Product Details

High Power 300kHz, Negative Boost Converter Generates a –12V/4.5A Output from a –4.5V to –9V Input

The LT®8709 is a synchronous PWM controller for negativeto- negative or negative-to-positive DC/DC conversion, with rail-to-rail output current monitor and control. The LT8709 is ideal for many local power supply designs. It can be easily configured in buck, boost, buck-boost, and inverting topologies with negative input voltages.

Tools & Simulations


LTspice® is a powerful, fast and free simulation software, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of analog circuits.

To launch ready-to-run LTspice demonstration circuits for this part:

Step 1: Download and install LTspice on your computer.

Step 2: Click on the link in the section below to download a demonstration circuit.

Step 3: If LTspice does not automatically open after clicking the link below, you can instead run the simulation by right clicking on the link and selecting “Save Target As.” After saving the file to your computer, start LTspice and open the demonstration circuit by selecting ‘Open’ from the ‘File’ menu.
