The LTM4614 s a complete 4A dual output switching mode step-down µModule® regulator. Included in the package are the switching controllers, power FETs, inductors and all support components. The dual 4A DC/DC converters operate over an input voltage range of 2.375V to 5.5V. The LTM4614 supports output voltages ranging from 0.8V to 5V. The regulator output voltages are set by a single resistor for each output. Only bulk input and output capacitors are needed to complete the design.
The low profile package (2.82mm) enables utilization of unused space on the bottom of PC boards for high density point of load regulation.
Additional features include overvoltage protection, foldback overcurrent protection, thermal shutdown and programmable soft-start. The power module is offered in a space saving and thermally enhanced 15mm × 15mm × 2.82mm LGA package. The LTM4614 is RoHS compliant with Pb-free finish.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit DC1385A features the LTM4614EV, the high efficiency, high density power module with dual 4A switch mode outputs. In the default configuration, the two outputs share the same input supply, which ranges from 2.375V to 5.5V, however each regulator may have its own input supply simply by removing a resistor. The device is configured for 1.2V and 1.8V outputs. Derating is necessary for certain VIN, VOUT, and thermal conditions.
