LTC7818 – 40V, Low IQ, 3MHz, Triple Output Buck/Buck/Boost Synchronous Controller

Analog Devices LTC7818 Triple Output Synchronous Controllers are high-performance synchronous DC/DC switching regulator controllers that drive all N-channel power MOSFET stages. Its constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phase-lockable switching frequency of up to 3MHz. The LTC7818 operates from a wide 4.5V to 40V input supply range. When biased from the output of the boost converter or another auxiliary supply, the LTC7818 can operate from an input supply as low as 1V after start-up.

The very low no-load quiescent current extends operating run time in battery-powered systems. OPTI-LOOP® compensation allows the transient response to be optimized over a wide range of output capacitance and ESR values. The LTC7818 features a precision 0.8V reference for the bucks, 1.2V reference for the boost, and a power-good output indicator. The LTC7818 additionally features spread-spectrum operation which significantly reduces the peak radiated and conducted noise on both the input and output supplies, making it easier to comply with electromagnetic interference (EMI) standards.
