Product Details

The LTC3809-1 is a synchronous step-down switching regulator controller that drives external complementary power MOSFETs using few external components. The constant frequency current mode architecture with MOSFET VDS sensing eliminates the need for a current sense resistor and improves efficiency.

Optional Burst Mode operation provides high efficiency operation at light loads. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout operation, extending operating time in battery-powered systems. Burst Mode is inhibited when the MODE pin is pulled low to reduce noise and RF interference.

The LTC3809-1 allows either coincident or ratiometric output voltage tracking. Switching frequency is fixed at 550kHz. Fault protection is provided by an overvoltage comparator and a short-circuit current limit comparator.

The LTC3809-1 is available in tiny footprint thermally enhanced DFN and 10-lead MSOP packages.
