High-Accuracy Step-Down Controller
with Synchronous Rectifier for CPU Power
_______________General Description
The MAX798
high-performance, step-down DC-DC
converter provides main CPU power in battery-powered
systems. This buck controller achieves 96% efficiency
by using synchronous rectification and Maxim’s propri-
etary Idle Mode™ control scheme to extend battery life
at full-load (up to 10A) and no-load outputs. The
MAX798’s high accuracy meets the demanding require-
ments of the latest-generation CPUs. Excellent dynamic
response corrects output transients caused by the latest
dynamic-clock CPUs within five 300kHz clock cycles.
Unique bootstrap circuitry drives inexpensive N-channel
MOSFETs, reducing system cost and eliminating the crow-
bar switching currents found in some PMOS/NMOS switch
designs.
The MAX798 has a logic-controlled and synchronizable
fixed-frequency pulse-width-modulating (PWM) operating
mode, which reduces noise and RF interference in sensi-
tive mobile-communications and pen-entry applications.
The SKIP override input allows automatic switchover to
idle-mode operation (for high-efficiency pulse skipping) at
light loads, or forces fixed-frequency mode for lowest noise
at all loads.
