The LT3477 is a current mode, 3A DC/DC step-up converter with dual rail-to-rail current sense amplifiers and an internal 3A, 42V switch. It combines a traditional voltage feedback loop and two unique current feedback loops to operate as a constant-current, constant-voltage source. Both current sense voltages are set at 100mV and can be adjusted independently using the IADJ1 and IADJ2 pins. Efficiency of up to 93% can be achieved in typical applications. The LT3477 features a programmable soft-start function to limit inductor current during start-up. Both inputs of the error amplifier are available externally allowing positive and negative output voltages (boost, inverting, SEPIC, Flyback). The switching frequency is programmable from 200kHz to 3.5MHz through an external resistor.
Available in thermally enhanced 20-pin (4mm × 4mm) QFN and 20-pin TSSOP packages, the LT3477 provides a complete solution for both constant-voltage and constantcurrent applications.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit 841 is a constant current LED boost converter with input current and output voltage protection featuring the LT3477. The board is optimized to drive 330mA LED arrays with a total LED voltage between the maximum input voltage and 36V. The input voltage range is 2.7V to 16V.
DC841 has overvoltage protection below 36V if the LEDs are open or not properly attached to the terminals on the PCB
