LTC3784 Video Product Brief

The LTC3784 is a high performance PolyPhase® single output synchronous boost converter controller that drives two N-channel power MOSFET stages out-of-phase. Multiphase operation reduces input and output capacitor requirements and allows the use of smaller inductors than the single-phase equivalent. Synchronous rectification increases efficiency, reduces power losses and eases thermal requirements, simplifying high power boost applications. A 4.5V to 60V input supply range encompasses a wide range of system architectures and battery chemistries. When biased from the output of the boost converter or another auxiliary supply, the LTC3784 can operate from an input supply as low as 2.3V after start-up. The operating frequency can be set within a 50kHz to 900kHz range or synchronized to an external clock using the internal PLL. PolyPhase operation allows the LTC3784 to be configured for 2-, 3-, 4-, 6- and 12-phase operation.
