3A, 18V, 340kHz Synchronous Step-Down Converter
The RT7297A is a high efficiency, monolithic synchronous
step-down DC/DC converter that can deliver up to 3A
output current from a 4.5V to 18V input supply. The
RT7297A's current mode architecture and external
compensation allow the transient response to be
optimized over a wide input voltage range and loads.
Cycle-by-cycle current limit provides protection against
shorted outputs, and soft-start eliminates input current
surge during start-up. The RT7297A also provides under
voltage protection and thermal shutdown protection. The
low current (<3μA) shutdown mode provides output
disconnection, enabling easy power management in
battery-powered systems. The RT7297A is available in
an SOP-8 (Exposed Pad) package.
