MP2384 vs MP2384C

I see an evaluation board for the MP2384 (EV2384) but not one for the MP2384C. Is there any appreciable difference between them and is the MP2384C a drop in replacement for the MP2384?

Hello jg1996business,

The MP2384C has forced continuous conduction mode (FCCM) while the MP2384 does not.

The MP2384C and the MP2384 are pin to pin and can be dropped in. However, the performance will not be the same at light loads. The MP2384C will have a better vout ripple due to FCCM, but a worse efficiency. The MP2384 will have a efficiency, but worse vout ripple due to no pulse skip mode at light loads.

Thank you,

Perfect! Thank you so much!
