The LT3503 is a current mode PWM step-down DC/DC converter with an internal 1.45A power switch. The wide operating input range of 3.6V to 20V makes the LT3503 ideal for regulating power from a wide variety of sources. Its high operating frequency allows the use of tiny, low cost inductors and ceramic capacitors, resulting in low, predictable output ripple.
Cycle-by-cycle current limit provides protection against shorted outputs and soft-start eliminates input current surge during start-up. The low current (<2µA) shutdown mode provides output disconnect, enabling easy power management in battery-powered systems.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1050 is a monolithic step-down DC/DC switching regulator featuring the LT3503. The demo board is designed for a 3.3V/1.2A output from a 4.5V to 20V input. The 2.2MHz switching frequency allows the use of small, low cost external components and results in a low, predictable output ripple.
