Super-Small Package PWM Control, PWM/PFM Control Step-Up Switching Regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) S-8353/8354 Series

The S-8353/54 Series is a CMOS step-up switching regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) which mainly consists of a reference voltage source, an oscillation circuit, a power MOS FET, an error amplifier, a phase compensation circuit, a PWM controller (S-8353) and a PWM/PFM switching controller (S-8354).
The step-up switching regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) can be configured simply by attaching a coil, capacitor, and diode externally. In addition to the above features, the small package and low power consumption of this series make it ideal for portable device applications requiring high efficiency.
The S-8353 Series realizes low ripple, high efficiency, and excellent transient characteristics due to its PWM controller, which can vary the duty ratio linearly from 0% to 83% (from 0% to 78% for 250 kHz models), optimally-designed error amplifier, and phase compensation circuits.
The S-8354 Series features a PWM/PFM switching controller that can switch the operation to a PFM controller with a duty ratio is 15% under a light load to prevent a decline in the efficiency due to the IC operating current.
