The LMR34215-Q1 regulator is an easy-to-use, synchronous, step-down DC/DC converter. With integrated high-side and low-side power MOSFETs, output current is delivered over a wide input voltage range of 4.2 V to 42 V.

The LMR34215-Q1 uses peak-current-mode control to provide optimal efficiency and output voltage accuracy. Precision enable gives flexibility by enabling a direct connection to the wide input voltage or precise control over device start-up and shutdown. The power-good flag, with built-in filtering and delay, offers a true indication of system status eliminating the requirement for an external supervisor.
