LT8608 Ultralow EMI 5V 1.5A Step-Down Converter

Ultralow EMI 5V 1.5A Step-Down Converter

The LT®8608 is a compact, high efficiency, high speed synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulator that consumes only 1.7μA of quiescent current. The LT8608 can deliver 1.5A of continuous current. Top and bottom power switches are included with all necessary circuitry to minimize the need for external components. Low ripple Burst Mode operation enables high efficiency down to very low output currents while keeping the output ripple below 10mV. A SYNC pin allows synchronization to an external clock, or spread spectrum modulation of switching frequencies for low EMI operation. Internal compensation with peak current mode topology allows the use of small inductors and results in fast transient response and good loop stability. The EN/UV pin has an accurate 1V threshold and can be used to program VIN undervoltage lockout or to shut down the LT8608 reducing the input supply current to 1μA. A capacitor on the TR/SS pin programs the output voltage ramp rate during start-up while the PG flag signals when VOUT is within ±8.5% of the programmed output voltage as well as fault conditions. The LT8608 is available in a small 10-lead MSOP package.
