Device Overview

Summary

The MCP1601 is a synchronous Buck (step-down) switching regulator that can continuously supply 500mA of load current. This DC/DC converter can provide output voltages of 0.9V to Vin with an operating efficiency that can exceed 92%. Although ideally suited for a single Li-Ion, or 2 to 3 cell NiCd, NiMH, or alkaline battery operation, the input range of 2.7V to 5.5V is also useful for converting bus voltages to standard system requirements.

Additional Features
    • 3 operating modes (PWM, PFM, LDO) with automatic switching between modes
    • Shutdown mode to minimize current drain during stand-bye conditions
    • Oscillator Synchronization to 1.0MHz PWM mode
    • Integrated Buck and Synchronous switches
    • Complete ceramic capacitor solution
    • Integrated UVLO, Soft-start, and Over temperature protection
    • Short circuit protection
    • -40°C to +85°C operation

MCP1601 Buck Regulator Evaluation Board ( MCP1601EV )
(Not Recommended for new design)

The MCP1601 Buck Regulator Evaluation Board demonstrates Microchip's MCP1601 Synchronous Buck Regulator, developed for battery powered applications as well as distributed power applications. The MCP1601 Evaluation Board is capable of operation over the entire 2.7V to 5.5V input range of the MCP1601 device. Two 2-position DIP switches are used, one to select the output voltage (1.8V, 2.05V, 2.45V...
