Keywords:switching regulator? DC-DC? point-of-load?

This LM21305 synchronous buck switching regulator board-mounted module is a DC-DC point-of-load (POL) solution touted as capable of driving up to 5A of load current with conversion efficiency, output voltage accuracy, and load and line regulation. The POL module can accept an input voltage between 3V and 18V and deliver an adjustable and accurate output voltage as low as 0.598V.

The module is touted to balance overall solution size with regulator efficiency while showcasing high current density. The power stage has been optimized for an input voltage of 12V and a switching frequency of 500kHz. While the output voltage setpoint is nominally 1.8V, it can be re-defined by modifying one of the feedback resistors. Moreover, by attaching a resistor between the TRIM pin and GND or VOUT, the output voltage can be adjusted up or down, respectively. For fast load transient response and stable operation over the entire input voltage range, the compenzation of the current-mode control loop has been designed to provide a loop bandwidth of 50kHz and phase margin of 60. The Enable (EN) and Power Good (PGOOD) pins can be applied to easily configure the LM21305 in power systems architected with multiple voltage rails and explicit sequencing requirements.
