Synchronous Step-Down DC-DC Converter
with 22µA No-Load Supply Current
General Description
Benefits and Features
The MAX17550 uses peak-current-mode control. The
device can be operated in pulse-width modulation (PWM)
or pulse-frequency modulation (PFM) modes.
●● Reduces Number of DC-DC Regulators to Stock
• Wide 4V to 60V Input
• Adjustable 0.8V to 0.9 x VIN Output
• 100kHz to 2.2MHz Adjustable Switching Frequency
with External Synchronization
The MAX17550 high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous
step-down DC-DC converter with integrated MOSFETs
operates over a 4V to 60V input. The converter can deliver
up to 25mA and generates output voltages from 0.8V up
to 0.9 x VIN. The feedback (FB) voltage is accurate to
within ±1.75% over -40°C to +125°C.
●● Reduces External Components and Total Cost
• No Schottky–Synchronous
• Internal Compensation for Any Output Voltage
• Built-In Soft-Start
• All-Ceramic Capacitors, Compact Layout
The device is available in a 10-pin (3mm x 2mm) TDFN
and 10-pin (3mm x 3mm) μMAX® packages. Simulation
models are available.

Note 2: Actual IQ-PFM in the application circuit is higher due to additional current in the output voltage feedback resistor divider. For
example, IQ-PFM (MODE = unconnected) = 26µA for Figure 6, 22µA for Figure 7, and 78µA for Figure 11.
Note 3: Limits are 100% tested at TA = +25°C. Limits over the operating temperature range and relevant supply voltage range are
guaranteed by design and characterization.

MAX17550
60V, 25mA, Ultra-Small, High-Efficiency
Synchronous Step-Down DC-DC Converter
with 22µA No-Load Supply Current
Detailed Description
The MAX17550 high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous
step-down DC-DC converter with integrated MOSFETs
operates over a 4V to 60V input voltage range. The
converter can deliver output current up to 25mA at output
voltages of 0.8V to 0.9 x VIN. The output voltage is accurate
to within ±1.75% over -40°C to +125°C. The converter
consumes only 22µA of supply current in PFM mode,
while regulating the output voltage at no load.
The device uses an internally compensated, peakcurrent-mode-control architecture (see the Block
Diagram). On the rising-edge of the 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 slope-compensation 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 low-side 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 currentlimit feature limits inductor peak current by turning off
the high-side pMOSFET and turning on the low-side
nMOSFET.
Mode Selection (MODE)
The device features a MODE pin for selecting either the
forced-PWM or PFM modes of operation. If the MODE
pin is left unconnected, the device operates in PFM mode
at light loads. If the MODE pin is grounded, the device
operates in a constant-frequency forced-PWM mode at all
loads. The mode of operation can be changed on-the-fly
during normal operation of the device.
In PWM mode, the inductor current is allowed to go
negative. PWM operation is useful in frequency-sensitive
applications and provides fixed switching frequency at all
loads. However, the PWM mode of operation gives lower
efficiency at light loads when compared to the PFM mode of
operation.
PFM mode disables negative inductor current and additionally skips pulses at light loads for high efficiency. In
PFM mode, the inductor current is forced to a fixed peak
of 23mA (typ) (IPFM) every clock cycle until the output
rises to 102% (typ) of the nominal voltage. Once the
output reaches 102% (typ) of the nominal voltage, both
www.maximintegrated.com
high-side and low-side FETs are turned off and the device
enters hibernate operation until the load discharges the
output to 101% (typ) 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% (typ) 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% (typ) of the
nominal output voltage. The device naturally exits PFM
mode when the load current increases to a magnitude of
approximately:
IPFM - (ΔI/2)
where ΔI is the peak-peak ripple current in the output
inductor. The part enters PFM mode again if the load
current reduces to approximately (ΔI/2). See the Inductor
Selection section for details. The advantage of the PFM
mode is higher efficiency at light loads because of lower
current drawn from the supply.
Enable Input (EN/UVLO) and Soft-Start (SS)
When EN/UVLO voltage increases above 1.25V (typ), the
device initiates a soft-start sequence. The duration of the
soft-start depends on the status of the SS pin voltage at
the time of power-up. If the SS pin is not connected, the
device uses a fixed 5ms internal soft-start to ramp up the
internal error-amplifier reference. If a capacitor is connected from SS to GND, a 5μA current source charges the
capacitor and ramps up the SS pin voltage. The SS pin
voltage is used as reference for the internal error amplifier. Such a reference ramp-up allows the output voltage
to increase monotonically from zero to the final set value
independent of the load current.
EN/UVLO can be used as an input voltage UVLOadjustment input. An external voltage-divider between
IN and EN/UVLO to GND adjusts the input voltage at
which the device turns on or turns off. See Setting the
Input Undervoltage-Lockout Level section for details.
If input UVLO programming is not desired, connect
EN/UVLO to IN (see the Electrical Characteristics table for
EN/UVLO rising and falling-threshold voltages). Driving
EN/UVLO low disables both power MOSFETs, as well as
other internal circuitry, and reduces IN quiescent current
to below 1.2μA. The SS capacitor is discharged with an
internal pulldown resistor when EN/UVLO is low. If the
EN/UVLO pin is driven from an external signal source,
a series resistance of minimum 1kW is recommended to
be placed between the signal source output and the EN/
UVLO pin, to reduce voltage ringing on the line.

