Example requirements for a typical 5-V application. The input voltages are here for illustration purposes only. See Electrical Characteristics for minimum operating input voltage. The minimum input voltage necessary to achieve proper output regulation depends on the components used. See Figure 31 for typical drop-out behavior.
|DESIGN PARAMETER||EXAMPLE VALUE|
|Input voltage range||8 V to 18 V steady state, 5.5 V to 36 V transients|
|Output current||0 A to 3.5 A|
|Switching Frequency at 0-A load||Critical: must have > 1.85 MHz|
|Current Consumption at 0-A load||Not critical: < 100 mA acceptable|
|Synchronization||Yes: 1.9 MHz supplied by MCU|
