The LT3514 consists of three buck regulators (2A, 1A, 1A output current). The device has a wide operating input range of 3.2V to 36V. An on-chip boost regulator allows each channel to operate up to 100% duty cycle. The LT3514 is designed to minimize external component count and results in a simple and small application circuit.
The LT3514 operates robustly in fault conditions. Cycleby- cycle peak current limit and catch diode current limit sensing protect the IC during overload conditions. Thermal shutdown protects the power switches at elevated temperatures. Soft-start helps control the peak inductor current during startup.
The LT3514 also features output voltage tracking and sequencing, programmable frequency, programmable undervoltage lockout, and a power good pin to indicate when all outputs are in regulation.
The LT3514 has one fewer channel (CH2) than the LT3504, and has one channel (CH3) that outputs 2A instead of 1A. The LT3514 in QFN is pin compatible with the LT3504. The LT3504 provides four 1A outputs.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1980A is a triple current mode PWM step-down DC/DC converter featuring the LT3514. The demo circuit is designed for 5V, 3.3V and 1.8V outputs from a 5.4V to 36V input. The current capability of 5V and 1.8V outputs is 1A and the 3.3V output is capable of 2A output. Individual soft-start and current limit for each output as well as frequency synchronous function simplify the complex design of triple-output power converters.
