The LP8774x-Q1 device is designed to meet the power management requirements of the AWR and IWR MMICs in various automotive and industrial radar applications. The device has three step-down DC/DC converters, a 5 V boost converter and a 1.8 V/3.3 V LDO. The LDO is powered from the boost and intended for xWR and peripheral devices IO supply. The device is controlled by an SPI serial interface and by enable signal.
The step-down DC/DC converters support programmable switching frequency of 17.6 MHz, 8.8 MHz or 4.4 MHz and have low noise across wide frequency range which enables LDO-free power solution with minimal or no additional passive filtering. LP8774x-Q1 device offers flexible external component selection to optimize the solution in terms of performance or cost. The features of the device target safety-relevant applications with system-safety requirements up to ASIL-C level.
