High Efficiency Advanced Feature 4-Channel PMIC


High-voltage buck controller

The PV88080 provides one PWM buck controller and three adjustable synchronous buck regulators. The high voltage buck controller can optionally be used to generate the supply for the other three buck converters. Two pass devices (NMOS FET) for the high side and low side of the high voltage buck controller are external which allows the majority of the buck controller power dissipation to be outside the PV88080. This high voltage buck controller uses a constant on time (COT) control scheme with integrated bootstrap PMOS switch.

In certain applications, multiple PV88080s can be used together to provide enough power rails to power the larger systems. There are three buck converters that can be used to generate the supplies for CPUs, DDR memory and other Auxiliary functions in a typical application. The pass devices of these buck converters are fully integrated, so no external FETs or Schottky diodes are needed. This results in optimized power efficiency and a reduced external component count.
