EVALUATION KIT AVAILABLE
MAX15462
42V, 300mA, Ultra-Small, High-Efficiency,
Synchronous Step-Down DC-DC Converters
General Description
The MAX15462 high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous
step-down DC-DC converter with integrated MOSFETs
operates over a 4.5V to 42V input voltage range. The
converter delivers output current up to 300mA at 3.3V
(MAX15462A), 5V (MAX15462B), and adjustable output
voltages (MAX15462C). The device operates over the
-40°C to +125°C temperature range and is available in a
compact 8-pin (2mm x 2mm) TDFN package. Simulation
models are available.
The device employs a peak-current-mode control
architecture with a MODE pin that can be used to
operate the device in the pulse-width modulation (PWM)
or pulse-frequency modulation (PFM) control schemes.
PWM operation provides constant frequency operation at
all loads and is useful in applications sensitive to variable
switching frequency. PFM operation disables negative inductor current and additionally skips pulses at light loads for high
efficiency. The low-resistance on-chip MOSFETs ensure high
efficiency at full load and simplify the PCB layout.
To reduce input inrush current, the device offers an
internal soft-start. The device also incorporates an EN/
UVLO pin that allows the user to turn on the part at the
desired input-voltage level. An open-drain RESET pin can
be used for output-voltage monitoring.

Stresses beyond those listed under “Absolute Maximum Ratings” may cause permanent damage to the device. These are stress ratings only, and functional operation of the device at these
or any other conditions beyond those indicated in the operational sections of the specifications is not implied. Exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions for extended periods may affect
device reliability. Junction temperature greater than +125°C degrades operating lifetimes.

42V, 300mA, Ultra-Small, High-Efficiency,
Synchronous Step-Down DC-DC Converters
Detailed Description
The MAX15462 high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous
step-down DC-DC converter with integrated MOSFETs
operates over a wide 4.5V to 42V input voltage range.
The converter delivers output current up to 300mA at
3.3V (MAX15462A), 5V (MAX15462B), and adjustable
output voltages (MAX15462C). When EN/UVLO and
VCC UVLO are satisfied, an internal power-up sequence
soft-starts the error-amplifier reference, resulting in a
clean monotonic output-voltage soft-start independent of
the load current. The FB/VOUT pin monitors the output
voltage through a resistor-divider. RESET transitions
to a high-impedance state 2ms after the output voltage
reaches 95% of regulation. The device selects either
PFM or forced-PWM mode depending on the state of the
MODE pin at power-up. By pulling the EN/UVLO pin low,
the device enters the shutdown mode and consumes only
2.2µA (typ) of standby current.
DC-DC Switching Regulator
The device uses an internally compensated, fixed-frequency,
current-mode control scheme (see the Block Diagram).
On the rising-edge of an internal clock, the high-side
pMOSFET turns on. An internal error amplifier compares
the feedback voltage to a fixed internal reference voltage
and generates an error voltage. The error voltage is compared to a sum of the current-sense voltage and a slopecompensation voltage by a PWM comparator to set the
on-time. During the on-time of the pMOSFET, the inductor current ramps up. For the remainder of the switching
period (off-time), the pMOSFET is kept off and the lowside nMOSFET turns on. During the off-time, the inductor
releases the stored energy as the inductor current ramps
down, providing current to the output. Under overload
conditions, the cycle-by-cycle current-limit feature limits
the inductor peak current by turning off the high-side
pMOSFET and turning on the low-side nMOSFET.
Mode Selection (MODE)
The logic state of the MODE pin is latched after VCC
and EN/UVLO voltages exceed respective UVLO rising
thresholds and all internal voltages are ready to allow
LX switching. If the MODE pin is unconnected at powerup, the part operates in PFM mode at light loads. If the
MODE pin is grounded at power-up, the part operates in
constant-frequency PWM mode at all loads. State changes
on the MODE pin are ignored during normal operation.
loads. However, the PWM mode of operation gives lower
efficiency at light loads compared to PFM mode of operation.
PFM Mode Operation
PFM mode operation disables negative inductor current
and skips pulses at light loads for high efficiency. In
PFM mode, the inductor current is forced to a fixed
peak of 130mA every clock cycle until the output rises to
102.3% of the nominal voltage. Once the output reaches
102.3% of the nominal voltage, both high-side and lowside FETs are turned off and the part enters hibernate
operation until the load discharges the output to 101.1%
of the nominal voltage. Most of the internal blocks are
turned off in hibernate operation to save quiescent current. After the output falls below 101.1% of the nominal
voltage, the device comes out of hibernate operation,
turns on all internal blocks, and again commences the
process of delivering pulses of energy to the output until
it reaches 102.3% of the nominal output voltage. The device
naturally exits PFM mode when the load current exceeds
55mA (typ). The advantage of the PFM mode is higher
efficiency at light loads because of lower quiescent
current drawn from supply.
Internal 5V Linear Regulator
An internal regulator provides a 5V nominal supply to
power the internal functions and to drive the power
MOSFETs. The output of the linear regulator (VCC) should
be bypassed with a 1µF capacitor to GND. The VCC
regulator dropout voltage is typically 150mV. An undervoltage-lockout circuit that disables the regulator when VCC
falls below 3.8V (typ). The 400mV VCC UVLO hysteresis
prevents chattering on power-up and power-down.
Enable Input (EN/UVLO), Soft-Start
When EN/UVLO voltage is above 1.21V (typ), the device’s
internal error-amplifier reference voltage starts to ramp up.
The duration of the soft-start ramp is 4.1ms, allowing a
smooth increase of the output voltage. Driving EN/UVLO
low disables both power MOSFETs, as well as other internal
circuitry, and reduces VIN quiescent current to below 2.2µA.
EN/UVLO can be used as an input-voltage UVLO adjustment
input. An external voltage-divider between VIN and EN/UVLO
to GND adjusts the input voltage at which the device turns
on or turns off. If input UVLO programming is not desired,
connect EN/UVLO to VIN (see the Electrical Characteristics
table for EN/UVLO rising and falling threshold voltages).
PWM Mode Operation
In PWM mode, the inductor current is allowed to go
negative. PWM operation is useful in frequency-sensitive
applications, providing fixed switching frequency at all

