High Efficiency Single Synchronous Buck PWM Controller


Update Alert Share

The RT8129A is a high efficiency single phase synchronous buck controller with 5V/12V supply voltage. The RT8129A integrates a Constant-On-Time (COT) PWM controller and a MOSFET drivers with internal bootstrap diodes, which is specifically designed to improve converter efficiency at light load condition. At light load condition, it automatically operates in the diode emulation mode to reduce switching frequency and improve conversion efficiency.

Other features include power good indication, enable/disable control and internal soft-start function. The RT8129A also provide protection functions including Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Under Voltage Protection (UVP), current limit and thermal shutdown.

This device uses lossless low-side MOSFET RDS(ON) current sense technique for current limit with adjustable threshold set by connecting a resistor between the LGATE/OCSET and GND.

With above functions, the RT8129A provides customers a cost-effective solution for high efficiency power conversion. The RT8129A is available in the WDFN-10L 3x3 package.
