The LTC®3869 is a high performance dual synchronous step-down switching regulator controller that drives all N-channel synchronous power MOSFET stages. A constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phaselockable frequency of up to 780kHz. Power loss and noise due to the ESR of the input capacitors are minimized by operating the two controller output stages out-of-phase.
OPTI-LOOP® compensation allows the transient response to be optimized over a wide range of output capacitance and ESR values. A wide 4V to 38V input supply range encompasses most battery chemistries. Independent TK/ SS pins for each controller ramp the output voltage during start-up. Current foldback limits MOSFET heat dissipation during short-circuit conditions. The MODE/PLLIN pin selects among Burst Mode® operation, pulse-skipping mode, or continuous inductor current mode and allows the IC to be synchronized to an external clock.
The LTC3869 is available in low profile 4mm × 4mm and 4mm × 5mm QFN packages. The LTC3869-2 is available in an SSOP-28 package. The LTC3869 is pin-compatible with the LTC3850.
