Super-Small Package PWM Control, PWM/PFM Control Step-Up Switching Regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) S-8355/56/57/58 Series

The S-8355/56/57/58 Series is a CMOS step-up switching regulator (DC-DC Converter ICs) which mainly consists of a reference voltage source, an oscillation circuit, an error amplifier, a phase compensation circuit, a PWM control circuit (S-8355/57) and a PWM/PFM switching control circuit (S-8356/58). With an external low-ON-resistance Nch Power MOS, this product is applicable to applications requiring high efficiency and high output current.
The S-8355/57 Series realizes low ripple, high efficiency, and excellent transient characteristics with the PWM control circuit whose duty ratio can vary from 0 % to 83 % (from 0 % to 78 % for 250 kHz and 300 kHz models), the best-designed error amplifier and phase compensation circuits.
The S-8356/58 Series switches its operation to the PFM control circuit whose duty ratio is 15 % with to the PWM/PFM switching control circuit under a light load and to prevent decline in the efficiency by IC operation current.
