The NCP3233 is a 20 A step down converter (with internal MOSFETs) capable of operating from 3V to 21 V without the need for an external bias. This fixed frequency converter offers high efficiency and the output can be adjusted to offer a voltage as low as 0.6 V. An adjustable current limit allows the device to be used for multiple current levels. The part is offered is a thermally enhanced 6 mm by 6 mm QFN package. The NCP3233 is a high current, high efficiency voltage-mode synchronous buck converter which operates from 3 V to 21 V input and generates output voltages down to 0.6 V at up to 25 A DC load or 30 A instantaneous load.
