ACT4523A is a wide input voltage, high efficiency ActiveCC step-down DC/DC converter that operates in either CV (Constant Output Voltage) mode or CC (Constant Output Current) mode. ACT4523A provides up to 3.5A output current at 250kHz switching frequency. Active CC is a patented control scheme to achieve highest accuracy with sensorless constant current control. ActiveCC eliminates the expensive, high accuracy current sense resistor, making it ideal for battery charging applications and adaptors with accurate current limit. The ACT4523A achieves higher efficiency than traditional constant current switching regulators by eliminating its associated power loss on the sensing resistor. ACT4523A provides OVP pin for output over voltage protection. Protection features include cycle-by-cycle current limit, thermal shutdown, and frequency foldback at short circuit.

The ACT4523A is available in a SOP-8EP package and require very few external components for operation.