Reset Output (RESET)
The device includes an open-drain RESET output to
monitor the output voltage. RESET goes high impedance
2ms after the output rises above 95% of its nominal set
value and pulls low when the output voltage falls below
92% of the set nominal regulated voltage. RESET asserts
low during the hiccup timeout period.
Startup into a Prebiased Output
The device is capable of soft-start into a prebiased
output, without discharging the output capacitor in both the
PFM and forced-PWM modes. Such a feature is useful in
applications where digital integrated circuits with multiple
rails are powered.
Operating Input Voltage Range
The maximum operating input voltage is determined
by the minimum controllable on-time and the minimum
operating input voltage is determined by the maximum
duty cycle and circuit voltage drops. The minimum and
maximum operating input voltages for a given output
voltage should be calculated as follows:
VINMIN
VOUT + (I OUT × (R DCR + 0.5))
+ (I OUT × 1.0)
D MAX
VINMAX =
VOUT
t ONMIN × f SW
where VOUT is the steady-state output voltage, IOUT is
the maximum load current, RDCR is the DC resistance of
the inductor, fSW is the switching frequency (max), DMAX
is maximum duty cycle (0.9), and tONMIN is the worstcase minimum controllable switch on-time (130ns).
Overcurrent Protection/Hiccup Mode
The device is provided with a robust overcurrent protection scheme that protects the device under overload and
output short-circuit conditions. A cycle-by-cycle peak
current limit turns off the high-side MOSFET whenever
the high-side switch current exceeds an internal limit
of 0.56A (typ). A runaway current limit on the high-side
switch current at 0.66A (typ) protects the device under
high input voltage, and short-circuit conditions when
there is insufficient output voltage available to restore the
inductor current that was built up during the on period of
the step-down converter. One occurrence of the runaway
current limit triggers a hiccup mode. In addition, if, due to
www.maximintegrated.com
a fault condition, the output voltage drops to 65% (typ)
of its nominal value any time after soft-start is complete,
hiccup mode is triggered. In hiccup mode, the converter
is protected by suspending switching for a hiccup timeout
period of 131ms. Once the hiccup timeout period expires,
soft-start is attempted again. Hiccup mode of operation
ensures low power dissipation under output short-circuit
conditions.
Care should be taken in board layout and system wiring
to prevent violation of the absolute maximum rating of the
FB/VOUT pin under short-circuit conditions. Under such
conditions, it is possible for the ceramic output capacitor
to oscillate with the board or wiring inductance between
the output capacitor or short-circuited load, thereby causing
the absolute maximum rating of FB/VOUT (-0.3V) to be
exceeded. The parasitic board or wiring inductance should
be minimized, and the output voltage waveform under
short-circuit operation should be verified, to ensure the
absolute maximum rating of FB/VOUT is not exceeded.
Thermal Overload Protection
Thermal overload protection limits the total power
dissipation in the device. When the junction temperature
exceeds +166°C, an on-chip thermal sensor shuts down
the device, turns off the internal power MOSFETs, allowing
the device to cool down. The thermal sensor turns the
device on after the junction temperature cools by 10°C.
Applications Information
Inductor Selection
A low-loss inductor having the lowest possible DC
resistance that fits in the allotted dimensions should be
selected. The saturation current (ISAT) must be high
enough to ensure that saturation cannot occur below the
maximum current-limit value (IPEAK-LIMIT) of 0.56A (typ).
The required inductance for a given application can be
determined from the following equation:
L = 9.3 x VOUT
where L is inductance in µH and VOUT is output voltage.
Once the L value is known, the next step is to select the
right core material. Ferrite and powdered iron are commonly available core materials. Ferrite cores have low
core losses and are preferred for high-efficiency designs.
Powdered iron cores have more core losses and are relatively cheaper than ferrite cores. See Table 1 to select the
inductors for typical applications.