Switching Frequency (RT/SYNC)
Switching frequency of the device can be programmed
from 100kHz to 2.2MHz by using a resistor connected from
RT/SYNC to GND. The switching frequency (fSW) is related to the resistor connected at the RT/SYNC pin (RT) by
the following equation, where RT is in kΩ and fSW is in kHz:
RT =
42000
f SW
The switching frequency in ranges of 130kHz to
160kHz and 230kHz to 280kHz are not allowed for user
programming to ensure proper configuration of the
internal adaptive-loop compensation scheme.
External Synchronization
The RT/SYNC pin can be used to synchronize the
device’s internal oscillator to an external system clock.
The external clock should be coupled to the RT/SYNC
pin through a 47pF capacitor, as shown in Figure 1. The
external clock logic-high level should be higher than 3V,
logic-low level lower than 0.5V and the duty cycle of the
external clock should be in the range of 10% to 70%.
External-clock synchronization is allowed only in PWM
mode (MODE pin connected to GND). The RT resistor
should be selected to set the switching frequency 10%
lower than the external clock frequency. The external
clock should be applied at least 500μs after enabling
the device for proper configuration of the internal loop
compensation.
External Bias (VOUT)
The device provides a VOUT pin to power the internal
blocks from a low-voltage supply. When the VOUT pin
voltage exceeds 3.1V, the device draws switching and
quiescent current from this pin to improve the converter’s
efficiency. In applications with an output voltage setting
from 3.3V to 5V, VOUT should be decoupled to GND with

a ceramic capacitor and be connected to the positive
terminal of the output capacitor with a resistor (R4, C1), as
shown in the typical application circuits. In the absence of
R4 and C1, the absolute maximum rating of VOUT (-0.3V)
can be exceeded (under short-circuit conditions) due to
oscillations between the ceramic output capacitor and the
inductance of the short-circuit path. In general, parasitic
board or wiring inductance should be minimized and the
output voltage waveform under short-circuit operation
should be verified to ensure that the absolute maximum
rating of VOUT is not exceeded. For applications with an
output voltage setting less than 3.3V or greater than 5V,
VOUT should be connected to GND.
Reset Output (RESET)
The device includes an open-drain RESET output to
monitor output voltage. RESET should be pulled up with
an external resistor to the desired external power supply.
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
output voltage. RESET asserts low during the hiccup
timeout period.
Startup Into a Prebiased Output
The device supports monotonic startup into a prebiased
output. When the device starts into a prebiased output,
both the high-side and low-side switches are turned off so
that the converter does not sink current from the output.
High-side and low-side switches do not start switching
until the PWM comparator commands the first PWM
pulse, at which point switching commences. The output
voltage is then smoothly ramped up to the target value
in alignment with the internal reference. 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. 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 + 6.0))
+ (I OUT × 5.1)

the inductor, fSW is the switching frequency (max), DMAX
is the maximum duty cycle (0.9), and tONMIN is the worstcase minimum controllable switch on-time (128ns)
Overcurrent Protection, HICCUP Mode
The device implements a HICCUP-type overload protection scheme to protect the inductor and internal FETs
under output short-circuit conditions. When the inductor
peak current exceeds 0.072A (typ) 16 consecutive times,
the part enters HICCUP mode. In this mode, the part is
initially operated with hysteretic cycle-by-cycle peak-current
limit that continues for a time period equal to twice the
soft-start time. The part is then turned off for a fixed
51ms hiccup timeout period. This sequence of hysteretic
inductor current waveforms, followed by a hiccup timeout
period, continues until the short/overload on the output is
removed. Since the inductor current is bound between two
limits, inductor current runway never happens.
Thermal-Overload Protection
Thermal-overload protection limits the total power dissipation in the IC. When the junction temperature exceeds
+160°C, an on-chip thermal sensor shuts down the
device, turns off the internal power MOSFETs, allowing it
to cool down. The device turns on after the junction temperature cools by 20°C.
Applications Information
Inductor Selection
A low-loss inductor having the lowest possible DC resistance that fits in the allotted dimensions should be selected. Calculate the required inductance from the equation:
37000 x VOUT
L=
f SW
where L is inductance in μH, VOUT is output voltage
and fSW is the switching frequency in kHz. Calculate the
peak-peak ripple current (ΔI) in the output inductor from
the equation:


