I am finding it hard to find a suitable buck

(1/3) > >>

Hello there,

I am finding it hard to locate a buck controller which is suitable for my specs. I want to drive the V-out setting from MCU. I would like to avoid digital pot. Driving it with pwm from MCU through a buffer would be excellent. But then I expect it will be easier to get it stable with a buck with a ref-out (this seems to be very hard to find).  These are the specs:

- External N-FETs
- Vout max of minimum 15V
- Iout max of minimum 6.5A
- Surface mount package with exposed pins (not QFN and similar)
- Available@ farnell

- Less than 500KHz
- Synchronous

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

Need a few more details, like input voltage range, output voltage range, how well regulated do you want the output and what space limitations do you have?

Thanks Richard,

Off topic: I have worked loads on the voltage reference you helped with, but I have some problems with it which i have failed to fix. I will find time to do it today :D

Input voltage range: 18-17V
Output range: ~1-15V
Space: board size about the same as a credit card.

I am hoping for 5mv Vpp.M

How about an LM25085?

well there's your problem.... why do you limit yourself like that...
go with digikey or mouser. they have 100.000 times more parts than farnell..

Exar has a couple of really cool ones. with external fets. programmable over i2c ... with controlled startup slope and shutdown slope.
