Monolithic Step-Down DC-DC Converter with High-Accuracy Power Good
Automotive ECU, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)


Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation, (AKM), has launched the AP3440 series, 4.5A drive high-efficiency DC-DC converter for automotive ECU applications requiring high-speed processing.

The AP3440 integrates a high-precision power good function. It is suitable for a power supply of CPU core and DDR that are used in a high reliability required system such as ADAS.
The AP3440 series is available in 1.112V, 1.227V, 1.822V output voltage to meet various system requirements.

● Supporting High Reliability Systems

The output voltage is constantly monitored by ±2% high precision power good function. When the output voltage is in an abnormal state, the AP3440 sends the error flag signal to microcomputers promptly. It supports a fail-safe environment with appropriate data saving processing.

● Downsizing PCB

The AP3440 integrates a MOSFET that can supply maximum output current of 4.5A in a 5mm × 5mm 28-pin QFN package with a heat dissipation pad on the back surface. 2.1MHz operation helps miniaturizing peripheral components. Therefore, a printed circuit board can be downsized.

● 150°C warranty

Electrical characteristics are guaranteed in Tj = -40 to 150°C, assuming operation environments that require high reliability.
