A4450: Buck-Boost Controller with Integrated Buck MOSFET

Description

The A4450 is a power management IC that can implement either a buck or buck-boost regulator to efficiently convert automotive battery voltages into a tightly regulated voltage. It includes control, diagnostics, and protection functions.

 An enable input to the A4450 is compatible to a high-voltage battery level, (EN).

 A diagnostic output from the A4450 includes a power-on reset output (NPOR) signal.

 Protection features include pulse-by-pulse current limit, hiccup mode short-circuit protection, LX short-circuit protection, missing freewheeling diode (buck diode at LX node in A4450) protection, and thermal shutdown.

 The A4450 is most suitable for applications where the input voltage can vary from less than or greater than the regulated output voltage.

 The A4450 is supplied in 4 × 4 mm QFN (suffix “ES”) with exposed power pad.
