ISL62386 High-Efficiency Quad Output System Power Supply Controller for Notebook Computers

The ISL62386 controller generates supply voltages for battery-powered systems. The ISL62386 includes two pulse-width modulation (PWM) controllers, adjustable from 0. 6V to 5. 5V, and two linear regulators, LDO5 and LDO3, that generate a fixed 5V output and a fixed 3. 3V output respectively. Each can deliver up to 100mA. The Channel 2 switching regula

tor will automatically take over the LDO5 load when programmed to 5V output. This provides a large power saving and boosts efficiency. The ISL62386 includes on-board power-up sequencing, one power-good (PGOOD) output, digital soft-start, and an internal soft-stop output discharge that prevents negative voltages on shutdown. The patented R3 PWM control scheme provides a low jitter system with fast response to load transients. Light-load efficiency is improved with period-stretching discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) operation. To eliminate noise in audio frequency applications, an ultrasonic DCM mode is included, which limits the minimum switching frequency to approximately 28kHz.
