The LT8362 is a current mode DC/DC converter with a 60V, 2A switch operating from a 2.8V to 60V input. With a unique single feedback pin architecture it is capable of boost, SEPIC or inverting configurations. Burst Mode operation consumes as low as 9µA quiescent current to maintain high efficiency at very low output currents, while keeping typical output ripple below 15mV.
An external compensation pin allows optimization of loop bandwidth over a wide range of input and output voltages and programmable switching frequencies between 300kHz and 2MHz. A SYNC/MODE pin allows synchronization to an external clock. It can also be used to select between burst or pulse-skip modes of operation with or without Spread Spectrum Frequency Modulation for low EMI. For increased efficiency, a BIAS pin can accept a second input to supply the INTVCC regulator. Additional features include frequency foldback and programmable soft-start to control inductor current during startup.
The LT8362 is available in a thermally enhanced 10-lead 3mm × 3mm DFN package or a thermally enhanced 16-lead MSOP package with four pins removed.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit 2517A features the LT8362 in a CUK configuration. It operates with a switching frequency of 2MHz and is designed to convert a 4.5V to 42V source to –12V, with up to 1A output current (depending on input voltage). The LT8362 can operate with inputs as high as 60V, however, in this demo circuit, the input is limited by the maximum voltage across the switch (|VOUT| + VIN <60V).
Demo circuit 2628A features the LT8362 in boost configuration. The converter is designed to convert a 10V to 36V source to 48V at 280mA to 1000mA, depending on input voltage, and with a switching frequency of 2MHz.
