The MP4316A is a synchronous, step-down switching converter with a configurable frequency and integrated, internal high-side MOSFET (HS-FET) and low-side MOSFET (LS-FET). The device provides up to 6A of highly efficient output current (IOUT), with current mode control for fast loop response.
The wide 3.3V to 45V input voltage (VIN) range accommodates a variety of step-down applications in automotive input environments. A 1.7μA quiescent current (IQ) in shutdown mode allows the device to be used in battery-powered applications.
The MP4316A achieves high power conversion efficiency across the wide load range by scaling down the switching frequency (fSW) under light-load conditions to reduce switching and gate driver losses. An open-drain power good (PG) signal indicates when the output is within 95% to 105% of its nominal voltage.
Frequency foldback helps prevent inductor current runaway during start-up. Thermal shutdown provides reliable, fault-tolerant operation. The MP4316A provides a high duty cycle and low-dropout mode for automotive cold-crank conditions.
The MP4316A is available in a QFN-20 (4mmx4mm) package.

DESIGNING THE FEEDBACK VOLTAGE RESISTOR DIVIDER IN A DC/DC CONVERTERARTICLE
The specifications of the feedback (FB) voltage resistor divider in DC-DC converters often poses various design challenges, such as determining the required resistance or adjusting parameters (e.g. output voltage, upper divider resistance or lower divider resistance). Figure 1 shows the various magnitude combinations for the FB upper and lower divider resistances. This article examines the ...
EVALUATING THE TRANSIENT PERFORMANCE OF BUCK REGULATORS WITH AN INTEGRATED COMPENSATION NETWORKARTICLE
Designing the compensation network for buck regulators can be tedious and may require several iterations to optimize the solution. Having an optimized control loop, which can enable fast transient response while maintaining proper stability, has become a major challenge with the emergence of new applications such as ADAS and fast transient response requirements. To address these issues, buck regul...
SWITCH NODE LAYOUT CONSIDERATIONS FOR EMCARTICLE
The switch node of a switching regulator or power converter circuit is a critical conduction path that requires special attention when designing the PCB layout. This circuit node is where one or more power semiconductor switches (such as a MOSFET or diode) connect to a magnetic energy-storing device (such as an inductor or transformer winding). The switching signals of this circuit node contain fa...
QUICK TIPS TO DIAGNOSE AND STABILIZE AN UNSTABLE SWITCHING POWER SUPPLYARTICLE
An unstable power supply can cause severe system issues, such as audible noise from the passive components, unexpected jittering in the switching frequency, extreme oscillations on the output voltage during load transient events, and failures in the semiconductor switches. While there are various reasons for instability, an un-tuned compensation network accounts for majority of instability issues ...
USING EXTERNAL KNOBS TO IMPROVE TRANSIENT PERFORMANCE OF BUCK REGULATORS WITH AN INTEGRATED COMPENSATION NETWORKARTICLE
The high power density requirement and board-level space constraints in modern applications — such as lighting, ADAS, and USB — call for higher integration in buck regulators. There is a trend to integrate MOSFETs and compensation networks inside the chip. This integration of the compensation network’s passive components saves cost, board space, and design iterations. However, it...
E-TRACKER REFERENCE DESIGNREFERENCE DESIGN
Tracking the location of different types of vehicles is an increasingly popular application for multiple purposes, such as control of transport trucks or anti-theft security. However, this presents two challenges in electronic design. First, the system must be able to track a vehicle’s location when the car battery is turned off. Second, the GSM modules that establish communication with the ...
