Demonstration circuit 1757B is a high efficiency synchronous buck-boost DC/DC converter with a 6V to 36V input voltage range. It can supply a 12A maximum load current with a 12V output. The demo board features the LTC3789EGN controller. The constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phase-lockable frequency of up to 600kHz, while an optional output current feedback loop provides support for applications such as battery charging. With a wide input range, wide output range and seamless transfers between operation modes, the LTC3789 is ideal for automotive, telecom, distributed DC power systems and battery-powered applications.
