MCP1632x Synchronous Buck Regulators

Microchip's MCP16321/2/3 highly integrated, high-efficiency, fixed frequency, synchronous step-down DC-DC converters are available in a 16-pin QFN package which operates from input voltages up to 18 V (MCP16323) and 24 V (MCP16321/2). Integrated features include a high-side and low-side N-channel switch, fixed frequency peak current mode Control, internal compensation, peak current limit, VOUT overvoltage protection, and over-temperature protection. Minimal external components are necessary to develop a complete synchronous, step-down DC-DC converter power supply.
