D36V28Fx Step-Down Voltage Regulators

Step-Down Voltage Regulator D36V28Fx, assembled on breadboard.

The D36V28Fx family of buck (step-down) voltage regulators generates lower output voltages from input voltages as high as 50 V. They are switching regulators (also called switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) or DC-to-DC converters), which makes them much more efficient than linear voltage regulators, especially when the difference between the input and output voltage is large. These regulators can typically support continuous output currents between 2 A and 4 A, depending on the input voltage and output voltage (see Maximum continuous output current graphs on the product pages for more information). In general, the available output current is a little higher for the lower-voltage versions than it is for the higher-voltage versions, and it decreases as the input voltage increases.

This family includes six versions with fixed output voltages ranging from 3.3 V to 12 V:

The regulators have reverse voltage protection up to 40 V, output undervoltage and overvoltage protection, over-current protection, and short-circuit protection. A thermal shutdown feature also helps prevent damage from overheating and a soft-start feature limits the inrush current and gradually ramps the output voltage on startup.

This small synchronous switching step-down (or buck) regulator takes an input voltage from 4.5 V to 50 V and efficiently reduces it to 3.3 V. The board measures only 0.7″ × 0.8″ yet delivers typical maximum continuous output currents between 3.2 A and 4.5 A, depending on the input voltage, which makes it well suited for powering moderate loads like sensors or small motors. An optional enable input can be used to put the regulator in a low-power state with a current draw of 10 µA to 20 µA per volt on VIN. The regulator also features reverse voltage protection and a power-good output that indicates when the regulator cannot adequately maintain the output voltage. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.
