The LTM4609 is a high efficiency switching mode buck-boost power supply. Included in the package are the switching controller, power FETs and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 4.5V to 36V, the LTM4609 supports an output voltage range of 0.8V to 34V, set by a resistor. This high efficiency design delivers up to 4A continuous current in boost mode (10A in buck mode). Only the inductor, sense resistor, bulk input and output capacitors are needed to finish the design.
Tools & Simulations
LTpowerCAD® is a power supply design program which selects power stage components, provides detailed power efficiency, shows quick loop Bode plot stability and load transient analysis, and can export to LTspice for simulation.
