XC9246 Series

16V Driver Transistor Built-In Step-Down DC/DC Converters

XC9246 series is a 16V step-down DC/DC converter with a built-in driver transistor. The series provides high efficiency, and a stable power supply with output currents up to 1A. The series is designed for use with small ceramic capacitors.

The series has a 1.0V reference voltage, and using externally connected resistors, the output voltage can be set freely. With an internal switching frequency of 1.2MHz, small external components can be used. The soft-start time is internally set to 1.5ms (TYP.), but can be adjusted to set a longer time using an external resistor and capacitor.

In PWM/PFM switching control mode, provides fast response, low ripple and high efficiency over the full range of loads (from light load to heavy load).

With the UVLO (Under Voltage Lock Out) function, the internal driver transistor is forced OFF when input voltage becomes lower than detect voltage. The series includes current limit, thermal shutdown, and short-circuit protection.

Two types of package SOT-26W and USP-6C are available.

QuestionWhat is the soft-start function?

The function to soften the rise to prevent the inrush current.

QuestionWhat does the FB product mean?

An IC for which any output voltage can be set by the reference voltage of the FB pins and the external dividing resistor. The output voltage is determined by the RFB1 and RFB2 values, using the following formula: VOUT = Vref × (RFB1 + RFB2)/RFB2

QuestionHow does UVLO (under voltage lockout) work?

This circuit forcibly turns off the driver transistor when VIN drops below the UVLO voltage. If the input voltage recovers to the value which is equal to the specified value or more, UVLO will be released to resume the switching operation. It is resumed by the soft-start function. The paused state by UVLO is not the shutdown. The pulse output is stopped, but the internal circuit is operating.
