  • PGOOD pin and RUN pin

Product Details

Demonstration circuit 2615A features the LTC7151S in a high efficiency 1.2V/15A step-down regulator with an input voltage range of 3.1V to 20V and a 1MHz switching frequency. The Silent Switcher®2 technology reduces the switching noise while the internal MOSFETs of the LTC7151S provide high efficiency over a wide input voltage range. No current sense resistor is required.

The LTC7151S employs a controlled on-time, valley current mode architecture. This architecture allows for a short minimum on-time which is ideal for high stepdown ratios. In addition, the architecture provides a fast load step response by allowing the switch node pulses to compress after the load steps up – see Figure 6.

The LTC7151S data sheet provides a complete description of the IC operation and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with the quick start guide.
