The EVQ2451-G-00A is an evaluation board for the MPQ2451, a fixed 2MHz frequency step-down switching regulator with an integrated internal high-side high voltage power MOSFET. The IC provides 0.6A output with current mode control for fast loop response and easy compensation.
High power conversion efficiency over a wide load range is achieved by scaling down the switching frequency at light load condition to reduce the switching and gate driving losses.
The soft-start function helps prevent inductor current runaway during startup and thermal shutdown provides reliable, fault tolerant operation.
By switching at 2MHz, smaller value inductor and input/output capacitor can be used to lower down cost and save board space.
