The 33730 is a multiple output power supply integrated circuit for automotive applications.
The integrated circuit (IC) incorporates a switching regulator which operates over a wide input
voltage range from +4.5V to +26.5V.
The step-down switching regulator uses a fixed frequency PWM voltage mode control. It has a 3.5A
current limit (typical) and the slew-rate is adjustable via a control pin to reduce switching noise.
The switching regulator has an adjustable frequency oscillator, which allows the user to optimize its
operation over a wide range of input voltages and component values.
The linear regulators can be configured either as two normal mode regulators (VDD3, VDDL) and one
standby regulator (VKAM), or as one normal mode linear regulator (VDDL) and two standby regulators
(VKAM and VDD3 Standby). Two protected outputs [VREF (1, 2)] are used to provide power to external sensors.
