Tracking, Sinking and Sourcing, Synchronous Buck
Controller for DDR Memory and Termination Supplies
General Description
The MAX1917 provides a complete power-manage-
ment solution for DDR memory. It contains a synchro-
nous buck controller and an amplifier to generate
1/2V
DDR
voltage for VTT and VTTR. The VTT and VTTR
voltages are maintained within 1% of 1/2V
DDR
. The
controller operates in synchronous rectification mode to
ensure balanced current sourcing and sinking capabili-
ty of up to 25A. With a shutdown current of less than
5µA, the MAX1917 is the best choice for low-power
notebook applications, as well as servers and desktop
computers. An all N-FET design optimizes efficiency.
The MAX1917 can also be used for generating V
DDR
and as a general-purpose step-down controller with
variable switching frequency as high as 1MHz with few
additional components.
The MAX1917 uses Maxim’s proprietary Quick-PWM™
architecture for fast transient response up to 96% effi-
ciency, and the smallest external components. Output
current monitoring is achieved without sense resistors
by monitoring the bottom FET’s drain-to-source voltage.
The current-limit threshold is programmable through an
external resistor. The MAX1917 comes in a space-sav-
ing 16-pin QSOP package.
