AEC-Q100 (Grade2) Compliant, 36V Operation 600mA, Expanded Lineup of Synchronous Step-Down DC/DC Converters XD9267/XD9268 Series

Nov 1, 2019

Torex Semiconductor Ltd. (Tokyo Japan: President, Koji Shibamiya, 6616: 1st section at Tokyo Stock Exchange) has launched the XD9267/XD9268 Series of AEC-Q100 Compliant, 600mA synchronous step-down DC/DC converters with an internal 36V -operation driver transistor. 

With the increased use of electronic components in automobiles in recent years, a shift from LDO to DC/DC has begun to reduce electrical power consumption. Further, the increasing need to reduce the space used is expanding the demand for small packages. The newly developed XD9267/XD9268 Series 600mA synchronous step-down DC/DC converters with an internal 36V operation driver transistor are power supply ICs that meet the needs of this market.

The input voltage range is 3.0V to 36.0V (absolute maximum rating 40V), the output voltage range is 1.0V to 25.0V, and the oscillation frequency is 2.2MHz. For the operation mode, PWM control (XD9267) or PWM/PFM automatic switching control (XD9268) can be selected to achieve high efficiency and a low ripple voltage over a wide load range from light to heavy loads. Switching from a regulator to the light load (1mA) efficiency of 82% and the world’s smallest 36V synchronous step-down DC/DC converter means greatly improving efficiency by half and significantly reducing the mounted surface area by 50%.(Fig.1)

The soft-start time is internally set to 2.0ms (TYP.), but can be adjusted to set a longer time using resistor and capacitor. Over-current limiting, UVLO, and thermal shutdown are available as internal protective functions. In addition, the output state can be monitored using the power good function.

The SOT-89-5 package or the small USP-6C package (1.8 x 2.0 x h0.6mm) is optional to match the application.
