The LT3645 is a dual output regulator combining a 500mA buck regulator and a 200mA low dropout linear regulator (LDO). The wide input voltage range of 3.6V to 36V makes the LT3645 suitable for regulating power from a wide variety of sources, including 24V industrial supplies and automotive batteries. Its high operating frequency allows the use of tiny, low cost inductors and capacitors, resulting in a very small solution.
Cycle-by-cycle current limit and frequency foldback provide protection against shorted outputs. Soft-start and frequency foldback eliminate input current surge during start-up.
The linear regulator operates from the VCC2 pin at voltages down to 1.2V. It supplies 200mA of output current with a typical dropout voltage of 310mV.
Other features of the LT3645 include a <2μA shutdown, short circuit protection, soft-start and thermal shutdown. The LT3645 is available in the thermally enhanced 16-lead (3mm × 3mm) QFN package, or a 12-lead MSE package.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1428A features the dual output LT3645 step-down regulator plus linear regulator. The circuit is designed to convert a 5V to 36V (55V transients) input source to 3.3V at 500mA using the buck regulator and this output is linear regulated down to provide 2.5V at 200mA. Thus the two outputs provide 300mA (buck) and 200mA (LDO).
