AEC-Q100 data available for specific packages
The LTC®3853 is a high performance triple output stepdown switching regulator controller that drives all Nchannel synchronous power MOSFET stages. Power loss and supply noise are minimized by operating the output stages out of phase. The part can be configured as a dual phase controller plus a single phase controller if needed. The part can also be configured to provide a single 3-phase output for even higher output currents.
A wide 4.5V to 24V (28V maximum) input voltage supply range encompasses most battery chemistries and intermediate bus voltages. Phase 3 can regulate output voltages up to 13.5V. A constant-frequency current mode architecture allows for a phase-lockable frequency up to 750kHz.
Independent TK/SS pins for each output ramps the output voltages and can be configured for coincident or ratiometric tracking. Current foldback limits MOSFET heat dissipation during short-circuit conditions. The MODE/PLLIN pin selects among Burst Mode® operation, pulse-skipping or continuous inductor current modes.
