Application Information

The LM63635-Q1 step-down DC-to-DC converter is typically used to convert a higher DC voltage to a lower DC voltage with a maximum output current of 3.25 A. The following design procedure can be used to select components for the LM63635-Q1.

Note:

In this data sheet, the effective value of capacitance is defined as the actual capacitance under D.C. bias and temperature, not the rated or nameplate values. Use high-quality, low-ESR, ceramic capacitors with an X5R or better dielectric throughout. All high value ceramic capacitors have a large voltage coefficient in addition to normal tolerances and temperature effects. Under D.C. bias, the capacitance drops considerably. Large case sizes and higher voltage ratings are better in this regard. To help mitigate these effects, multiple capacitors can be used in parallel to bring the minimum effective capacitance up to the required value. This can also ease the RMS current requirements on a single capacitor. A careful study of bias and temperature variation of any capacitor bank must be made to ensure that the minimum value of effective capacitance is provided.
