ZSPM4022-12
12V/12A Synchronous DC/DC Buck Regulator
Brief Description
Benefits
The ZSPM4022-12 is a constant-frequency, synchronous DC/DC buck regulator featuring adaptive
on-time control architecture. The ZSPM4022-12
operates over a 4.5V to 19V supply range (12V typical). It has an internal linear regulator that provides a
regulated 5V to power the internal control circuitry.
The ZSPM4022-12 operates at a constant 600kHz
(typical) switching frequency in continuousconduction mode and can be used to provide up to
12A of output current. The output voltage is adjustable from 5.5V down to 0.8V.

Under medium to heavy loads, the ZSPM4022-12
provides high efficiency and ultra-fast transient response via its rapid-control architecture. Under light
load conditions, it maintains high efficiency and a
superior transient response by transitioning to
variable-frequency, discontinuous mode operation
with its ultra-light-load architecture.
The ZSPM4022-12 offers a full suite of protection
features to ensure protection of the IC during fault
conditions. These include under-voltage lockout to
ensure proper operation under power-sag conditions; thermal shutdown; internal soft-start to
reduce inrush current; foldback current limiting; and
“hiccup” mode short-circuit protection. The
ZSPM4022-12 includes a power good (PG) output to
allow simple sequencing.
