Fixed output step-down switching voltage regulator offers desirable transient response.

Fairchild Semiconductor's FAN5358 is a step-down switching voltage regulator that delivers a fixed output from an input voltage supply of 2.7 V to 5.5 V. Using a proprietary architecture with synchronous rectification, the device is capable of delivering 500 mA and maintaining a very high efficiency of over 80 percent at load currents as low as 1 mA. At moderate and light loads, the FAN5358 uses pulse frequency modulation to operate the device in power-save mode, consuming low quiescent current (25 [micro]A typical) while providing desirable transient response during large load swings.
