Description

The LTC3545/LTC3545-1 are triple, high efficiency, monolithic synchronous buck regulators using a constant frequency, current mode architecture. The regulators operate independently with separate run pins. The 2.25V to 5.5V input voltage range makes the LTC3545/LTC3545-1 well suited for single Li-Ion battery-powered applications. Low ripple pulse skip mode or high efficiency Burst Mode operation is externally selectable. PWM pulse skip mode operation provides very low output ripple voltage while Burst Mode operation increases efficiency at low output loads.

Switching frequency is internally set to 2.25MHz, or the switching frequency can be synchronized to an external 1MHz to 3MHz clock. Power good indicators easily allow power on sequencing between the three regulators.

The internal synchronous switches increase efficiency and eliminate external Schottky diodes. Low output voltages are supported with the 0.6V feedback reference voltage.

The LTC3545-1 replaces the SYNC/MODE function with a third PGOOD pin and forces Burst Mode operation.
