DescriptionThe LTC1877 s a high efficiency monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a constant-frequency, current mode architecture. Supply current during operation is only 10μA and drops to < 1μA in shutdown. The 2.65V to 10V input voltage range makes the LTC1877 ideally suited for both single and dual Li-Ion battery-powered applications. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout operation, extending battery life in portable systems.
Switching frequency is internally set at 550kHz, allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors. For noise sensitive applications the LTC1877 can be externally synchronized from 400kHz to 700kHz. Burst Mode operation is inhibited during synchronization or when the SYNC/MODE pin is pulled low, preventing low frequency ripple from interfering with audio circuitry.
The internal synchronous switch increases efficiency and eliminates the need for an external Schottky diode. Low output voltages are easily supported with the 0.8V feedback reference voltage. The LTC1877 is available in a space saving 8-lead MSOP package. Lower input voltage applications (less than 7V abs max) should refer to the LTC1878 data sheet.
