6A High Efficient Synchronous Step-Down Converter with I2C Interface
The EV8846-Q-00A is used for demonstrating the performance of MPS’s MP8846. MP8846 is a highly integrated and high frequency synchronous step-down switcher with I2C control interface. It is optimized to support up to 6A load current over an input supply range from 4.5V to 8V with excellent load and line regulation.
Current-Mode operation provides fast transient response and eases loop stabilization. The reference voltage level can be controlled, on-the fly through a 3.4Mbps I2C serial interface. The voltage range can be adjusted from 0.6V to 1.87V in 10mV steps. The voltage slew rate, switching frequency and power savings mode are also selectable through the I2C interface. Fully protection features includes over current protection, over voltage protection and over temperature protection.
MP8846 is available in QFN15 (3mmx3mm) package.

6A, 8V High Efficiency Synchronous Step-Down Converter with I2C Interface
The MP8846 is a high-frequency, synchronous, rectified, step-down, switch-mode converter with an I2C control interface. It offers a very compact solution to achieve a 6A continuous output current with excellent load and line regulation over a wide input-supply range. The MP8846 has synchronous-mode operation for higher efficiency over the output-load range. The reference voltage level can be controlled on-the-fly through a 3.4Mbps I2C serial interface. The voltage range can be adjusted from 0.6V to 1.87V in 10mV steps. The voltage slew rate, switching frequency, enable, and power-saving mode are selectable through the I2C interface. Current-mode operation provides fast transient response and eases loop stabilization. Full protection features include over-current protection (OCP), over-voltage protection (OVP), and thermal shut down (TSD). The MP8846 requires a minimal number of readily available, standard, external components and is available in a 15-pin QFN15 (3mmx3mm) package.
