DC957A - LTC3785EUF Demo Board | No Rsense, 2.7V ≤ VIN ≤ 10V, Vout = 3.3V @ 3A

Demonstration circuit 957 is a wide input range, 3.3V / 3.0A output synchronous buck-boost controller featuring the LTC3785. This circuit was designed to demonstrate the high levels of performance, efficiency, and small solution size attainable using this part in a buck-boost power supply. It operates at 500kHz and produces a regulated 3.3V, 3.0A output from an input voltage range of 2.7 to 10V. It is suitable for portable applications, and has a footprint area that is 0.36 square inches. Synchronous rectification helps to attain efficiency up to 96%, depending on line and load. The LTC3785 provides current limit and shutdown disconnect. It offers Burst Mode® operation for high efficiency at light loads.
