R1242 Series

3A 30V Input PWM Step-down DC/DC Converter with Synchronous Rectifier Ext. Low-side Tr.

  • Consumer
  • RoHS

The R1242 Series are 30V input, CMOS-based PWM step-down DC/DC converters featuring 3A* output current. R1242 includes a soft start circuit and a latch or fold-back protection circuit. By simply using an inductor, resistors, a low side switch (FET), and capacitors as external components, a high-efficiency step-down DC/DC converter can be easily configured. Due to current mode PWM control, the R1242 provides a fast response and high efficiency.

*) This is an approximate value, because output current depending on conditions and external parts.
