Stacked Transistor in a High-Side Buck to Increase Input Voltage Range

This Circuit Idea presents an implementation of stacking an external transistor, such as a MOSFET, in series with a high side switch of a buck regulator. The stacked MOSFET could expand the operational input voltage range of the PI LinkSwitch-TN2Q integrated buck controller beyond the typical operating input range for the device
