The switching frequency of the device can be configured from 500kHz to 2.0MHz. It provides the capability of optimizing the design in terms of solution size and performance. The MAX16712 utilizes fixed-frequency, current-mode control with internal compensation. The dual-switching regulators operate 180° out-of-phase. The IC features an advanced modulation scheme (AMS) and selectable discontinuous current mode (DCM) operation to improve performance. Operation settings and configurable features can also be selected by connecting a pin-strap resistor from the PGM0 pin to ground.
The Analog Devices MAX16712 has an internal 1.8V LDO output to power the gate drives (VCC) and internal circuitry (AVDD). The module integrates multiple protections, including positive and negative overcurrent protection, output overvoltage protection, and overtemperature protection to ensure a robust design. The device is available in a compact 2.2mm x 3.5mm wafer-level package (WLP). It supports -40°C to +125°C junction temperature operation.
