Compact, Step-Up DC-DC Converters LE AVAILAB General Description
The MAX1674/MAX1675/MAX1676 compact, high-efficiency, step-up DC-DC converters fit in small ÂµMAX
packages. They feature a built-in synchronous rectifier,
which improves efficiency and reduces size and cost
by eliminating the need for an external Schottky diode.
Quiescent supply current is only 16ÂµA.
The input voltage ranges from 0.7V to VOUT, where
VOUT can be set from 2V to 5.5V. Start-up is guaranteed from 1.1V inputs. The MAX1674/MAX1675/
MAX1676 have a preset, pin-selectable output for 5V or
3.3V. The outputs can also be adjusted to other voltages using two external resistors.
All three devices have a 0.3â„¦ N-channel MOSFET
power switch. The MAX1674 has a 1A current limit. The
MAX1675 has a 0.5A current limit, which permits the
use of a smaller inductor. The MAX1676 comes in a
10-pin ÂµMAX package and features an adjustable current limit and circuitry to reduce inductor ringing. ________________________Applications
