The LM5143-Q1 4-phase reference design is an automotive synchronous buck DC/DC regulator that employs synchronous rectification to achieve high conversion efficiency in a small footprint. It operates over a wide input voltage range of 8 V to 18 V, providing a regulated output of 5 V. The output voltage has better than 1% setpoint accuracy and is adjustable by installing appropriate feedback resistor values, letting you customize the output voltage from 1.8 V to 8 V as needed.
The module design uses the LM5143-Q1 65-V synchronous buck controller and has the following:
The free-running switching frequency is 2.1 MHz and is synchronizable to a higher or lower frequency if required. A synchronization output signal (SYNCOUT) from the master controller is 90° phase-shifted relative to its internal clock and drives the DEMB/SYNCIN pin of the slave controller. VCC voltage rail UVLO protects the converter at low input voltage conditions, and EN pins for each phase support application specific power-up and power-down requirements.
The LM5143-Q1 is available in a 40-pin VQFN package with 6-mm × 6-mm footprint to enable DC/DC solutions with high density and low component count. See the LM5143-Q1 3.5-V to 65-V dual synchronous buck DC/DC controller data sheet for more information. Use the LM5143-Q1 with the WEBENCH® Power Designer to create a custom regulator design.
