Description

The LTC3544 is a quad, high efficiency, monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a constant-frequency, current mode architecture. The four regulators operate independently with separate run pins. The 2.25V to 5.5V input voltage range makes the LTC3544 well suited for single Li-Ion/polymer battery-powered applications. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout operation, extending battery runtime in portable systems. Low ripple Burst Mode® operation increases efficiency at light loads, further extending battery runtime with typically only 20mV of ripple.

Switching frequency is internally set to 2.25MHz, allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors. The internal synchronous switches increase efficiency and eliminate the need for external Schottky diodes. Low output voltages are easily supported with the 0.8V feedback reference voltage.

The LTC3544 is available in a low profile (0.75mm) (3mm × 3mm) QFN package.
