DC DC Cntrlr Single-OUT Buck 4V to 20V 8-Pin SOP T/R
The AIC1628 is a high performance step-up DC/DC controller, designed to drive an external power switch to generate programmable positive voltages. In the particularly suitable LCD contrast bias and flash memory programming power supply applications, typical full-load efficiencies are 85% to 95%. 4V to 20V input operation range allows the AIC1628 to be powered directly by the battery pack in the most battery-operated applications for greater efficiency. Output voltage can be scaled to 40V or greater by two external resistors. A Pulse-Frequency Modulation scheme is employed to maintain high efficiency conversion under wide input voltage range. Quiescent current is about 100mA and can be reduced to 8mA in shutdown mode. Switching frequency being around 90KHz to 250KHz range, small size switching components are ideal for battery powered portable equipments, like notebook and palmtop computers.
