Qorvo's ACT4533A is a wide input voltage, high efficiency Active CC step-down DC/DC converter that operates in either CV (Constant Output Voltage) mode or CC (Constant Output Current) mode. ACT4533A provides up to 3.5 A output current at 125 kHz switching frequency.
Active CC is a patented control scheme to achieve high-accuracy sensorless constant current control. Active CC eliminates the expensive, high accuracy current sense resistor, making it ideal for Cigarette Lighter Adapter (CLA) applications.
ACT4533A integrates adaptive gate drive to achieve excellent EMI performance, passing the EN55022 Class B EMC standard without adding additional EMI components while maintaining high conversion efficiency.
Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit, thermal shutdown and frequency foldback at short circuit.
The only difference between ACT4533A and ACT4533B is that Pin 7 provides OVP for ACT4533A and EN/OVP for ACT4533B.
ACT4533A is available in a SOP-8EP package and require very few external components for operation.