V
1000 × VOUT × 1 − OUT 
V
IN 

∆I =
f SW × L
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, but
are relatively less expensive than ferrite cores.
Input Capacitor Selection
Small ceramic input capacitors are recommended for the
IC. 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 in a package larger than 0805
is recommended for the input capacitor of the IC to keep the
input-voltage ripple under 2% of the minimum input voltage,
and to meet the maximum ripple-current requirements.
Output Capacitor Selection
Small ceramic X7R-grade output capacitors are recommended for the device. The output capacitor serves two
functions: storing sufficient energy to support the output
voltage under load-transient conditions and stabilizing 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 application, such that the outputvoltage deviation is less than 3%. Calculate the minimum
required output capacitance from the following equations
Frequency

(μF)
100 to 130
25/VOUT
160 to 230
25/VOUT

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.
where L is inductance in μH, VOUT is output voltage, VIN
is input voltage and fSW is the switching frequency in kHz.
The saturation current rating of the inductor must exceed
the maximum current-limit value (IPEAK-LIMIT). The
saturation current rating should be at least 0.078A.

Soft-Start Capacitor Selection
The MAX17550 offers a 5.1ms internal soft-start when
the SS pin is left unconnected. When adjustable soft-start
time is required, connect a capacitor from SS to GND
to program the soft-start time.
The minimum soft-start time is related to the output
capacitance (COUT) and the output voltage (VOUT) by the
following equation:
tSS > 0.05 x COUT x VOUT
where tSS is in milliseconds and COUT is in µF.
Soft-start time (tSS) is related to the capacitor connected at
SS (CSS) by the following equation:
C=
SS 6.25 × t SS
where tSS is in milliseconds and CSS is in nanofarads.
Setting the Input Undervoltage-Lockout Level
The device offers an adjustable input undervoltagelockout level. Set the voltage at which the device turns on
with a resistive voltage-divider connected from IN to GND
(see Figure 2). 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× 1.25
(VINU - 1.25)
These transients can occur in conditions such as hotplugging from a low-impedance source or due to inductive
load-switching and surges on the supply lines.
Power Dissipation
Ensure that the junction temperature of the device does
not exceed 125°C under the operating conditions specified for the power supply. At a particular operating condition, the power losses that lead to temperature rise of the
device are estimated as follows:

 1 
PLOSS = POUT x  - 1  - (I OUT 2 x R DCR )
 η 

POUT = VOUT x I OUT
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
section for the power-conversion efficiency, or measure
the efficiency to determine the total power dissipation.

Adjusting the Output Voltage
VOUT
The output voltage can be programmed from 0.8V to
0.9 x VIN. Set the output voltage by connecting a resistordivider from output to FB to GND (see Figure 3). Choose
R2 in the range of 25kΩ to 100kΩ and calculate R1 with
the following equation:

Transient Protection
In applications where fast line transients or oscillations
with a slew rate in excess of 15V/µs are expected during power-up or steady-state operation, the MAX17550
should be protected with a series resistor that forms a
lowpass filter with the input ceramic capacitor (Figure 4).

following equation:
TJ= T A + (θ JA × PLOSS )
where θJA is the junction-to-ambient thermal impedance
of the package.
PCB Layout Guidelines
Careful PCB layout (Figure 5) is critical to achieving clean
and stable operation. The switching power stage requires
particular attention. Follow these guidelines for good PCB
layout:
Figure 5
VIN
● Place the input ceramic capacitor as close as possible
to VIN and GND pins
● Minimize the area formed by the LX pin and inductor
connection to reduce the radiated EMI
● Ensure that all feedback connections are short and
direct
● Route high-speed switching node (LX) away from the
signal pins
For a sample PCB layout that ensures the first-pass
success, refer to the MAX17550 evaluation kit data sheet.
