LTC3857EUH Integrated Circuits Linear Technology





The  LTC®3857  is  a  high  performance  dual  step-down  switching  regulator  controller  that  drives  all  N-channel  synchronous power MOSFET stages. A constant frequency current  mode  architecture  allows  a  phase-lockable  fre-quency of up to 850kHz. Power loss and noise due to the ESR of the input capacitor ESR are minimized by operating the two controller output stages out of phase.

The 50μA no-load quiescent current extends operating run time in battery-powered systems. The LTC3857 features a precision 0.8V reference and power good output indicators. A wide 4V to 38V input supply range encompasses a wide range of intermediate bus voltages and battery chemistries.

Independent TRACK/SS pins for each controller ramp the output voltages during start-up. Current foldback limits MOSFET heat dissipation during short-circuit conditions. The PLLIN/MODE pin selects among Burst Mode opera-tion, pulse-skipping mode, or continuous inductor current mode at light loads. 

For a leaded 28-lead SSOP package with a fixed current limit and one PGOOD output, without phase modulation or a clock output, see the LTC3857-1 data sheet.
