LM53600-Q1 and LM53601-Q1 are step-down DC–DC converters, typically used to convert a higher DC voltage to a lower DC voltage with a maximum output current of either 1 A or 650 mA. The following design procedure can be used to select components for the LM53600-Q1 or LM53601-Q1. Alternately, the WEBENCH® Design Tool may be used to generate a complete design. This tool utilizes an iterative design procedure and has access to a comprehensive database of components. This allows the tool to create an optimized design and allows the user to experiment with various design options.
Figure 9-1 shows the minimum required application circuit for the fixed output voltage versions, while Figure 9-2 shows the connections for complete processor control of the LM53601-Q1. Please refer to these figures while following the design procedures. Table 9-2 provides an example of typical design requirements.
