The converters use a constant-frequency, pulse-width modulating (PWM), peak current-mode control architecture. There are multiple versions of the devices offering one or more of the following functions: a synchronization output (SYNCO) for 180° out-of-phase operation, an overvoltage protection function using a separate input pin (OVP), and a reference input pin to allow on-the-fly output voltage adjustment.


The MAX17290 and MAX17292 operate in different frequency ranges. All versions can be synchronized to an external master clock. The devices are available in 12-pin (3 x 3 mm) TQFN and 10-pin μMAX packages. Both packages have exposed pads for -40°C to +85°C operation. Use it, Maxim suggests, in distributed supply regulation; general-purpose point-of-load; offline power supplies; and telecom hardware
