The EVM3833C-RH-00A is an evaluation board for the MPM3833C, a monolithic step-down module converter with built-in power MOSFETs and inductor. The DC/DC module acheives 3A of continuous output current across a 2.7V to 6V input voltage range, with excellent load and line regulation. The MPM3833C works in forced continuous current mode, and has >10mV voltage ripple with one output capacitor, making it suitable for optical modules, FGPAs, ASICs, and other applications requiring low ripple noise. The output voltage is regulated as low as 0.6V. Only FB resistors and input and output capactiors are needed to compete the design.
The constant-on-time control (COT) scheme provides fast transient repsponse and easy loop stabilization. Fault condition protection includes cycle-by-cycle current limiting and thermal shutdown. The MPM3833C is available in a small, surface-mounted QFN-18 (2.5mmx3.5mmx1.6mm) package.
