SiC461EVB: 5V @ 10A, 7 ~ 60V in, Buck


The SiC461EVB reference board allows the user to evaluate the SiC461 microBUCK® IC regulators for their features and functionalities. It can also be a reference design for a user's application. The board is configured for 4.5 V to 60 V input. Output is model dependent. The operating range may be modified by changing components such as the inductor, feedback resistor, and ripple injection networks.

The SiC46x family of microBUCK regulators is a wide input voltage high efficiency synchronous buck regulator with integrated high-side and low-side power MOSFETs. Its power stage is capable of supplying up to 10 A continuous current at up to 2 MHz switching frequency. These regulators produce an adjustable output voltage down to 0.8 V from 4.5 V to 60 V input rail to accommodate a variety of applications, including computing, consumer electronics, telecom, and industrial.

SiC46x's architecture delivers ultrafast transient response with minimum output capacitance and tight ripple regulation at very light load. The device is stable with any type of output capacitor. The device also incorporates a power saving scheme that significantly increases light load efficiency. This board has UVLO capability on the input rail and a user programmable soft start.
