Eval Board Integrates Four Step-Down DC-DCs and Logic Interface

The EV5470-L-00A from Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) is an evaluation board for MP5470, a complete power management solution that integrates four high-efficiency step-down dc-dc converters and a flexible logic interface.

The COT control dc-dc converter offers fast transient response. Up to 1.6MHz programmable switching frequency significantly reduces the size of external inductors and capacitors.

The board features out-of-phase synchronization, and it supports I2C Voltage Scaling. The device has a 6.5V to 16V operating input range. It boasts low RDS(on), and operates with high efficiency. The board integrates a bootstrap capacitor.

Full protection features include OCP, UVLO, and thermal shut down.

Output voltage is adjustable via an I2C bus or preset by 3 times programmable MTP (Multi-Time Programmable) eFuse. The power on/off sequence is also programmable through MTP.

The MP5470 power management solution requires a minimal number of external components. It is available in space saving 22-pin QFN (3mm x 4mm) package.
