The LT3471 dual switching regulator combines two 42V, 1.3A switches with error amplifiers that can sense to ground providing boost and inverting capability. The low VCESAT bipolar switches enable the device to deliver high current outputs in a small footprint. The LT3471 switches at 1.2MHz, allowing the use of tiny, low cost and low profile inductors and capacitors. High inrush current at start-up is eliminated using the programmable soft-start function, where an external RC sets the current ramp rate. A constant frequency current mode PWM architecture results in low, predictable output noise that is easy to filter.
