The LT3759 is a wide input range, current mode, DC/DC controller which is capable of regulating either positive or negative output voltages from a single feedback pin. It can be configured as a boost, SEPIC or inverting converter.
The LT3759 drives a low side external N-channel power MOSFET. An internal LDO regulator draws power from VIN or DRIVE to provide up to a 4.75V supply for the gate driver. The fixed frequency, current-mode architecture results in stable operation over a wide range of supply and output voltages. The operating frequency of LT3759 can be set over a 100kHz to 1MHz range with an external resistor, or can be synchronized to an external clock using the SYNC pin.
The LT3759 features soft-start and frequency foldback functions to limit inductor current during start-up and output short-circuit. A window comparator on the FBX pin reports via the PGOOD pin, providing output voltage status indication. The device is available in a 12-Lead exposed pad MSOP package.

Demonstration circuit 1725A features LT3759 in a 485kHz boost converter, designed for a 5V/2A output from a 1.8V to 4.5V input. The LT3759 is a current mode DC/DC Boost/SEPIC/Inverting controller operating over an input range of 1.6V to 42V. Thanks to a novel FBX pin architecture, the LT3759 allows both positive and negative output feedback voltages.
Demonstration circuit 1787A is a wide input voltage range SEPIC converter featuring the LT3759 controller. It converts a 2.8V~36V input to a 12V output, with 1A load current capability for VIN ≥ 4V. The converter operates at a 300 kHz nominal switching frequency, with 91% peak efficiency. The DC1787A can be easily modified to generate other output voltages, and can also be optimized for efficiency and size with narrower input voltage ranges.
