Step-Down Regulator with Auto-Bypass LDO for Multi-Band/Mode RF Power AmplifiersThe SKY87000-13 dynamically controls the operating voltage of a multi-mode WCDMA or GSM/EDGE Power Amplifier (PA) solution. The SKY87000-13 outputs a voltage between 0.40 V and 4.25 V, giving optimum efficiency for all operating states.
The output voltage of the device is controlled by an analog signal from the baseband processor. The SKY87000-13 can support up to 2 A of total load current with step-down and bypass regulators. The 2 MHz switching frequency is optimized for a typical 2.2 μH inductor and reduced output capacitance.
To further improve system performance, an 85 mΩ bypass linear regulator is included that allows the PA to be powered directly from the battery. The bypass regulator output voltage is offset from the step-down regulator, which improves extreme load transient and dynamic output transition performance.
The SKY87000-13 is available in a 9-bump Wafer Level Chip Scale Package (WLCSP) with 0.5 mm pin pitch.
