Keywords:PM6680? controller step down? converter load?

This application note demonstrates the performance of the PM6680 dual step-down controller by implementing a two output point of load converter in a small PCB footprint. Utilizing constant on-time architecture and featuring a no-audio skip mode of operation, a common bus voltage that ranges between 10Vdc to 16Vdc is converted to 1.0Vdc at 10.5A and 1.8Vdc at 2.5A for a total output power level of 15W. The unique no-audio skip feature significantly improves efficiency at light load. Using surface-mount components on both the top and bottom of the circuit board and featuring ceramic output capacitors, the area needed for the converter measures only 1.0 inches x 1.25 inches (25.4mm x 37.75mm). The method for component value dimensioning is described along with the schematic and construction details. Typical efficiencies and functional test data are also presented.
