The LTC3775 is a high efficiency synchronous step-down switching DC/DC controller that drives an all N-channel power MOSFET stage from a 4.5V to 38V input supply voltage. A patented line feedforward compensation circuit and a high bandwidth error amplifier provide very fast line and load transient response.

High step-down ratios are made possible by a low 30ns minimum on-time, allowing extremely low duty cycles. MOSFET RDS(ON) current sensing maximizes efficiency. Alternatively, a sense resistor can be used for higher current limit accuracy. Continuous monitoring of the voltages across the top and bottom MOSFETs allows cycle-by-cycle control of the inductor current, configurable by external resistors.

The soft-start function controls the duty cycle during start-up, providing a smooth output voltage ramp up. The operating frequency is user programmable from 250kHz to 1MHz and can be synchronized to an external clock.
