The MP2143 is a monolithic, step-down, switch-mode converter with internal power MOSFETs. It can achieve up to 3A continuous output current from a 2.5V–to-5.5V input voltage with excellent load and line regulation. The output voltage can be regulated as low as 0.6V. Constant-on-time control provides fast transient response and eases loop stabilization. Fault-condition protections include cycle-by-cycle current limiting and thermal shutdown. The MP2143 is available in small TSOT23-8 package and requires only a minimal number of readily-available standard external components. The MP2143 is ideal for a wide range of applications including high-performance DSPs, FPGAs, smartphones, portable instruments, and DVD drivers.
The EV2143-J-00A is used for demonstrating the performance of MPS’s the MP2143, a low-voltage, high switching frequency, step-down switcher with built-in power MOSFETs. The MP2143 provides up to 3A highly efficient output with constant-on-time control for fast loop response.
The MP2143 is ideal for powering portable equipment that runs from a single-cell Lithium-ion (Li+) Battery. The output voltage can be regulated as low as 0.6V.
High power efficiency over a wide load range is achieved by scaling down the switching frequency at light load to reduce the switching related loss by constant-on-time control. Short-circuit and thermal shutdown protections provide reliable, fault-tolerant operation.
