Motherboard Power Supply Solution With A 5-Bit Programmable Switching Controller And Two Linear Regulator Controllers
The LM2638 provides a comprehensive embedded power supply solution for motherboards hosting high performance MPUs such as Pentium? II, M II?, K6?-2 and other similar high performance MPUs. The LM2638 incorporates a 5-bit programmable, synchronous buck switching controller and two high-speed linear Regulator controllers in a 24-pin SO package. In a typical application, the switching controller supplies the MPU core, and the linear Regulator controllers supply the GTL+ bus and the Clock or graphics chip core. A Charge Pump pin helps provide the necessary voltage to power the linear sections when 12V is shut off during system standby such as STR mode.
Switching Section - The Switching Regulator controller features an Intel-compatible, 5-bit programmable output voltage, over-current and over-voltage protection, a power good signal, and a logic-controlled output enable. There are two user-selectable over-current protection methods. One provides accurate over-current protection with the use of an external sense resistor. The other saves cost by taking advantage of the rDS[lowbar]ON of the high-side FET When there is an over voltage, the controller turns off the high side FET and turns on the low side.
Linear Section - The two linear Regulator controllers feature wide control bandwidth, N-FET and NPN Transistor driving capability and an adjustable output. The wide control bandwidth makes meeting the GTL+ bus transient response requirement an easy job. In minimum configuration, the two controllers default to 1.5V and 1.25V respectively.
Both linear controllers have under voltage latch-off.
