The LT8390A is a synchronous 4-switch buck-boost DC/DC controller that regulates output voltage, input or output current from an input voltage above, below, or equal to the output voltage. The proprietary peak-buck peak-boost current mode control scheme allows adjustable and synchronizable 600kHz to 2MHz fixed frequency operation, or internal 25% triangle spread spectrum frequency modulation for low EMI. With a 4V to 60V input voltage range, 0V to 60V output voltage capability, and seamless low-noise transitions between operation regions, the LT8390A is ideal for voltage regulator, battery and supercapacitor charger applications in automotive, industrial, telecom, and even battery-powered systems.
The LT8390A provides input or output current monitor and power good flag. Fault protection is also provided to detect output short-circuit condition, during which the LT8390A retries, latches off, or keeps running.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2598A is a 60V 2MHz synchronous buck-boost controller featuring the LT8390A. It accepts an input voltage from 4V to 24V (with transient to 60V) and regulates 12V output at up to 4A. DC2598A features high efficiency and 2MHz switching frequency, a high speed for a 4-switch buck-boost controller. It has a PGOOD flag, short-circuit fault protection, ISMON current-monitoring output signal, and spread spectrum frequency modulation (SSFM) or frequency synchronization.
