EVAL-LT8357-AZ - Schematic7/29/2021
Evaluation circuit EVAL-LT8357-AZ features the LT8357 as a 200kHz low EMI and low IQ, boost controller with a 24V output from 4.5V to 20V input. This evaluation circuit features Spread Spectrum Frequency Modulation (SSFM) and EMI filters to provide optimum EMI performance. The board also contains placeholders and an outline to attach clips for an optional EMI Shield attachment. This application circuit can output 2A (see Figure 4 Maximum Output Current vs VIN curve in the user guide). When placed in shutdown, the converter has very low quiescent current, ideal in automotive and other battery-powered applications. PULSE SKIP and BURST modes are selectable with jumper JP1. Each user-selectable option enables low quiescent current at light load and can also be combined with SSFM operation using JP1.
The LT8357 boost controller IC operates over an input range of 3V to 60V, suitable for automotive, telecom and industrial applications. It exhibits a low quiescent current of 8μA, making it ideal for battery-operated systems. It drives a low side N-channel power MOSFET with a 5V split gate drive. The converter provides adjustable and synchronizable operation from 100kHz to 2MHz with SSFM option. At light load, either PULSE SKIP or low-ripple BURST mode can be selected to improve the efficiency. The LT8357 packs popular features such as soft-start, input undervoltage lockout, adjustable switching frequency and clock synchronization. The Power Good (PGOOD) flag indicates when the output voltage is in regulation.
The LT8357 comes in a thermally enhanced 12-lead plastic MSE package. The LT8357 data sheet gives a complete description of the part, pins, features, operation, and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with the user guide for EVAL-LT8357-AZ.
