General Description
The MAX1907A/MAX1981A are single-phase, Quick-PWM™ master controllers for IMVP-IV™ CPU core supplies. Multi-phase operation is achieved using a Quick-PWM slave controller (MAX1980). Multiphase operation reduces input ripple current requirements and output voltage ripple while easing component selection and layout difficulties. The MAX1907A/MAX1981A include active voltage positioning with adjustable gain and offset, reducing power dissipation and bulk output capacitance requirements.
The MAX1907A/MAX1981A are intended for two different notebook CPU core applications: either bucking down the battery directly, or 5V system supply to create the core voltage. The single-stage conversion method allows these devices to directly step down high-voltage batteries for the highest possible efficiency. Alternatively, two-stage conversion (stepping down the 5V system supply instead of the battery) at higher switching frequency provides the minimum possible physical size.
The MAX1907A/MAX1981A meet the IMVP-IV specifications and include logic to interface with the CPU power good signals from the VCCP and VCCMCH rails within the system. The regulator features power-up sequencing, automatically ramping up to the Intel-specified boot voltage. The MAX1907A/MAX1981A feature independent four-level logic inputs for setting the boot voltage (B0–B2) and the suspend voltage (S0–S2).
The MAX1907A/MAX1981A include output undervoltage protection, thermal protection, and system power-OK (SYSPOK) input/output. When any of these protection features detect a fault, the MAX1907A/MAX1981A immediately shut down. Additionally, the MAX1907A includes overvoltage protection.
The MAX1907A/MAX1981A are available in a thin 40-pin QFN package.
