The HT71678 is a high-power density, fully integrated synchronous boost converter with a 16mΩ power switch and a 23mΩ rectifier switch to provide a high efficiency and small size solution in portable systems. The HT71678 has wide input voltage range from 2.7 V to 12.2 V to support applications with single cell and two cell Lithium batteries. The device has 12A switch current capability and can provide an output voltage up to 12.8V.
The HT71678 integrates audio detection which receives the audio signal to change the output voltage in accordance with audio amplitude, so that the system efficiency will be improved. There are 10 different modes that can be selected with different output voltages.
The HT71678 uses adaptive constant off-time peak current control topology to regulate the output voltage. In moderate to heavy load condition, it works in the PWM mode. In light load condition, the device has two operation modes selected by the MODE pin. One is PFM mode to improve the efficiency and another one is the forced PWM mode to avoid application problems caused by low switching frequency. The switching frequency in the PWM mode is adjustable ranging from 200kHz to 1.4MHz by an external resistor.
The HT71678 also implements a programmable soft-start function and an adjustable switching peak current limit function. In addition, the device provides 14V output overvoltage protection, cycle-by-cycle overcurrent protection, and thermal shutdown protection.
