LT3480 3.3V Step-Down Converter

3.3V Step-Down Converter

The LT®3480 is an adjustable frequency (200kHz to 2.4MHz) monolithic buck switching regulator that accepts input voltages up to 36V (60V maximum). A high efficiency 0.25 switch is included on the die along with a boost Schottky diode and the necessary oscillator, control, and logic circuitry. Current mode topology is used for fast transient response and good loop stability. Low ripple Burst Mode operation maintains high efficiency at low output currents while keeping output ripple below 15mV in a typical application. In addition, the LT3480 can further enhance low output current efficiency by drawing bias current from the output when VOUT is above 3V.
