Data Sheet

Data Sheet

The R1270S is CMOS-based Step-down DC/DC converter with internal N-channel high side Tr. The ON resistance of the built-in high-side transistor is 0.10Ω and the R1270S can provide the maximum 3A output current. Each of the ICs consists of an oscillator, a PWM control circuit, a voltage reference unit, an error amplifier, a phase compensation circuit, a slope compensation circuit, a soft-start circuit, protection circuits, an internal voltage regulator, and a switch for bootstrap circuit. The ICs can make up a step-down DC/DC converter with adding an inductor, resistors, a diode, and capacitors externally.
The R1270S is current mode operating type DC/DC converters without an external current sense resistor, and realizes fast response and high efficiency. As an output capacitor, a ceramic type capacitor is usable. The internal oscillator frequency is adjustable over a range of 300kHz to 2400kHz by an external resistor, and also can be synchronized externally by PLL.
The phase compensation is adjustable by using external resistor and capacitor. Thereby optimizations for the inductor and the capacitor can be done.
To improve performance under light load conditions, the R1270S can select automatically between two modes: the VFM mode when the inductor current is discontinuous and the PWM mode when the inductor current is continuous. The ripple voltage at VFM mode is 40mV (Typ.).
As for protection, the R1270S has a current limit function to control an inductor peak current every a cycle, a fold-back function to reduce the oscillator frequency under the short circuit, a thermal shutdown function, an under voltage lockout (UVLO) function, and an over voltage lockout (OVLO) function. Furthermore, the R1270S can include a latch protection function to cut off the output when the output current reaches the set current limit for a certain time. That is, the R1270S supports two types of the presence (R1270S001A) or the absence (R1270S001B) of the latch protection function. The current limit, which is fixed at 4.5A (Typ.), is adjustable by an external resistor.
The soft start time is fixed at 0.4ms (Typ.) internally, but is adjustable by an external resistor. And, the R1270S has the FLG pin to monitor the overvoltage of the FB pin voltage and the 6V rated pin.When detecting an abnormal voltage, the R1270S outputs a flag.
The R1270S is available in HSOP-18 package.
