The LM5165-Q1 device is a compact, easy-to-use, 3-V to 65-V, ultra-low IQ synchronous buck converter with high efficiency over wide input voltage and load current ranges. With integrated high-side and low-side power MOSFETs, up to 150-mA of output current can be delivered at fixed output voltages of 3.3 V or 5 V or at an adjustable output. The converter is designed to simplify implementation while providing options to optimize the performance for the target application. Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) mode is selected for optimal light-load efficiency or Constant On-Time (COT) control for nearly constant operating frequency. Both control schemes do not require loop compensation while providing excellent line and load transient response and short PWM on-time for large step-down conversion ratios.

The high-side P-channel MOSFET can operate at 100% duty cycle for lowest dropout voltage and does not require a bootstrap capacitor for gate drive. Also, the current limit setpoint is adjustable to optimize inductor selection for a particular output current requirement. Selectable and adjustable start-up timing options include minimum delay (no soft start), internally fixed (900 µs), and externally programmable soft start using a capacitor. An open-drain PGOOD indicator can be used for sequencing, fault reporting, and output voltage monitoring. The LM5165-Q1 is qualified to automotive AEC-Q100 grade 1 and is available in 10-pin VSON and VSSOP packages with 0.5-mm pin pitch.
