LT3685 3.3V Step-Down Converter

3.3V Step-Down Converter

The LT®3685 is an adjustable frequency (200kHz to 2.4MHz) monolithic step-down switching regulator that accepts input voltages up to 38V operating and 60V maximum. An internal overvoltage protection circuit turns off the power switch when VIN is above 38V typical (36V minimum) which then allows the part to safely withstand 60V transients. A high effi ciency 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. The LT3685’s high operating frequency allows the use of small, low cost inductors and ceramic capacitors resulting in low output ripple while keeping total solution size to a minimum.
