LTC3874 Video Product Brief

The LTC3874 is a dual PolyPhase® current mode synchronous step-down slave controller. It enables high current, multi-phase applications when paired with a companion master controller by extending the phase count. Compatible master controllers include the LTC3866, LTC3875 and LTC3774. The LTC3874 employs a unique architecture that enhances the signal-to-noise ratio of the current sense signal, allowing the use of sub-milliohm DC resistance power inductors to maximize efficiency while reducing switching jitter. Its peak current mode architecture allows for accurate phase to phase current sharing even for dynamic loads. Effectively working with a master controller, the LTC3874 supports all the programmable features as well as fault protection. The constant operating frequency can be synchronized to an external clock or linearly programmed from 250kHz to 1MHz.
