The LT3758/LT3758A are wide input range, current mode, DC/DC controllers which are capable of generating either positive or negative output voltages. They can be configured as either a boost, flyback, SEPIC or inverting converter. The LT3758/LT3758A drive a low side external N-channel power MOSFET from an internal regulated 7.2V supply. The fixed frequency, current-mode architecture results in stable operation over a wide range of supply and output voltages.
The operating frequency of LT3758/LT3758A can be set with an external resistor over a 100kHz to 1MHz range, and can be synchronized to an external clock using the SYNC pin. A minimum operating supply voltage of 5.5V, and a low shutdown quiescent current of less than 1μA, make the LT3758/LT3758A ideally suited for batterypowered systems.
The LT3758/LT3758A feature soft-start and frequency foldback functions to limit inductor current during start-up and output short-circuit. The LT3758A has improved load transient performance compared to the LT3758.

Demonstration circuit 1342B features the LT3758AEMSE in a 300kHz SEPIC converter circuit, designed for a 24V output from a 18V to 72V input. The LT3758A operates over an input range of 5.5V to 100V, and features a novel FBX pin architecture, which allows it to be connected directly to a resistor divider from either a positive output voltage or a negative output voltage.
Demonstration circuit 1412A features the LT3758EMSE in a 300kHz Flyback converter circuit, designed for 3.3V/3A output from a 18V to 75V input. The LT3758EMSE operates over an input range of 5.5V to 100V, suitable for automotive, telecom and industrial applications. It also exhibits low shutdown quiescent current of 1μA, making them an ideal fit for battery-operated systems. Thanks to a novel FBX pin architecture, the LT3758EMSE can be connected directly to a divider from either a positive output or a negative output to ground.
