The LTC®3646 is a high efficiency, step-down DC/DC converter with internal high side and synchronous power FETs. It draws only 140μA typical DC supply current in Burst Mode operation at no load while maintaining output voltage regulation.
The LTC3646 can supply up to a 1A load, and its combination of Burst Mode operation, integrated power switches and low quiescent current provides high efficiency over a broad range of load currents. Alternatively, it can be used in forced continuous mode for ripple sensitive applications.
The LTC3646 has a wide 4.0V to 40V input range and its patented controlled on-time architecture and 0.6V reference voltage allow for large step-down ratios without the risk of output overvoltage. The frequency may be set between 200kHz and 3.0MHz with a program resistor or synchronized to an external clock.
The internal soft-start, short-circuit protection and voltage rating make the LTC3646 a robust part ideal for high voltage applications.
