ACT4523 is a wide input voltage, high efficiency Active CC step-down DC/DC converter that operates in either CV (Constant Output Voltage) mode or CC (Constant Output Current) mode. ACT4523 provides up to 3A output current at 225kHz switching frequency. Active CC is a patent-pending control scheme to achieve highest accuracy sensorless constant current control. Active CC eliminates the expensive, high accuracy current sense resistor, making it ideal for battery charging  applications and adaptors with accurate current limit. The ACT4523 achieves higher efficiency than traditional constant current switching regulators by eliminating its associated power loss. Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current
limit, thermal shutdown, and frequency foldback at short circuit.

The ACT4523 is available in a SOP-8EP package and require very few external components for operation.
