17V, Synchronous Step-Down Regulator Delivers Dual 1A Outputs & Requires Only 5µA of Quiescent Current

MILPITAS, CA - July 24, 2014 - The LTC3622 is a high efficiency, 17V input capable synchronous buck regulator from Linear Technology that delivers dual 1A continuous current to outputs as low as 0.6V. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiencies as high as 95%, while Burst Mode® operation requires only 5µA of no load quiescent current. The LTC3622 switches at a fixed 1MHz frequency, whereas the LTC3622-2 switches at 2.25MHz. Their constant frequency, current-mode architecture minimizes switching noise while offering very fast line and load transient response. The LTC3622/-2 operates from an input voltage range of 2.7V to 17V, making it ideal for single or dual cell Li-Ion applications as well as 5V or 12V intermediate bus systems. The combination of its 3mm x 4mm DFN package, high switching frequency and tiny, low cost capacitors and inductors ensures a highly compact solution footprint.

5A, 15V 2-Phase Synchronous Boost Regulator Offers 95% Efficiency, 3MHz Switching & Output Disconnect in a 3mm x 5mm DFN

MILPITAS, CA - July 8, 2014 - Linear Technology Corporation announces the LTC3124, a dual-phase, 3MHz, current-mode, synchronous boost DC/DC converter with output disconnect and inrush current limiting. Dual-phase operation significantly reduces peak inductor and capacitor ripple currents, minimizing component size while delivering lower output ripple versus an equivalent single-phase device. Its internal 2.5A per phase capable switches together deliver 5A of switch current. These 18V switches can deliver output voltages as high as 15V from an input voltage range of 1.8V at start-up (0.5V when running) to 5.5V, making it ideal for supercapacitor-based backup power systems and Li-Ion/Polymer or multicell NiMH applications. The LTC3124 delivers up to 1.5A of continuous output current at 12V from a 5V input. Synchronous rectification enables efficiencies up to 95%, while Burst Mode® operation lowers quiescent current to only 25µA, providing extended battery run time. The combination of its thermally enhanced 3mm x 5mm DFN-16 (or TSSOP-16) package and a constant switching frequency of up to 3MHz, which minimizes both inductor and capacitor size, provides a compact solution footprint required in handheld applications.
