ST’s monolithic switching regulators offer input-voltage capability up to 61 V, buck converters able to deliver output currents up to 6 A, and high switching frequency up to 2.3MHz.

The broad portfolio of ICs is composed of highly-specialized products to meet every market requirement and power management needs: high voltage technology, together with high reliability and robustness for industrial and automotive, compactness and high efficiency for consumer applications.

These switched-mode power supply devices embed a full set of protection functions (overcurrent, overvoltage, over-temperature) to increase the MTBF and reduce the number of external components needed for power conversion. There are multiple package options, all offering compactness and high thermal performances to fit different applications.

ST also has a unique and fully isolated, resonant, single-stage direct conversion from 48 V straight to the Point-of-Load (PoL), CPU/DDR in full compliance to Intel VR13 and VR12.5 specifications, and a fully scalable solution able to manage up to 6 interleaved cells with dynamic cell shedding and pulse skipping.


Large selection of step-down DC-DC regulators with synchronous rectification

In the quest for higher efficiency and compact form factor in their DC-DC supply designs, engineers now have a few more allies: the L6985FL6986F and L6986 step-down DC-DC regulators with synchronous rectification and an output current of 0.5 A, 1,5 A and 2 A respectively.
Based on a peak current mode architecture with a p-channel power MOSFET, they feature a selectable low-consumption-mode (LCM burst mode) to increase efficiency at light load, and a low-noise-mode (LNM with fixed PWM switching frequency) for noise-sensitive designs.

They all feature:

  • 4 V to 38 V input voltage (VIN ) and output voltage adjustable from 0.85 V up-to VIN
  • Quiescent current as low as 30 μA at light load and 8 μA at shut down
  • Adjustable switching frequency (up to 2 MHz)
  • Embedded output voltage supervisor, synchronization and output voltage sequencing
  • On-chip current limiting, over-voltage protection, thermal shutdown and adjustable soft-start time

An easy-to-use evaluation board (STEVAL-ISA156V1) based on the L6986 regulator is available to help you configure and evaluate application parameters so you can reach higher efficiency, higher power density and lower standby power designs.
