The LMS36x5-Q1 is a step-down DC-DC converter, typically used to convert a higher DC voltage to a lower DC voltage with a maximum output current of 3.5 A or 5.5 A. The following design procedures can be used to select components for the LMS36x5-Q1. Alternately, the WEBENCH® Design Tool may be used to generate a complete design. This tool uses 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.
