The 2.2MHz pre-regulator in the ARG82800 uses a buck or buck/boost topology to efficiently convert automotive battery voltages into a tightly regulated intermediate voltage complete with control, diagnostics, and protections and so is aimed at the automotive market with end applications to include electronic power steering (EPS), transmission control units (TCU), and advanced braking systems (ABS).
The output of the pre-regulator supplies a 3.3 V or 5.0 V selectable 350 mA linear regulator, a 5 V / 100 mA linear regulator, and two 120 mA protected linear regulators which track VUC output. It is designed to supply power for microprocessors, sensors, and CAN transceivers in ASIL-D/ISO26262 applications in the engine compartment and is AEC-Q100 qualified.
The independent floating gate drivers have the capability of controlling N-channel MOSFETs through SPI. These MOSFETs can be configured as phase or battery isolation devices in high current motor applications. An integrated charge pump allows the driver outputs to maintain the power MOSFETs in the on state over the full supply range with high phase-voltage slew rates. It includes a logic level (ENB) and a high voltage key-switch enable (ENBAT) and also provides flexibility with a disable function of the individual outputs through a serial peripheral interface (SPI).
Diagnostic outputs from the device include a power-on reset output (NPOR) and a fault flag output (FFn) to alert the microprocessor that a fault has occurred. The microprocessor can read fault status through SPI. Dual bandgaps (one for regulation and one for fault checking), BIST, and a myriad of internal diagnostics enhance Functional Safety (FuSa) coverage for critical automotive applications.
The ARG82800 is supplied in a low-profile (1.2 mm maximum height) 38-lead eTSSOP package (suffix “LV”) with exposed power pad for enhanced thermal performance.
