The LTM8025 is a 36VIN, 3A step down μModule® (power module) converter. Included in the package are the switching controller, power switches, inductor and all support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 3.6V to 36V, the LTM8025 supports an output voltage range of 0.8V to 24V and a switching frequency range of 200kHz to 2.4MHz, each set by a single resistor. Only the bulk input and output filter capacitors are needed to finish the design.
The LTM8025 is packaged in a thermally enhanced, compact (9mm × 15mm) and low profile over-molded land grid array (LGA) and ball grid array (BGA) packages suitable for automated assembly by standard surface mount equipment. The LTM8025 is available with SnPb (BGA) or RoHS compliant terminal finish.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1379B is a step-down DC/DC switching regulator featuring the LTM8025 μModule® regulator. The demo board is designed to deliver a 3.3V @ 3A output from a 5.5V to 36V input. The wide input range of the LTM8025 allows a variety of input sources such as automotive batteries, wall adaptors and industrial supplies. The modes of operation (Burst Mode® operation or synchronization) are jumper-selectable. Burst Mode operation improves efficiency at light loads. The LTM8025 can be synchronized over a 250kHz to 2MHz range.
