The LT3959 is a current mode DC/DC converter with an integrated 6A, 40V switch. It can operate over an input range of 1.6V to 40V, suitable for applications from singlecell lithium-ion battery portable electronics up to high voltage automotive and industrial power supplies. It also exhibits low shutdown quiescent current of <1μA, making it an ideal fit for battery-operated systems. Thanks to a novel FBX pin architecture, the LT3959 can be connected directly to a divider from either positive or negative output to ground. It also packs many popular features such as soft-start, input undervoltage lockout, adjustable frequency and synchronization. Demonstration circuit 1853A features LT3959 in a 300kHz boost converter, designed for 12V output from 2V to 10V input (VIN).
