Delivered in a small 2.5x2.0x1.0mm CL-2025-02 package, the small coil-integrated negative voltage micro DC/DC converter IC comes with increased oscillating frequency to 2.5MHz. Mounting area is reduced by approximately 78% compared to general negative voltage output DC/DC(from 65.25mm2 to 14.43mm2). Further, integrating the coil together with the DC/DC simplifies the circuit board layout and minimizes potential noise interference. Compared to a charge pump type solution, the switching method of the XCL303/XCL304 maintains a stable output voltage even when the input voltage fluctuates. In addition, this new micro DC/DC can support maximum output current 300mA (when VIN = 3.3V, VOUT = -3.0V). The PWM controlled XCL303 series can be selected for applications where low noise is important, and the PWM/PFM automatic switching controlled XCL304 series can be selected for applications where high efficiency at light load current and low noise at high load current is important. The XCL303/XCL304 series allows users to select either a PWM control or PWM/PFM automatic switching control method, which are optimum for low noise and small negative voltage devices such as optical communication equipment. Output voltage can be adjusted within the range of -1.2V to -6.0V using externally mounted resistors.
