Qorvo's ACT4501 is a dedicated cost-effective DC/DC converter for 5 V / 1 A car charger applications with a wide input voltage and high efficiency. The converter operates in either CV (Constant Output Voltage) mode or CC (Constant Output Current) mode. ACT4501 provides up to 1.25 A output current at 125 kHz switching frequency.
Active CC is a patent-pending control scheme to achieve high accuracy sensorless constant current control. Active CC eliminates the expensive, high accuracy current sense resistor, making it ideal for battery charging applications and high-brightness LED drivers for architectural lighting.
The product achieves higher efficiency than traditional constant current switching regulators by eliminating the sense resistor and its associated power loss. Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit, thermal shutdown, and frequency foldback at short circuit.
ACT4501 is available in a SOP-8 package and requires very few external components for operation.
