300kHz Dual, 180° Out-of-Phase, Step-
Down PWM Controller
The ISL6440 is a high-performance, dual-output PWM
controller optimized for converting wall adapter, battery or
network intermediate bus DC input supplies into the system
supply voltages required for a wide variety of applications.
Each output is adjustable down to 0.8V. The two PWMs are
synchronized 180o out of phase reducing the RMS input
current and ripple voltage.
The ISL6440 incorporates several protection features. An
adjustable overcurrent protection circuit monitors the output
current by sensing the voltage drop across the lower
MOSFET. Hiccup mode overcurrent operation protects the
DC/DC components from damage during output
overload/short circuit conditions. Each PWM has an
independent logic-level shutdown input (SD1 and SD2).
A single PGOOD signal is issued when soft-start is complete
on both PWM controllers and their outputs are within 10% of
the set point. Thermal shutdown circuitry turns off the device
if the junction temperature exceeds +150°C.

NOTE: Intersil Pb-free plus anneal products employ special Pb-free material
sets; molding compounds/die attach materials and 100% matte tin plate
termination finish, which are RoHS compliant and compatible with both SnPb
and Pb-free soldering operations. Intersil Pb-free products are MSL classified
at Pb-free peak reflow temperatures that meet or exceed the Pb-free
requirements of IPC/JEDEC J STD-020.
Add “-T” or “-TK” suffix for tape and reel.
CAUTION: These devices are sensitive to electrostatic discharge; follow proper IC Handling Procedures.
