36V, 6A Peak, Buck-Boost Converter with I2C Interface for Power Delivery

March 14, 2020 by Paul Shepard

The MP4245 from Monolithic Power Systems is a buck-boost converter with 4 integrated power switches. The device can deliver up to 6A output current at certain input-supply range with excellent load and line regulation.

The MP4245 is suitable for USB power delivery (USB PD) application. It can work well with external USB PD controller through I2C interface.

The I2C interface and MTP (2 times programmable) provide flexibility of programmable features. Fault condition protection includes CC current limiting, output OVP, and thermal shutdown (TSD).

The MP4245 requires a minimum number of readily available, standard, external components. The MP4245 is available in a QFN21 (4mm x 5mm) package.
