General Descriptions:

The CN5208 is a switch-mode PWM step-down DC-DC controller using few external components.

It achieves 5A continuous output current over a wide input supply range with excellent load and line regulation. The output voltage is internally set  at 5V.

The high switching frequency of 550KHz allows tiny external components to be usable. The CN5208 is designed to be stable with ceramic output capacitor. Pulse skipping mode is adopted under light load for high efficiency. Furthermore, the low operating current and low dropout operation make the CN5208 is suitable for battery powered systems.

Fault protection includes cycle-by-cycle current limit, short output protection and output overvoltage protection. In shutdown mode, the CN5208 draws only 7.5μA(VCC=15V) of supply current. On-chip soft-start minimizes the inrush supply current and the output overshoot at initial startup.

The CN5208 is available in a space-saving 8-pin SOP package.
