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 3-A 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 3.3-V, 5-V, and 12-V 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 (260 kHz) 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 50‑µA quiescent current standby condition. The output voltage is ensured to a ±2% tolerance. The clock frequency is controlled to within a ±11% tolerance.

The new product, LMR33630, offers reduced BOM cost, higher efficiency, and an 85% reduction in solution size among many other features. See the Device Comparison Table to compare specs. Start a WEBENCH Design with LMR33630.
