Semtech SC283

Dual Channel 2.5MHz, 1.8A Synchronous Step-Down Regulator


TopologyOther Topology
Switching frequency2125-2875 kHz


The SC283 is a dual channel 1.8A synchronous step-down regulator designed to operate with an input voltage range of 2.9 to 5.5 Volts. Each channel offers fifteen pre-determined output voltages via four control pins programmable from 0.8 to 3.3 Volts. The control pins allow for on-the-fly voltage changes, enabling system designers to implement dynamic power savings. The SC283 is also capable of adjusting the output voltage via an external resistor divider.The device operates with a fixed 2.5MHz oscillator frequency, allowing the use of small surface mount external components.Connecting CTL0 — CTL3 to logic low forces the device into shutdown mode reducing the supply current to less than 1μA. Connecting any of the control pins to logic high enables the converter and sets the output voltage according to Table 1. Other features include under-voltage lockout, soft-start to limit inrush current, and over-temperature protection.The SC283 is available in a thermally-enhanced, 2mm x 3mm x 0.8mm MLPQ-W18 package and has a rated temperature range of -40 to +85°C.
