Product Details

The LT3957 is a wide input range, current mode DC/DC converter which is capable of generating either positive or negative output voltages. It can be configured as either a boost, flyback, SEPIC or inverting converter. It features an internal low side N-channel power MOSFET rated for 40V at 5A and driven from an internal regulated 5.2V supply. The fixed frequency, current-mode architecture results in stable operation over a wide range of supply and output voltages.

The operating frequency of LT3957 can be set with an external resistor over a 100kHz to 1MHz range, and can be synchronized to an external clock using the SYNC pin. A minimum operating supply voltage of 3V, and a low shutdown quiescent current of less than 1μA, make the LT3957 ideally suited for battery-powered systems.

The LT3957 features soft-start and frequency foldback functions to limit inductor current during start-up.
