Product Description

The MP38873 is a monolithic step-down switch mode converter with a built in internal power MOSFET. It achieves 15A continuous output current over a wide input supply range with excellent load and line regulation. Current mode operation provides fast transient response and eases loop stabilization. Fault condition protection includes cycle?y?ycle current limiting and thermal shutdown. The MP38873 requires a minimum number of readily available standard external components and is available in a 20-pin 3mm x 4mm QFN package. The MP38873 is ideal for a wide range of applications including distributed power systems, pre-regulator for linear regulators, compact DC-DC regulators for PCB space limited platforms.
