PWM Control & PWM/PFM Control High Frequency Step-Up Switching Regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) S-8340/8341 Series

The S-8340/8341 series consists of CMOS step-up switching regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs)-controllers with PWM control (S-8340) and PWM/PFM switched control (S-8341). These devices contain a reference voltage source, oscillation circuit, error amplifier, phase compensation circuit, PWM control circuit, and other components. Since the oscillation frequency is a high 300 kHz or 600 kHz, with the addition of a small external component, the ICs can function as step-up switching regulators with high efficiency and large output current. The speed of the output stage is enhanced so that the Nch power MOS with a low ON resistance can be switched quickly.
The S-8340 provides low-ripple power, high-efficiency, and excellent transient characteristics thanks to a PMW control circuit capable of varying the duty ratio linearly from 0% to 82% and optimized error amplifier, and phase compensation circuit.
The S-8341 contains a PWM/PFM switching control circuit so that it operates using PWM control with a duty ratio of 27% or higher and using PFM control with a duty ratio of lower than 27% to ensure high efficiency in all load ranges. These ICs serve as ideal main power supply units for portable devices when coupled with the 8-pin TSSOP package and high oscillation frequencies.
we offer a simulation software as a support tool for circuit design where switching regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) is used.
