DA9142 Diagram

The DA9142 is a high efficiency, high current, dual-phase, step down DC-DC (Buck) converter with integrated switching FET's. The device can drive loads up to 20 Amps and is well suited for powering high performance AI/graphics processor cores in today’s complex SoCs.

The device has an input voltage range of 2.8 V to 5.5 V and an output voltage range of 0.5 V to 1.3 V, making it suitable for a wide variety of low voltage systems. The DA9142 requires a minimum number of discrete components to operate, delivering a highly optimized BoM and footprint.

The DA9142 device is part of the Dialog family of Flexible, Scalable, Reliable commercial grade PMICs enabling an “Exact Fit” power solution. It is available in a 4.5mm x 7.0mm 60-pin FC-BGA package. An Automotive grade version is also available (DA9142-A).

Multi-Phase operation delivers better transient performance, lower losses, better efficiency, optimized thermal dissipation, and minimized ripple current and voltages when compared to a single-phase architecture

Lower PCB costs and smaller components with lower overall heights for low profile applications

Flexibility - Offers the opportunity to optimally place the Inductors and capacitors close to the point of load

Distributed power dissipation –more even distribution of heat – critical for efficient thermal management

Remote sensing guarantees the highest accuracy and supports multiple PCB routing scenarios without loss of performance

Fully programmable soft start limits the inrush current from the input to give a slope-controlled output voltage

Dynamic voltage control (DVC) enables adaptive adjustment of the supply voltage dependent on the load. This increases efficiency when the downstream circuitry enters low power or idle mode, resulting in power savings

Configurable GPIOs support a range of features including I2C, DVC and Power Good indicator
