Smallest, All-Internal MOSFET, 7-Channel
DSC PMIC in Tiny 5mm x 5mm Thin QFN
The MAX8680 highly efficient complete power-supply
solution is designed for digital still cameras (DSCs) and
digital video cameras (DVCs). The device integrates
seven on-chip power MOSFET DC-DC converters with
up to 95% efficiency to power all critical power supplies
in DSC systems. Each converter also features True
Shutdown™, as well as internal compensation to mini-
mize external component count. The seven DC-DC
converter outputs are:
• Step-up synchronous-rectified DC-DC converter
(SU). The MAX8680 is bootstrapped from VSU.
• MAIN synchronous-rectified step-down DC-DC con-
verter (M) for DSP I/O supply voltage.
• DDRZ synchronous-rectified step-down DC-DC
converter (Z) for DSP DDR supply voltage.
• Low-voltage (down to 1V) synchronous-rectified
step-down DC-DC converter (SD) for DSP core sup-
• High-voltage, step-up DC-DC converter with current
regulation and PWM dimming control (LEDBST) for
white LEDs (WLED).
• High-voltage step-up DC-DC converter (CCDBST)
for CCD imagers or positive LCD bias supplies.
• Transformerless inverting DC-DC converter (CCDINV)
for CCD imagers or negative LCD bias supplies.
The MAX8680 has an independent/simultaneous
power-on sequence of the CCDBST and CCDINV con-
verters. For a preset power-on sequence of CCDBST
before CCDINV, contact the factory.
The MAX8680 operates with 1-cell lithium-ion (Li+) bat-
tery, two-AA cell, or dual-battery designs and is avail-
able in a 5mm x 5mm, 40-pin thin QFN package. The
MAX8680 operates over the -40°C to +85°C extended
