The LT®8610A/LT8610AB series are compact, high efficiency, high speed synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulators that consume only 2.5μA of quiescent current. Compared to the LT8610, they have higher maximum output currents of 3.5A and a faster minimum switch-on time of 30ns. The LT8610A has the same low ripple burst mode performance of the LT8610, while the LT8610AB has even higher light load efficiency.
The other features of the LT8610 remain unchanged in the LT8610A/LT8610AB series. A SYNC pin allows synchronization to an external clock. The EN/UV pin has an accurate 1V threshold for VIN undervoltage lockout or shut down. A capacitor on the TR/SS pin programs the output voltage ramp rate during startup. The PG flag signals when VOUT is within ±9% of the programmed output voltage as well as fault conditions.