Input Capacitor
Small ceramic capacitors are recommended for the
device. The input capacitor reduces peak current drawn
from the power source and reduces noise and voltage
ripple on the input caused by the switching circuitry. A
minimum of 1µF, X7R-grade capacitor is recommended
for the input capacitor of the device to keep the input
voltage ripple under 2% of the minimum input voltage,
and to meet the maximum ripple-current requirements.
Output Capacitor
Small ceramic X7R-grade capacitors are sufficient and
recommended for the device. The output capacitor has
two functions. It filters the square wave generated by the
device along with the output inductor. It stores sufficient
energy to support the output voltage under load transient
conditions and stabilizes the device’s internal control
loop. Usually, the output capacitor is sized to support a
step load of 50% of the maximum output current in the
www.maximintegrated.com
application, such that the output-voltage deviation is less
than 3%. Required output capacitance can be calculated
from the following equation:
C OUT =
30
VOUT
where COUT is the output capacitance in µF and VOUT
is the output voltage. See Table 2 to select the output
capacitor for typical applications. It should be noted that
dielectric materials used in ceramic capacitors exhibit
capacitance loss due to DC bias levels and should be
appropriately derated to ensure the required output
capacitance is obtained in the application.
Setting the Input Undervoltage-Lockout Level
The devices offer an adjustable input undervoltagelockout level. Set the voltage at which the device turns
on with a resistive voltage-divider connected from VIN
to GND (see Figure 1). Connect the center node of the
divider to EN/UVLO.
Choose R1 to be 3.3MΩ max, and then calculate R2 as follows:
R2 =
R1× 1.215
(VINU - 1.215)
where VINU is the voltage at which the device is required
to turn on. If the EN/UVLO pin is driven from an external
signal source, a series resistance of minimum 1kΩ is
recommended to be placed between the signal source
output and the EN/UVLO pin, to reduce voltage ringing
on the line.

For output voltages less than 6V, choose R2 in the 50kΩ
to 150kΩ range. For the output voltages greater than 6V,
choose R2 in the 25kΩ to 75kΩ range and calculate R1
with the following equation:
● Place the input ceramic capacitor as close as possible
to the VIN and GND pins.
The MAX15462C output voltage can be programmed from
0.9V to 0.89 x VIN. Set the output voltage by connecting a
resistor-divider from output to FB to GND (see Figure 2).

Power Dissipation
At a particular operating condition, the power losses that
lead to temperature rise of the part are estimated as follows:

 1 

Careful PCB layout is critical to achieve clean and stable
operation. The switching power stage requires particular
attention. Follow the guidelines below for good PCB layout.
● Connect the negative terminal of the VCC bypass
capacitor to the GND pin with shortest possible trace or
ground plane.
● Minimize the area formed by the LX pin and the inductor
connection to reduce the radiated EMI.
● Place the VCC decoupling capacitor as close as possible
to the VCC pin.
● Ensure that all feedback connections are short and
direct.
● Route the high-speed switching node (LX) away from
the FB/VOUT, RESET, and MODE pins.
For a sample PCB layout that ensures the first-pass
success, refer to the MAX15462 evaluation kit layouts
available at www.maximintegrated.com.
where POUT is the output power, η is the efficiency of
power conversion, and RDCR is the DC resistance of the
output inductor. See the Typical Operating Characteristics
for the power-conversion efficiency or measure the
efficiency to determine the total power dissipation.
The junction temperature (TJ) of the device can be
estimated at any ambient temperature (TA) from the
following equation:
TJ= T A + (θ JA × PLOSS )
where θJA is the junction-to-ambient thermal impedance
of the package. Junction temperature greater than +125°C
degrades operating lifetimes.
