The LT3471 dual switching regulator combines two 42V, 1.3A switches with error amplifiers that can sense to ground providing boost and inverting capability. The low VCESAT bipolar switches enable the device to deliver high current outputs in a small footprint. The LT3471 switches at 1.2MHz, allowing the use of tiny, low cost and low profile inductors and capacitors. High inrush current at start-up is eliminated using the programmable soft-start function, where an external RC sets the current ramp rate. A constant frequency current mode PWM architecture results in low, predictable output noise that is easy to filter.
The LT3471 switches are rated at 42V, making the device ideal for boost converters up to ±40V as well as SEPIC and flyback designs. Each channel can generate 5V at up to 630mA from a 3.3V supply, or 5V at 510mA from four alkaline cells in a SEPIC design. The device can be configured as two boosts, a boost and inverter or two inverters.
The LT3471 is available in a low profile (0.75mm) 10-lead 3mm × 3mm DFN package.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1280A is a dual output converter featuring the LT3471EDD in Boost and Inverter configurations. Both converters are powered from the same 4.5V to 10V input source. The Boost converter puts out 12V at 300mA and the Inverter -12V at 200mA. The demo circuit demonstrates small size and low component count. The LT3471 operates with inputs as high as 16V but in this demo board the input is limited by the magnitude of the Boost output. In a Boost converter the input needs to be less than the output. The DC1280A is designed so that the Inverting converter can easily be configured as a Boost. Instructions are included in the schematic. Both circuits are designed to demonstrate the soft start feature, advantages of the 1.2MHz switching frequency and the internal 42V/1.3A switches.
