LTC3890-2: 12V SEPIC and 3.3V Step-Down Converter

12V SEPIC and 3.3V Step-Down Converter

The LTC®3890-2 is a high performance dual step-down switching regulator DC/DC controller that drives all N-channel synchronous power MOSFET stages. A constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phaselockable frequency of up to 850kHz. Power loss and noise due to the ESR of the input capacitor are minimized by operating the two controller output stages out-of-phase.
