Description

The LTC®7124 is a dual channel, 3.5A per output, high efficiency monolithic step-down regulator capable of operating from input supplies up to 17V. The programmable switching frequency ranges from 500kHz to 4MHz with a ±25% external clock synchronization capability around the programmed frequency. The regulator features ultralow quiescent current for high efficiency over a wide VOUT range.

The step-down regulator operates from an input voltage range of 3.1V to 17V and provides an adjustable output range from 0.6V to 99% of VIN while delivering up to 3.5A of output current per channel. A user selectable mode input is provided to allow the user to trade off output ripple for light load efficiency; Burst Mode® operation provides the highest efficiency at light loads, while forced-continuous mode provides the lowest output ripple. The LTC7124 includes spread spectrum modulation for low radiated and conductive noise. The LTC7124 is offered in a thermally enhanced, low profile 24-lead 3mm × 5mm QFN package.
