DC1516A-B - LTC3833EFE Demo Board | VIN = 4.5V to 24V, VOUT1 = 1.5V @ 15A, RSENSE

Demonstration circuit 1516A is a 1.5V/15A synchronous buck converter operating with a switching frequency of 300kHz over an input voltage range of 4.5V to 24V. The demo board comes in two versions. The -A version uses inductor DCR current sensing with an iron powder inductor for highest efficiency. The -B version uses a 2.5mΩ/1% sense resistor for accurate current sensing with a low DCR ferrite inductor. The fixed on-time valley current mode control of the LTC®3833 allows for a fast load step response.
