Qorvo's ACT4526 is a wide input voltage, high efficiency step-down DC/DC converter that operates in either CV (Constant Output Voltage) mode or CC (Constant Output Current) mode.
ACT4526 has built-in QC2.0 decoding to provide 5.1 / 9.1 / 12.1 V outputs as requested by attached portable devices. The product has accurate output current limits under constant current regulation to meet the MFi specification.
The product provides up to 3.0 A output current at 125 kHz switching frequency. ACT4526 utilizes an adaptive drive technique to achieve good EMI performance while maintaining greater than 90% efficiency at full load for mini-size CLA designs. ACT4526 also has output short circuit protection with hiccup mode. The average output current is reduced to below 6 mA when output is shorted to ground. Other features include output over-voltage protection and thermal shutdown.
ACT4526 is available in a SOP-8EP package and requires very few external devices for operation.
