The LT3570 is a buck and boost converter with internal power switches and LDO controller. Each converter is designed with a 1.5A current limit and an input range from 2.5V to 36V, making the LT3570 ideal for a wide variety of applications. Switching frequencies up to 2.1MHz are programmed with an external timing resistor and the oscillator can be synchronized to an external clock up to 2.75MHz.
The LT3570 features a programmable soft-start function that limits the feedback voltage during start-up helping prevent overshoot and limiting inrush current. The LDO controller is capable of delivering up to 10mA of base current to an external NPN transistor.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1106 is a 1.5A Buck Converter, 1.5A Boost Converter, and LDO Controller featuring the LT3570. The Buck is designed to convert a 4V to 36V source to 3.3V at 1A. The LDO is powered from the output of the buck and converts 3.3V to 2.5V at 100mA. The boost converts a 3.3V to 10V source to 12V at 275mA.
