SNVS723G October 2011 – July 2018 LMZ10500
The LMZ10500 uses an internal NFET as a synchronous rectifier to minimize the switch voltage drop and increase efficiency. The NFET is designed to conduct through its intrinsic body diode during the built-in dead time between the PFET on-time and the NFET on-time. This eliminates the need for an external diode. The dead time between the PFET and NFET connection prevents shoot through current from VIN to PGND during the switching transitions.
