The MAX20047 by Maxim Integrated is a cost-effective, automotive-grade dual-port charger IC with a very small footprint. It has specifically designed for automotive based charging applications. It is equipped with a 6A step-down buck converter with integrated high-side and low-side FETs. This combination allows it to operate within an input voltage range of 3.5V – 36V and gives out an output voltage of 5.2V.
What can it do?
The MAX20047 is capable of delivering up to 3A charging current along with 93% improved efficiency per port. It achieves this level of efficiency with the help of integrated switches featuring programmable current limit as well as thermal feedback control. The switching frequency of the buck converter can be programmed from 0.4MHz -2.2MHz.
Maxim is also offering short-to-ground and overcurrent protection on the secured HVBUS outputs that can protect the internal BUS power rail from any kind of overcurrent fault.
